Buoyant, delicate, vivacious. A bouquet of flowers — rose, magnolia, more — plus lemon, sandalwood, fresh tobacco in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart in structure with a big, savory bottom. Syrupy but lively mouthfeel. Rich, sweet, balanced finish: tobacco, lemon.
Produced on Baroida Estate from a range of traditional varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (sun-dried in the whole fruit), an atypical method for Papua New Guinea. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious, high-quality coffee. Visit redroostercoffee.com or call 540-745-7338 for more information.
The unusual aromatics of this big-bodied coffee simultaneously suggest florist shop, lemonade parlor and cigar humidor. Take your time with this one — its originality emerges best with attention and patience.
