Jersey Shore Coffee Roasters
Papua New Guinea Kimel A
|Roaster Location:||Leonardo, New Jersey|
|Coffee Origin:||Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||April 2009|
Co-cupper Jennifer Stone (88) remarked on this coffee?s winy acidity and pungent flavor and aromatics; Ken (89) glossed pungent with references to spicy aromatic wood and backgrounded dark chocolate. The finish stays on the rich side of astringent.
"A" is the second-highest grade of Papua New Guinea coffee based on bean size and number of visual defects; the highest grade, seldom offered, is "AA." Judging from the cup, this is a small-holder coffee. Located in the historic seaside town of Leonardo, Jersey Shore Coffee Roasters operates a cafe with a comprehensive in-house roasting program.
