Camano Island Coffee Roasters
Papua New Guinea Light Roast
|Roaster Location:||Camano Island, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Highlands of Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||April 2009|
Blind Assessment: Crisp, straightforward coffee; co-cupper Jennifer Stone (89) was impressed by its full mouthfeel and rather deep dimension, Ken (88) by its general balance and poise. The pleasant but muted aromatics were difficult to sort out with any precision; Jennifer tended toward caramel and chocolate; Ken was more into nut. Lest that sounds too much like sundae toppings, these were crisp, bitter-sweet, coffee-contexted nuances.
Notes: By general industry standards, a medium roast rather than a light roast. Located on Camano Island, north of Seattle, Camano Island Coffee Roasters is focused on fresh roasted coffee that is organic, shade grown and fairly traded. They offer "The Coffee Lover?s Club" for those who like to receive regular shipments of coffee. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A mildly Pacificized rendition of a classic Central America style cup.
