Papua New Guinea, Medium Dark
|Roaster Location:||Baton Rouge, Louisiana|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea.|
|Review Date:||February 2003|
Blind Assessment: Exquisitely balanced cup. Delicately acidy and sweet with clean, high-toned fruit that nods gently at chocolate. Restrained yet complex; precious. Green buyer Carl Leonard finds this coffee "exhibits all the best attributes [that this] origin should deliver."
Notes: Papua New Guinea, which occupies the eastern half of the enormous island of New Guinea, produces some of the world's finest and most distinctive coffees. CC's Coffee is the upscale specialty line of Community Coffee, a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Visit
Who Should Drink It : Subtle palates that prefer elegance to grandeur.
