Papua New Guinea – Nadam Estate
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Coffee Origin:||Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
The aroma is high-toned but pungent, laced with caramel, cantaloupe and leather. In the cup a sweet, wine-toned fruit leads, with richly malty, bracingly bitter tones opening up behind. The bitterness dissolves in the long, clean, chocolate-toned finish.
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. The Roasterie is a leading, quality-oriented specialty roaster that emphasizes its commitment to "air roasting," a technology utilizing a column of hot air rather than the conventional turning drum to agitate the roasting beans.
