Papua New Guinea Peaberry
|Roaster Location:||Ventura, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Wahgi Valley, Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||December 2003|
Opens with a very sweet, very intense but balanced aroma complicated by apples and flowers. In the cup the gentle acidity subordinates itself to a melodic sweetness and a rich, deeply dimensioned chocolate- and apple-toned fruit. Lyric and seductive.
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. This small-producer coffee is grown at elevations of around 5,200 feet. Peaberries result when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Peaberries produce a somewhat different (usually better) cup than normal beans from the same crop. Moore Coffee is a small retail and wholesale roaster that also offers a range of other fancy foods and beverages through its website. Visit
