Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweet, poised. Pear, raisin, dark chocolate, almond, wisteria-like flowers in aroma and cup. Balanced, round, juicy acidity; light but satiny mouthfeel. Hints of pear, flowers and chocolate carry into an understated but sweetly balanced finish.
Notes: The high mountain valleys of central Papua New Guinea offer some of the world’s most favorable terroirs for production of fine coffee, although the rugged terrain presents daunting transportation and infrastructure challenges. Bootstrap is the definition of a quality dedicated nano-roaster, with every bag carefully prepared by the roaster himself. Visit www.bootstrapcoffeeroasters.com for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a delicate but deeply expressed, subtly original cup.
