Private Reserve Papua New Guinea
|Roaster Location:||Baton Rouge, Louisiana|
|Coffee Origin:||Highlands of Papua New Guinea|
|Review Date:||March 2006|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly smoky, cedary aroma with a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. In the cup a particularly full body and creamy mouthfeel, sweetly and richly acidy, but with limited nuance - hints of cedar and tart cherry, perhaps a continuing suggestion of semi-sweet chocolate. Simple but sweetly rich finish.
Notes: Private Reserve is the upscale specialty line of Community Coffee, a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Breakfast cuppers who prefer richness to delicacy.
