Papua New Guinea is actually one of the least explored islands on earth. Apparently they say it’s possible that there are dozens of indigenous tribes or communities living on the island that have not had contact with the modern world. It is entirely possible that there are undiscovered plants or animals on the island.
Quite a mysterious place..
Now although PNG (Papua New Guinea) is relatively close to Indonesia, their coffees could not be more different in flavour.
While Indonesian coffees are usually quite well balanced, PNG coffees tend to edge more toward the fruity side of the spectrum exhibiting a lot of acidity and wine-like notes.
This particular coffee has a bit of a cherry scent to it, and if you “taste” deep enough you can feel hints and splashes of a fruity, sweet cherry.
The coffee is grown at an altitude of 1600m and harvested between May and August. Our green coffee supplier has given it a SCAA score of 84, which is pretty impressive.
If you have not tried this origin, then get to it! Not often you will find this on your supermarket shelves or in coffee shops.
