Oceanian Fair Trade
Origin: Papua New Guinea
Processing: Pulped and sun dried
Cupping Notes: On the nose, sweet chocolate notes with fruity, smokey tones. In the cup, full bodied with nutty, chocolate, and fruity sweetness. A crisp and clean finish. Organically grown.
These cupping notes are relative to light roast profiles. As the roast profile darkens toward medium to medium/dark, these notes will be slightly eclipsed, resulting in more sweetness and roasted flavor. Once the french roast profile is attained, most of the aforementioned cupping notes will be difficult to detect.
Additional Information: Papua New Guinea, in the southwestern Pacific, encompasses the eastern half of large island of New Guinea north of Australia. PNG is one of the least explored places left on earth, with dense rainforests, rugged mountains and many diverse indigenous people (with over 800 languages spoken). This coffee is grown in the eastern mountainous highlands regions; 40% of the population of PNG derives income from coffee farming.
