Story of the Bean:
The world has enjoyed almost a century of distinctive and flavorful coffee from the central mountain range of Papua New Guinea. Those highlands support thousands of producers who maintain small coffee gardens consisting of as few as 20 plants. The Arokara Cooperative in the Eastern Highlands is one of the groups collecting cherry from these gardens and ensuring only well-processed high-quality coffee is delivered. This hand-selected lot creates an effervescent cup, sparkling with the light acidity of white grapes balanced by the earthy sweetness of molasses and blackberries.

Surprised but not how I wanted

As typical with all La Colombe coffee, the quality is top notch. Specifically, the notes of Prosecco stood out, but what was surprising was the overwhelming bitterness that lingers at the end. It just wasn’t something I have come to expect with LC coffees and I am not sure if it was because this was just a bad batch or actually how the coffee presents. I won’t say don’t try it, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it if there are other beans you’re wanting to try.
