About the farm
I love a dark roast to get me going in the morning. But If I am going to have a coffee after midday this is my go to.
Have not had great results. Some bitterness. Have a good grinder - ECM - and machine and weigh each grinding to get consistency. Time the shot at 25 seconds. Taken your tip of adding a tiny touch of salt to take bitterness away. Have been making espresso coffees at home for many years so. Will keep trying but might try a Central American coffee next. I have had mixed experiences with New Guinea coffee and told it suffers from inconsistencies.
I continue to enjoy this PNG coffee, which I understand is a Bourbon/Typica combination. It has a delightful floral aroma and a lovely flavour to match with notes of chocolate. Can highly recommend.
Was a good quality coffee that was smooth and full-bodied. A friend of mine who I made it for at my house really enjoyed it, but she admittedly dislikes sweet coffee. I on the other hand, definitely have a sweet tooth. Service and delivery were great as always from Coffee Beans Delivered. Would recommend for those who like a darker roasted coffee.
Dark chocolate is not really my favourite type of chocolate but as notes in this good quality coffee from Papua New Guinea I got to enjoy it with well texturised milk and a dash of sugar. I’ll give it 5 stars as the grind smells wonderful and the crema is thick.
