The Peaberry strain from Papua New Guinea has a very smooth mouth feel. It is one that you don’t need to add anything to given the vibrant notes. It has a very bright acidity and a lot of bright citrus notes (grapefruit, lemon, orange zest). It also has the sweetness that some would compare to a peach like hint. While being so bright, this coffee has a lot of depth as well; you can find some rich dark chocolate notes along with deep red berries such as raspberry. It is a complex and beautiful coffee.
The fact that it is typically grown at a higher altitude and the quality of the volcanic soil that it is grown, plus the valley it is grown in (Waghi Valley) and that it is fully washed and sun dried makes for a great crop.
I thought more than twice about paying 38.00 for a lb of coffee but I received it today and ground some of the dark roast beans…WOW!!! I consider myself as a self proclaimed coinsurer of fine coffees from all over the world. I have had the best in Italy, Germany, France and even Turkey (not from, but in)…my search has ended…Blue Mountain has blown everything else away hands down!C. Dixon, San Antonio, TX
