Papua New Guinea Kunjin

Papua New Guinea Kunjin

Kunjin in a mill in the Waghi Valley within the Western Highlands. The mill processes and blends the coffee brought in from small farmers in the immediate surrounding area. With that said, the coffee offerings are hit and miss, but this one really caught my attention even though we usually have better luck with Eastern Highlands coffees. It does not have organic certification, but Papua New Guinea is organic by law, so certification is not necessary on coffee from here.

The beans are largely made up of Blue Mountain varietal, but also some lesser known Arusha and San Ramon mixed in. It is grown at 4,000+ feet above sea level. It is sorted by bean size, and these are the A size, which are the second-largest.

I love this one as a light roast -- get through the first cracks, but don't take it too much beyond that. This bean is complex in taste, sweet, and has exotic fruity notes. It's very creamy, buttery, almost amaretto, slight mango, slight chocolate. If you get it too light, you'll get some underdeveloped flavors of grassy or vegetable notes, so give it a few degrees darker the next time, but if you get it too dark it loses its sweetness and complexity.
