Waghi Valley, Papua New Guinea

With its profound, beautifully rich body and sweet notes of dark chocolate, cherry, and vanilla, this impressive lot from Counter Culture's partners in Papua New Guinea is one of the most exciting coffee discoveries of the year.
 
Cupping Comments from Coffee Review
Overall Rating: 93 points 
Notes: The high mountain valleys of central Papua New Guinea offer some of the world's most favorable terroirs for production of fine coffee. When these coffees, grown by local villagers, are carefully prepared by the traditional wet or washed method, as is the case with this coffee, they can rank among the world's finest. 
Blind Assessment: Ken (93) and co-cupper Jennifer Stone (92) both remarked on the bright, richly floral character of the aroma. In the cup quietly vibrant acidity, smooth mouthfeel, continued gentle richness, with a flavor complex that combines lush night flowers with a sweet pungency pointing at cedar, caramel and deep-toned, carnal fruit: apricot, mango. Long, deep finish.
Who should drink it: A particularly refined and explicit expression of the pungent, tropical fruit and floral tendencies of small-holder Papua New Guineas. A breakfast cup that took a detour through the mango groves out to the beach.
