Roasted Coffee: Java Sunda - Gunung Parigi & Papua New Guinea Bauka Plantation

Roasted Coffee: Java Sunda - Gunung Parigi & Papua New Guinea Bauka Plantation

January 8th, 2015

Two Indonesian coffees that present a very interesting representation of their origin. These two coffees bring forth everything great about Indonesian coffees and then some. Both show unique rustic sweetness, hearty body and rich aroma. 

 Java Sunda - Gunung Parigi City+

Right out of the grinder there is vanilla, ground cinnamon, and sweet spices. The vanilla aroma while brewed and sitting in the cup, stands out even more. The aroma also blends caramel, molasses and sweet honey with nice amount of cedar. I really like the aroma of this coffee if you can't already tell! This sweet Java is loaded with bittersweet chocolate flavors and syrupy body. The acidity is a bit held back when warm, but peaks out when cooled. 

Papua New Guinea Bauka Plantation City+

The sweetness of the grinds is a mix of damp earth and sugar. The wet aroma is deeply sweet, like a waffle cone. There is also a pine and eucalyptus refreshing quality in both the aromatics and taste. This PNG resembles all the greatness that a Sumatra coffee can offer with a little more clarity and acidity on the tongue. 

 

Here are the green coffees:
