I’ve been eyeing this Papua New Guinea Barioda coffee for awhile now. I am not sure why it took me so long to order, but I am just glad that I finally made the jump.
26/340g • Grind on the finer side or #20 on Preciso • Time: 2:30 including 30 second bloom (enough water to saturate)
Beautiful cup. Aroma featured a pronounced orange play, white peaches, and pineapple up front. Underneath, a touch of honey, and spice.
Taste is a total fruit bomb carrying peaches, pineapple, and light orange play. I also found a touch of spice as the cup began to cool along with a tart lemon play. Coffee is really juicy and fruity.
17/230g • Grind slightly coarser than medium or #24 on Preciso • Time: 1:00 steep (with stir), 45 sec plunge
Aroma carries pineapple upfront with honey and white peaches.
Cup starts with a pineapple like sweetness and then morphs into a deep chocolate sweetness and then morphs again bring out a tart lemon play. Coffee carries a tropical, juicy, yet chocolaty sweet play to it.
The coffee has strong tropical fruit notes with a floral and herbaceous finish. It is medium to heavy bodied with a well balanced mild acidity. ~ Batdorf & Bronsons Coffee Roasters
Jason Dominy wasn’t joking when he said this coffee was like crack. I can’t compare crack with coffee, but I will say this was one addicting coffee. I was literally brewing one cup after another until I had to force myself to stop after having too much caffeine in my system.
This coffee is seriously like crack its so good. It’s just an all around beautiful coffee.
