This weeks Single Origin review: The Papua New Guinean.
Standing as a liberated state, first encounters reveal a bold and hearty sense of pride emanating from the surface of this dark and brooding blend. Peer searchingly into its depths however, and the profundity of this brew’s cultural and environmental complexity strikes deep into your soul, captivating all with its desire to communicate in 848 languages. The sipper cannot help but be transfixed by an unwavering sense of longing to journey through and become one with the 7 million odd inhabitants that remain in richly-diverse, and traditional customary communities.
As the molten, earthy liquid flows over the palate, causing eruptions of rapture - much like the magma flows of the Tavurvur Volcano - the apparent un-liveability of this nation’s capital melts away, and is rapidly replaced by a condensed jungle flavour which teems with the vibrancy of countless undiscovered species of plants and animals.
