I really glad you enjoyed it. Sorry USPS took so long getting it to you during the holidays.Just received my coffee and fired up a pot of the Papua New Guinea Korgua Estate Peaberry and it's absolutely delicious. Love the hints of dried fruit without too much sweetness. Well done and will be ordering more!
LOVE New Guinea Peaberry! It has to be one of the best and most unique flavors.Just received my coffee and fired up a pot of the Papua New Guinea Korgua Estate Peaberry and it's absolutely delicious. Love the hints of dried fruit without too much sweetness. Well done and will be ordering more!
Teddy,When I received my coffee order I had just the day before opened a bag of the local I've been brewing..
It took a bit till i was done with it before I would open another bag..
I opened the Papua New Guinea Korgua Estate Peaberry this morning..
If you'll excuse me,
I haven't had a cup of coffee this good in years,
Like I said before, I used to get consistently fantastic coffee from East Africa, Tanzanian peaberry, Kenya AA..
The coffee's from there just haven't beem what they used to be..
This bag I just opened is some of the best coffee I've ever had, from anywhere..
I can't wait to open the other bag..
Thank you so much,,
PS. Do you have anything that's decaf,
I know that's probably a dirty word here, lol..
A friend has high blood pressure..
It’s here. https://www.bluelavacoffeeroasters.com/roasts/rwanda-nyamasheke-decafdb,
I went to the site to order but I didn't see any decaf..
Excellent! Sumatra’s are my personal favorite. It’s a polarizing coffee. People either love it or hate it. I’m glad we share an affinity for the region.The Korgua Estate Peaberry was my favorite; all 3 that I ordered were delicious. Ordered more the Korgua and going to try the Sumatra, as almost every coffee I've had from Sumatra I've loved. Kudos to great beans and roasts!
I fully agree! The trend towards brown hot water vs coffee taste is disappointing.It’s just my opinion on it, everyone likes coffee their own way and I don’t think you should let anyone tell you what you like!!!!! I like roasting to a much more developed coffee than is trendy, and I’m just hoping to find people that enjoy it that way as well!
I tried to roast that PNG darker when I first got it and everything sort of disappeared. Other PNGs have handled the heat better, but I had to back off a bit on these peaberrys. The Sumatra always can handle a darker profile and I believe really shine at what I consider Vienna roast. And yes, the lingering flavors are what I’m looking for as well.I fully agree! The trend towards brown hot water vs coffee taste is disappointing.
Now on that note, I received my Korgua Estate Peaberry and while I like it, I would prefer just a slightly darker roast.
But again that is personal preference.
My go-to is normally Sumatra in a dark roast.
I like a coffee to leave a lingering after-taste in my mouth that Sumatra typically does.
But I am also a beer brewer and familiar with the effect that over-roasting has on flavor.
It is a balancing act.
LOL, been there!I love coffee too, espresso is my version of choice, but yesterday it took vengeance on me. I had meetings all morning, hit the coffee machine between each one and just lost track. I got the shakes around 1, and took my pulse...about 20 bpm fast. I crashed so hard around 5 (exhausted, vaguely nauseous) it was self-inflicted stupid miserable.
Looking back I was over 10 shots, probably 12-14...too freakin much. Between the Nespresso at home and the Jura at work, it is real easy to rack up the caffeine hits. I had 4 shots today, then switched to water, much better.
A few years ago I was working on a team that had a large number of Chinese engineers who drank a lot of tea but not so experienced with coffee.My caffeine overdose story is a little different. My wife and I were making chocolate truffles for family Christmas presents one year. It took a long time so I was drinking coffee and eating chocolate. We made some with espresso beans on top and I also made a chai tea concentrate to add to one batch. Anyway, after hours of this (sampling the whole time) I went to bed. I woke up not long after and the room was spinning like I had drank a whole bottle of tequila!!!! Mind you, I had been sober for around 15 years at that time but I was instantly brought back to my crazy youth by that old familiar feeling!!!! I didn’t throw up but thought I was going to. I figured out later it was a caffeine O.D.!!!
I really can’t eat truffles anymore!!! But I can’t kick the coffee habit!!! I don’t mess with drinking a bunch of shots though, that can be dangerous weather it’s coffee or tequila
Ok. Sumatran is my new favorite. Rich and earthy, with date/fig flavors and a touch of persimmon (and maybe blueberry?). Really enjoying your coffees! Outstanding roast!I tried to roast that PNG darker when I first got it and everything sort of disappeared. Other PNGs have handled the heat better, but I had to back off a bit on these peaberrys.

p.s. maybe that come my years in the brewery as well
Love the feedback. Thanks for giving it a try.
Looks like fun. I haven’t had the cascara yet. I see the coffee in your hand, but what is in all the other cups on the table??On our weekend away we did a coffee tasting at one of the local outlets. There was a bit of an introduction about the products and then the tasting (and buying). There was a Brazilian one, one from Ethiopia, one blended brew, and a tea called cascara made from the outer flesh of the berries (tastes a bit like raisins). Interesting expedition.
