Grown in ancient forests at high altitude, this Papua New Guinea coffee is as smooth as silk. Each bean releases dark cocoa flavours, as well as a hint of berry.
This high altitude, single origin Arabica coffee bean is grown in highland forests. Family-owned estates grow the original Jamaica Blue Mountain varieties that flourish under the shade of old forests. BlackGold is a beautiful even bean with a rich and smooth body. A great brew any which way, but a filter, stovetop or espresso will produce a stronger brew.
The Body & Brightness Profiles:
When you first taste a coffee, you should first assess its body or mouth feel and also just how acidic or bright it is. You may like a coffee that has a whole lot of body but with low acidity. Or you may like a mellower mouth feel but a brighter acidity. It really is a personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
BlackGold has good body and a medium brightness.
The Flavour Profiles:
What sets each individual coffee apart will be the flavours or what we call the “tasting notes”. The tasting notes are many and varied ranging from floral to nutty, spicy to berry, chocolaty to citrusy, just to name a few. These flavours make each coffee very different and so special. Where the coffee is grown, climate, elevation, soil type and harvesting techniques will all impact on the flavour so unique to each coffee.
