    PNG Goroka A

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Well, a balmy >10 and falling here trying to snow but thought I'd try some of the Goroka that turned up yesterday!
    Struggled to get the heat into it with the ambient temps, so a nice gentle profile, and then dropped it a little earlier than I would for most beans, a degree or two before second crack (as I've found most PNG beans seem to handle slightly lighter roasts without puckering the lips!).
    Sampled as a doppio straight out of the roaster and got somewhere between the PNG Mt Ambra (sprightly and zingy) and the PNG Waghi (smooth and creamy). So a medium acidity with a light & creamy mouthfeel and good crema. So lots of potential!
    As it rests I'll report back on flavour development.

    We consumed loads of this great coffee when we were living in PNG, never had an ordinary one. Mostly brewed as a filter coffee from a medium roast. Always made a delightful cup...
    Well worth experimenting with lighter roast profiles.

    As a medium roast this is delicious. Reminds me of swiss milk chocolate in the finish, some nutiness at the start. Had pleasant mild zingy acidity, very light at the roast level I took it to, ~12mins and 218c on the Aillio Bullet. Cracking in milk and black.
