Papua New Guinea Kindeng A/X
This is our first offering from Papua New Guinea and we are excited to share it with you! When we taste a coffee that hits the mark of personal enjoyment, we know we have our purchase locked in. The cup wrote us a note saying it tasted like toffee, ripe cantaloupe, and cinnamon stick and we agree.
