Black Acres Coffee Papa New Guinea in REDUX Review [steadying, assuring]

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Black Acres Roastery
Papa New Guinea

ORIGIN: Papua New Guinea
PROCESS: Fully washed

BREW METHOD: Pour-over
INTENSITY: Mild

The reasoning behind this redux is a switch from French Press to Pour-over brewing. The original FP review can be read HERE. This 2d will not reference that 1t. You should read it anyway. It is superbly written. [On 2d thought & further sips, this is ::: very ::: much the same cuppa. Maybe just a couple/few edits here & there.]

NOTES:
Caramel | Jicama | Apple butter
Apple Butter | Peach | Jicama

You'll first notice the p/lush body, full af w/ peach fuzz tick. It's all about the feels, really. A happily sedate profile. Primaries: a slightly salted caramel toffee [PEACH] is out-front. Jicama [fogged a tick by cereal grain] moistens in that caramel & apple butter interim. The apple butter, the whispered of the three [heightened some here], its autumn spices [lowered] find rest on the long[moderate]-legged finish. You'll get [a] things here you won't get just any/everywhere.

Undertones are quite grainy with a talc feel rounded into smooth cushion. Farina cereal cooked in milk [Cheerios crumbs, say?] A bit of orange blossom honey brings sweet citrus pith on-board. Aroma showcases bigly that honey [pushed up & ahead by grains-covered peach]. Somewhere between the smell & the taste is a [hinted] buttery cedar. Complex, nuanced, & all that while being broad and still. This apparent juxtaposition leads to very attainable easily enjoyed intricacies. [steadying, assuring]

FINAL GRADE: B+
