I'm In Love With A Coffee Bean.

Post  Hammy on Tue 13 Mar 2012, 11:35 am

Heres a topic I bet no one has covered before. I have a good friend here on the " Rock " who works on freight ships that do the PNG area. He just came back from a stint and brought me back some coffee beans from Laos. It is called Dao coffee. I love you Grown in the soutern mountain plateau of Laos. Now I am by no means a coffee expert, but I know what I like and I have tried a few different types in my time. This is the most beautiful tasteing coffee that I have ever had. Period. Just the smell of the beans makes me go weak at the knees. I am dreading the day when I grind the last of the beans. Does anyone else have this kind of addiction to a certain coffee ?

Very Happy

Spent a bit of time in PNG in the 80's and 90's and loved a coffee bean called 'papuan gold' coffee.

I've tried Kopi Luwak as a friend bought some back from Indonesia as a gift. Taste was good. (You dont taste the digestive track which was rather nice of them to leave out..)
Did notice a huge hit caffeine after, well above any Melbourne double expresso, short mac, long black I've ever experienced. bounce

Hi Hammy, Google points us to Orchid Coffee Traders of S.A which import Dao Coffee beans from Laos if its the right stuff.
