Papua New Guinea occupies the Eastern half of the island it shares with the Indonesian province of Irian (no sizable coffee production comes from Irian). There can be a huge range of cups from Papua New Guinea, and the so-called Plantation coffees represent the cleaner character of the coffee produced on the island... more like a good Central American than part of the Indonesian profile. This coffee is from Goroka but originates in the Eastern Highlands area toward Kainantu. WP means Water Process decaf, a direct contact method that uses water filtration to separate the caffeine from the coffee without using chemical solvents.
Decafs can be a bit odd in the aromatics, but the oddness disappears in the cup. That is true with the Papua New Guinea, a slight woody note in the dry fragrance, but it also has a sweet caramel scent. The wet aroma has maple notes, and some mild mulling spices. The cup flavors are in line with the aromatics; a nice caramel sweetness, apple and cinnamon/allspice notes. The body has a nice thick weight to it. It's not incredibly complex, but a nice, balanced coffee that is a good middle-ground crowd-pleaser.
