About this coffee

Coffee story

Travel just north of Australia and you'll reach the second-largest island on the planet, New Guinea. Blessed with rich volcanic soils and perhaps the most ideal climate for growing coffee, the island is divided evenly between two territories — the Indonesian province of Irian Jaya on the west and the country of Papua New Guinea, where this coffee comes from, on the east.

The beans in this Peet's favorite were originally imported from Jamaica's Blue Mountain region in 1937, bringing with them the dawn of coffee cultivation in Papua New Guinea. Indo-Pacific conditions proved immensely favorable to Jamaican coffee, producing a complete, complex cup that recalls the old Blue Mountain style, before the influx of high-yield, less flavorful varietals. We think its broad, mellow flavors, aromatic complexity, and full body make it one of the world's absolute best.

One of my favorites -- I always bought it from my local Peets and I was disappointed when the local store stopped stocking it. I was happy that I could order it on-line so that I can keep my habit. I love it, if you have not tried it, do yourself a favor and order a pound.

Peets New Guinea Highlands has become my favorite coffee. I had tried a number of Peet's coffees from the shelves in my local supermarket, and ended up mixing them with other coffee's to find what I liked. Once I ordered coffee from Peets, and realized they had other coffees like New Guinea Highlands, I no longer had to blend my own flavor. The Supermarkets never have this excellent coffee flavor.

Smooth, rich and delicious, the low acidity and rich body of this coffee is unsurpassed, this is a great buy and is now one of my favorite Peet's offerings. Living in Arizona now, I have to order my coffee online, miss not having Peet's down the street.

New Guinea Highlands is consistently excellent. Smooth,deep, complex flavor with a subtle cocoa finish. It's delicious in the French press either on its own, or in 50/50 proportion with Peet's House blend for a little extra bite.
