This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Dillanos Coffee Roasters will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the Papua New Guinea brought to you by Dillanos Coffee Roasters. Grown in the remote Mt. Jabara region by villagers with a long heritage and tradition of coffee production, Dillanos' Papua New Guinea's deep characteristics stand out in the cup. This cup is complex, with caramel sweetness and herbal notes complemented by subtle dark fruit notes.
Decent coffee - but DARK, was really surprised to see the telltale shine on the beans when I opened the bag. Great for those dark roast drinkers who want a bit more nuance but beware if you consider yourself a “light” roast person.
Great with Aeropress Lattes. Loved the complexity. I was skeptical when I read the roaster's notes about hints of raisin but this ended up being a delicious roast.
I liked this one - not sure how to describe exactly why, but it was easy to drink when not thinking about it, and had some interesting notes to discover when thinking about it.
Great coffee! Hints of chocolate milk, caramel, with a nice touch of sweetness. Used an aeropress as my main brewing method,
I love the complexity of this coffee. It has an earthy aftertaste that makes it delightful. I usually reserve ratings until I've tried it in a french press, but I can already tell this is one of my favorites.
Liked it a lot. I wouldn't have picked it based on the description but it was a good cup of coffee.
a little too herbal for my taste
Taste's like coffee
Outstanding. We loved this one!
I really enjoyed this one, great dark undertones.
a delicious morning coffee. Different than what I normally drink. The undertones of caramel/molasses was great.
great, complex flavor
This is my favorite of the coffees I have received thus far. The caramel notes really come through.
Having tried a few different types & brands I keep returning to this one. Great balance of chocolatey & complex. Love.
I and my family enjoyed this coffee a lot. Flavorful without being bitter.
This is revised. After a couple of days drinking this, I like it quite a bit. I tend to like coffees with a bit more body, but this had a great overall balance.
subtle fruit notes, nice introduction to single origin
Did not like it. I specifically asked for medium to dark roast with no hint of fruit. Completely mismatched to what I requested.
Tasted great in the chemex, not so much in the cold brew. Definitely complex.
Weak tasting. Prefer something stronger with more body
Mr. & Mrs.
It’s good, I prefer a little bit more floral flavor. It’s outside my comfort zone which is also a good thing.
Bill & Linda
I like it very much. It’s just bold enough for my morning mug.
I've very much enjoyed this so far. The sweetness and the fruit tones make a great flavor combination.
Would prefer something a little bit darker
Dan and Judy
This coffee is too weak for us. We enjoy strong/bold coffees and would like to change our preferences for future shipments.
I love it!
I found this coffee lacking complexity, but not in a bad way. It was smooth and very balanced. The flavor profiles were strong enough to keep it from being boring, but were more subtle than I prefer. Perfect for when you aren’t looking for anything in particular, but just want a really good cup of coffee.
To dark for my taste. Low body
Complex flavors. Slightly bitter finish with both drip coffee and espresso. Although, pretty delicious when you add milk to either!
If I have to be picky, I'd say about the only thing missing for me was a creamier mouth feel and a bit more sweetness. I may also just have an unsophisticated palate. :)
Not strong enough
Not a true 3.0 but definitely not a 4.
This is a very smooth coffee. I really like it. I generally prefer a stronger tasting coffee, but if I use the french press, and make it strong, it is a very nice cup. I generally have been drinking darker roasts, but I really like not tasting the burnt flavor from roasting, and being able to taste the bean in this coffee/roast.
I thought it was mostly bland and flavorless. Wasn't bad by any stretch, but it really didn't excite me at all. Yeah, I get excited about coffee because I'm a nerd.
Great complex flavor
Good smooth not acidy herbal ligh wash
a little on the light side, but I still liked it! wouldn't want to go lighter/more acidic than this though
Really enjoyed this one! Good aroma, not too heavy mouth feel, with light notes of fruit and that carmelly sweetness. Maybe a bit too herbal in the taste for me though. Enjoy those single-origin roasts.
I have never had a coffee this interesting.
I really liked this coffee! More flavor than dark roast, but not too fruity like some light toast.
A little too light in flavor for my tastes, but not bad overall.
Jon & Leslie
excellent balance between depth and "brightness"
Drinking a cup right now that was ground a few days prior, so I’m not getting the full impact of the bean. That said, it is a very smooth roast and those dark caramel notes are forward enough to provide some interest but not over powering. I’m not getting much of the fruity notes, and overall the coffee lacks some power. All in all, a very solid cup of coffee. Good for an every day kind of cup.
A lighter roast than I prefer.
This coffee has been giving me nightmarish acid reflux. DCR coffee has not been my friend in general
It was darker than I'd expect for a light-medium roast. It had a very subtle aroma, and the front wasn't great, but it had a smooth finish.
Great cup of coffee! The smell of caramel is very strong in the cup. Smooth and rich.
Liked this one much more than the first one! Smooth and delicious
I enjoyed it very much. I am comparing it to the Kenya AA I normally drink and I felt this coffee lacked some of the nuance I taste in that. It seemed to have a rather straightforward flavor. It could be just me failing to pick out the complex flavors though. Nevertheless, it made a good cup of coffee.
Really like the flavor. I can really taste the caramel. The flavors are very interesting. We made our first batch of coffee in the French press, seriously great cup of coffee!
Raisin and sweetness permeate the beans itself. The offer itself is a bit darker with slight bitterness. I can taste the caramel and also a bit of tobacco. Good as a dark, but still mild coffee.
Bitter, unpleasant in French press
Good, like the earthiness and acidity but not a very strong coffee. Find myself using way more grounds than I normally would to make a good flavorful cup of coffee
Subtle flavor, not acidic
Love it. It tastes amazing.
Pretty good, not a huge fan of the raisin notes
I didn't love it. Thought it was a bit sharp (not sure if that helps) and strangely strong. But, it was fun to try!
A little bright
I'm sure this is good coffee, but it struck me as having no taste, and someone else in our family said the same thing before I expressed that opinion. It may be that it does have taste, but it's just not one we're used to. I'm definitely not a light roast palate in either case and this is medium-light. Anyway, we only made it once and no one has really wanted to brew it again. I'm going to see if my father-in-law likes it.
hoping for something a bit more "richer" and "deeper." it tasted a little bitter.
Very middle of the road as far as flavor. Not too rich and not too acidic
Slightly more bitter than expected. I was hoping for more fruity notes. Counter Culture, Blue Bottle and Four Barrel are my favorites. This tasted a little herbal
First impression was that it taste very plain and flat to me. I brewed it twice, the 2nd time with less water to see if the flavors would stand out more, still the same result. Is there a particular brew method that is best for this coffee? I'm using a Chemex.
On the plus side, I like the chocolatey notes and the fact that it doesn't taste burnt. Perhaps I just want something that pops more, with more exciting notes and flavors - I'm willing to experiment here.
Definitely taste the caramel and hints of dried fruit aftertaste. Made a well balanced cup and got smoother as it cooled. I tend to be more of a berry flavor note but was a good different
I loved this coffee. Right out the gate you guys are beating expectations. I love the richness of this medium roast which doesn't overpower the complex sugars but also doesn't deliver the acid tang of lighter roasts. Definitely tasting the caramel, which is maybe more of a dried fruit component, like dates or prunes. There's also a pretty distinct earthy or grassy flavor on the back end of the cup. This seems to become more prevalent as the coffee cools.
Medium light was new for us. Seemed less flavorful than a light, but the lower acidity was nice. We just got a Behmor drip brewer and are excited to try more options from mistobox!
A little too dark a roast for me. I think the coffee itself was fine in it's own right just not my style.
Did not enjoy this coffee. Couldn’t seem to dial it in and didn’t have a taste.
Definitely good coffee but not the best pourover I've had. Beans tasted a little old although recently roasted, some of the flavors weren't as poignant as hoped.
It was a bit light. I would not order again.
I’m not fond of this coffee. I can taste and smell something that I don’t like, but I’m not sure how to describe it.
Good, maybe a little weak or I just haven’t figured my grinder and aero press out yet.
Ok. Nothing special. Good aroma. The tastes were too subtle.
We like really strong dark coffee. This had an interesting earthy flavor, but was on the light side for us
I normally drink coffee with cream and sugar. Doing that with this overwhelms the flavor of the coffee. It does taste fine by itself, but I'd prefer something a bit darker for the next bag.
I was very happy with this coffee! I love that it has a slightly sweet taste and not acidic. I was unsure what roast level I would like but now I think a medium roast is just what I’m looking for.
Very nice. Smooth, caramel/chocolate notes. I really liked it.
I am notoriously unfussy about my coffee, and am just beginning to grind my own beans and try my hand at French press coffee. I thought this was great, with a nice full flavor that had almost fruity elements. No detectable bitterness, which I liked.
Really great first selection. Not too light, not too dark. I am enjoying!!
I never quite mastered how to brew it perfectly I don't think.
Fantastic, but a bit less versatile than I'd prefer. Great taste, but hard to tease out all the nuance.
I'm pretty opposed to any coffee involving fruity notes or flavors, but this coffee wasn't bad. It has a sour taste to it that I'm not really fond of. The roast was little on the light side, I typically go for a medium-dark roast with a bolder flavor.
Really enjoyed this blend! not too acidic and creamy. I can also taste the caramel.
Nothing particularly interesting in this one, although not a bad cup of coffee. Blackberry cobbler and general fruit flavors. Somewhat forgettable - not my favorite.
Excellent coffee! I liked much better than the Anodyne and better than Intelligentsia.
Complex but a very approachable cup of coffee. The stone fruit backbone was highlighted by a rich chocolate and caramel flavor. Our favorite of the selections sent to us so far.
I thought it was smooth. I might like it a little darker if possible. I like the caramel herbal maybe not so fruity. Do you have something that might be caramel, chocolatey and coconut? I will trust your recommendation. Overall I like the coffee that you chose for me. Thank you
Enjoyed this coffee
Its ok - i prefer a bold coffee with more of a rich, chocolate / sweet aroma and flavor
ok. prefers a little darker roast.
Hearty coffee without too much acid or bitterness. No notes particularly jump out, but a very tasty brew!
A really nice crisp taste.
My favorite coffee I have received from here.
Not the best flavor profile and tasted darker than described
Did not enjoy as much as first coffee. Roast was too light and taste was not bold enough
Complexity diminished after 3rd day. Best as a Gibraltar.
I found the Dilanos Coffee Roasters Papua New Guinea to be too bland for me. Intelligentsia is the coffee company I buy the most of and I order very different coffees from them. I like particularly their African coffees. What I like most about Intelligentsia coffee is that no matter what coffee I buy, I taste flavors very clearly -- whether it is grapefruit, or leather or tobacco or many other flavors. With the Dilanos Papua New Guinea, there is nothing that stands out in terms of flavor. It's not that I like a particular flavor. I like many different kinds but I want to taste them, both clearly and subtlely. Hope this helps to understand my coffee palate.
Keep this one in the regular rotation. I generally prefer darker roasts, but this one reminded me of some Sumatra Mandheling I used to get from a local roaster.
My guess is the batch received wasn't too fresh. I enjoyed single origin PNG beans many times in the past and the known good and gentle tastes were recognizable here. There is something missing though, judging by smelling the beans and tasting the coffee, my only guess would be that it was roasted a too long while ago, more than 2 weeks. I might be wrong,
Loved this! Strong but not bitter, lots of flavor.
The flavor notes of caramel and the aftertaste of dark chocolate were luscious.
not a fan
Bold, low acid, flavorful.
Liked this coffee better than our first mailing. Seems rich and like the earthiness. Could taste the raisin undertone which was surprisingly nice although I wouldn't want it any fruiter. Overall very good coffee.
I was not as much of a fan of the fruity notes of this coffee. I think I like more nutty flavors.
Did not receive Jan order
Prefer a darker roast and not a fan of the earthy aftertaste.
Not bad but brewed a little bit too acidic and fruit-y for me. Too light of a roast for me.
I liked it as a drip. good flavor.
Would like something a little darker. Tasty, enjoyed.
I enjoyed the first coffee I was sent more than this one. This one did not wow me and I can't quite put my finger on why, but the coffee sort of tasted underextracted no matter how I ground/brewed it. Maybe it wasn't full bodied enough? But I don't necessarily need a dark roast or chocolatey notes to enjoy a coffee. Maybe medium-light was too light a roast, though. I don't remember the last Papua New Guinea I've had so it might have been getting used to that too.
Very smooth and great depth
I found the blend to be complex and full flavor of medium boldness.
it's nice! i think i prefer orange notes to caramel.
We didn't like this as much as the Deep Space Blend from Good Folks. It had what seemed like a flowery aftertaste, not as pleasant as that chocolatey or carmel smoothness. Maybe we like darker roasts more than we thought!
Solid, would drink this often. But it doesn't have anything out of the ordinary or interesting. Not that it's bad, just not *special*.
Kim & Dave
Just the way we like it! Not overbearing and goes down so smooth.
absolutely love it
It was a little too “fruity”. Was nice and smooth which I prefer. Also prefer a darker roast. Thanks, Mark
Liked it much better than the first one - enjoyed the roast level - liked the fruitiness - would like slightly bolder taste.
I've been pretty heavily drawn towards PNG coffees since visiting Hub Coffee Roasters in Reno, NV in 2015. Their riverside cafe still stands as one of the most memorable coffee shop experiences of my life, and their single origin PNG Kunjin on espresso still holds a unicorn-like status for me.
That being said, I've only gotten the chance so far to brew this PNG from Dillanos on V60 so far, but it is stunning. It's got the killer body that I've come to expect and lust for in a PNG with some subtle sweetness that leads to a fully herbaceous and slightly earthy finish. Excited to put this through the Aeropress later and may have to take this into work and pull some on a proper espresso machine, as I think it'll be balance enough to shine as a shot. AMAZING PICK! THANK YOU!
Nice as both pourover (Chemex) and Aeropress. Complex, with sweetness, earthiness, acidity. It's the second Papua New Guinea coffee we've had and we've really liked both.
Smooth and flavorful!
Tasted exactly as it smelled--carmely, rich and very tasty, I'd never heard of this brand but would definitely buy again.
Definitely got some sweetness from the caramel. A little floral sometimes but i might be mistaking that for the herbal. Overall it was pretty good.
Really light and not very flavorful.
I loved it! Good smell to it, a nice mild and smooth taste!
Very good. Much better than first shipment. Papua New Guinea more in keeping with my preference for a bolder coffee
This one seemed over-roasted. It muddied the flavor profile and was very difficult to draw out any complexity. Not sure if it was just this batch. I initially used pour-over but quickly realized it was better suited for immersion brew method. It was ok with a French Press or Clever, but far less conducive with a v60 and the like. Definitely not Medium-Light as the coffee indicates on the packaging.
This was very good. I have never had a coffee from this area and was very excited to try it. I typically enjoy more fruity, citrus, and earthy flavors in my coffee. This one had a more chocolate, fudge, and heavier flavor to it. While I enjoyed the coffee I have preferred the other 2 coffees that I tried much more.
Like the texture, very round. Twiggy/forest floor character, baking spices in the finish. There's a roasty quality that comes across as burnt on the finish that I don't love, but good overall.
Awesome earthiness and flavor. If it were a pinch muddier, this would be a 5. Great coffee!
I liked the velvety feel and complex flavor of this coffee. It didn't taste too roasted and it seemed like I could taste the caramel complexity. Good!
On the darker side, There's a lot going on here that I'm not experienced enough to pick out. Full bodied? Sure. The caramel background is nice. Smelled fruity in the bag, but I don't think that taste made it into the cup. I may have waited too long to really dig into it.
I preferred the first coffee. Too roasty for my preference.
Prepared as French Press. Found the cup to be inconsistent. When I missed, it was a fine cup. When I hit, herbal notes were very enjoyable and easy to find. Could not find the caramel, but if you can dial this one in, its still a wonderful cup.
Unique aroma and unusual, intricate flavor. I'm really enjoying this coffee. This is the kind of new coffee experience I hoped for with this subscription.
Would prefer something a little more bold and flavorful. This seemed like a classic breakfast blend coffee.
Finally a coffee we truly enjoyed from Mistobox. Didn't hurt that it came from Dillanos!
Mild and Subtle.
David and Cortney
The roast was darker than I would prefer. Also, there was no roasting date which seemed odd.
Straightforward but delicious. Excellent mouth feel and balanced caramel
not good for us at all -- too sweet
Really good, it's got a richer flavor than the Guatemala I had previously. Love.
Pretty good coffee overall. Not very strong, but it has a nice smooth feel to it.
Missing the bite i look for in a brew, but made a good cup of coffee
Very nice and smooth.
Possibly the best coffee I've ever had...and I normally don't even like light/med light roast coffee. It brews beautifully in an aeropress, and makes a rich and full-bodied cup of coffee. Will definitely buy again.
Loved it, flavorful, rich, strong.
Initial taste is a bit weak, middle taste is okay but muddled, and the finish is too much like smoke or ash for my tastes.
Good medium to light roast with caramel and buttery notes. Not bitter or smoky and finishes clean. Great breakfast coffee, and good just about anytime.
Diana & Richard
We like this coffee, but for the next batch could we get something a bit stronger/bolder? Thanks!
This coffee has a smooth, yet flavorful taste. Perfect for breakfast.
this is a good coffee. little lighter than medium, and not strong on any flavor. it resembles more of a rich low acid flavor, and its got a great resemblance to its other of the same roasters.
It tastes great :)
Smelled freshly roasted. Taste is light the way I like it, but has a strong chemical-like taste. Not a fan.
Pretty strong, best in the aeropress.Hints of sweetness.
great in both espresso and pour over
Fresh, and with good but indistinct flavor. Good everyday cup.
