    Uh-oh! It's that woody-earthy smell again! Yes, if you've been following some of my other Hook Coffee reviews, you'll know that some of the pods have a rather off-putting smell I really couldn't get behind. While the smell is more muted here when compared to Choco Loco where I first reported this, I still found the drink primarily bitter, which I'm really not a fan of. Again, with apologies to Hook Coffee, this is a 1/5.

    A coffee originating from Papua New Guinea, this coffee is described by the manufacturer to have hints of dark chocolate and tropical stone fruit, with a smokey oolong aftertaste. The listed roast intensity is 8. Perhaps the "dark chocolate" notes can explain the bitterness, but I'm really not sure what the earthy note is.

More Details

Bean Source Country: Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea (PNG) specialty coffee is known for its complex flavor profile, with notes of tropical fruit, chocolate, and earthy tones. PNG coffee centers around Goroka in the Eastern Highlands and Mt. Hagen in the Western Highlands. Both areas have high altitudes and fertile soils.
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
