Single Origin Coffee
Coffee Roasters are often posed the question, “what is the best bean?” There is no single answer to this question and it is the question most dreaded by coffee roasters as the second most difficult to recommending a coffee.
The answer depends upon brew method, water quality and one’s own palette; both issues are prone to numerous variables in extraction and preferences.
Taking a few assumptions and constrain the challenge by taking into consideration the criteria of bean selection, Arabica or Robusta must appeal to the broad majority of coffee drinkers. To this, add the constraint with beverages that are milk based espresso. Who knows what the average coffee drinker likes?
To describe good coffee it has to have body, reasonably bright or higher in acid, rich classic flavour, sweet and clean finish. These seem to be the recurring themes that customers describe their ideal cup.
The influence of fruit in a cup may not be as well known by coffee drinkers today. However they are starting to discover this character just as they did with wine many years ago. Most coffee drinkers will describe smooth, rich, chocolate and sweet as their preferences without delving much further.
Fruit is a very interesting factor we can, however say that African's typically posses more intense fruit character in the cup. Fruit can be found in all quality beans depending upon the processing method and roast depth. Based on what is refered to as "feedback" when serving people single origins they may not have tried previously, a good PNG or Colombian will always have the greatest chance of winning their hearts and minds.
The Australian palette has grown up over the last 30 years with PNG and Colombian coffees, but it's generally been the PNG and Colombian components in a cafe blend that create that rich, smooth, rounded flavour profile.
It is often said that PNG's and some Colombians offer up beans that have potential to cover more of the flavour wheel than many other origins - hitting various segments of the wheel without being either overly extreme or diminishingly subtle. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffees are also in this category, however, the higher cost and limited availability of authentic JBM's tend to restrict their appeal to only those well informed and well cashed-up.
So, there you have it - quality PNG's and Colombians are a safe bet if you are seeking to create a cup that appeals to the general coffee drinker.
