Camano Island Coffee Roasters

Camano Island Coffee Roasters

Founded in 2000, Camano Island Coffee Roasters are located in Washington State and pride themselves on the following qualities:
  • Being an ethical producer of coffee using only USDA certified organic beans (no pesticides)
  • Shade grown (less acidity and caffeine)
  • Fair trade (coffee farmers are paid a fair price)
  • Using Arabica beans (higher quality beans).  

We were recently contacted by Camano Island Coffee Roasters to try their Papua New Guinea Medium Roast beans. Beans were provided by Camano Island Coffee Roasters with brewing performed at home using a French Press which in our opinion is one of the easiest ways of brewing coffee.

To ensure that we did not alter the flavour of the coffee in any way, we had our coffee black without any milk or sugar. Word of warning: the process in which we brewed our coffee (being the French Press) could be different to how others brew their coffee and as a result of this the coffee's flavour profile could differ. Based on our brewing, we (Mirko and a friend - a fellow coffee lover) noted the following:
  • Aroma: The coffee has a nice fruity aroma
  • Taste: A nice and light flavour, bright and clean. There was also some underlying sweet notes complimented by the low acidity (due to growing technique and bean type) 
  • The Roast: Medium roast, bringing the clean and fragrant characteristics of the coffee out. 

Camano Island Coffee Roasters have a number of different coffee bean options available for the coffee lover ranging from dark, medium to light roasts as well as decaf, roasters reserve (premium), coffee pods (for those without a grinder) and a number of coffee gift packs. All items can be purchases on Camano's website (here).
