Enjoy a bag of The Laughing Pug’s Premium Whole Beans, and treat yourself to the best flavours of Papua New Guinea!

PNG Gold - (Single origin) Delicious premium coffee that displays amazing aroma and body with smooth creamy chocolate and dark chocolate flavours.

Certified Organic - (Single origin) Slow roasted to a medium brown colour which displays good acidity and body with caramel and nutty flavours.

Doggfather Blend - (Blend) The base of the blend is Papua New Gunea small holder grown coffee (the same as the PNG Gold). This gives the creamy almost chocolatey flavours along with a smooth, nice body.

Balancing this the Colombian Medellin adds in a little acidity and sweetness. The Sumatran Mandheling rounds out the blend with complex flavours, a very full body, and a long finish.

Putting it all together you have a blend that is well balanced. Smooth, yet flavourful with good body.

IL CAPO Specialty Blend - Origins: Brazil (Natural Barinas Farm/Pulp Natural blend), PNG Highlands (Washed Premium Small Holder), Indonesia (Semi Washed/Triple Picked) 

Il Capo showcases specialty grade Natural processed coffees from several farms in the Cerrado region of Brazil. Starting with the Barinas farm in Araxa, Cerrado de Minas. This farm is 200 years old, now in it's 7th generation and has modernised with a state of the art laboratory allowing precise classification of speciality grades. The Barinas coffee provides good body and a very clean, sweet cup, with a gentle citrus acidity & notes of cocoa. We then add in other natural processed Brazils to further promote dark chocolate and nut flavours in the blend. 

To these Brazil's we've added premium grade washed coffee from smallholders in the lush highlands of Papua New Guinea, which provides body and a creamy sweetness. Finally, to balance the blend out we have the heavy bodied and earthy, nutty flavours of a triple picked/semi-washed top grade Indonesian Mandheling.   

Il Capo, meaning "The Boss" in Italian, has been drum roasted to just slightly past Medium roast, giving a very smooth, clean dark chocolate and nutty taste. Sweet and with a lot of body this coffee is going to be smooth yet rich, perfect for either espresso or a more heavy hitting filter coffee.

I first discovered The Laughing Pug in Roma at the Big Rig of all places, had a cup and walked away with 1kg. It filled a gap that had been missing since my first roaster moved on and I hadn’t found a bean that I truly loved since. I have picked up twice from their warehouse and both times it was a very pleasant experience. Traveling to Melbourne over xmas I also bought some coffee bags for the road, and I was surprised that they were still fresh after 3 1/2 months.

Bloody delicious

Love these brands they are bloody delicious


After all the hype and the endless emails (someone please take the marketing department’s email account access away) I looked forward to trying the whole beans (Dogfather, and Capo) after finding the drip coffees okay (as one of my family commented: midway between proper coffee and instant coffee). Both the Dogfather and the Capo are described as ‘medium’ roasts, but one look at the dark, glossy (oily, even?) beans and a good sniff and that description went out the window. One dreads to imagine what the ‘dark’or heavy roast is like. Fortunately the taste was better - fitting the ‘medium’ roast description on the pack in both flavour and body. The fruit was evident as well, but nowhere near the best I’ve had. In fact, if I hadn’t endured the endless email promotions and origin story, and been served these coffees blind, I would have guessed a cheap supermarket blend (specifically a bulk purchase of Vittoria espresso beans I bought years ago that ranks as the worst coffee I’ve ever bought or drunk.

I should end on a positive note and say that I don’t mind the drip coffee and will probably use it for work or holidays when fresh coffee isn’t easy to get hold of and I don’t have my machine. (Japan has the best of this form of coffee, for my money.) As for the beans, I drink and try a lot of different coffees (mostly black, occasionally with milk) and I wonder if you need to have another look at the roasting side of your business to capture what I suspect are good quality beans.
And as for the endless saga of the origin story, just one email would have been enough.

Thanks for the opportunity to comment.
