For a long time, we have had a fond appreciation for coffees coming out of Papua New Guinea. These coffees tend to have unique and interesting flavor profiles, but have not historically been very prominent in the specialty coffee world. This one in particular is a rare treat because it is the first time that we have seen a natural-processed coffee from this country. We were only able to get a small amount of it, so it won't be around as long as our typical offerings are, but we are very excited to be able to include it on our menu! Our importer friends have the following to say about the coffee and the mill from which it comes:
"This coffee comes to us from the Kagamuga Dry Mill, located in the Jikawa province of Papua New Guinea. It is a blend of coffee purchased in cherry from about 1500 multiple smallholders located in the Kindeng and Arufa municipalities. The average farm size of producers in this area is about 1-2 hectares, and the soil is generally sandy loam and loamy clay. For this coffee, ripe cherries are placed on raised beds and canvasses immediately after they are received at the dry mill. They are moved multiple times a day throughout the average 1-month drying process to ensure an even and uniform average moisture content across the lot. Once the coffee is adequately dried, it is placed into bags and stored in a cool and dry warehouse, hulled, milled, and prepped for export."
This coffee is a really wild flavor adventure! Look for big, complex, and incredibly sweet flavors of blackberry brandy, amaretto and strawberry jam.
All coffees are available in whole bean only.
