The finest coffee in New Guinea comes from the Sigri estate, in the Waghi Valley of Papua New Guinea, where climate, soil and elevation combine to create ideal growing conditions. A coffee prized by connoisseurs, our Papua New Guinea Sigri is naturally sweet, with a fruity aroma, a spicy body, and clean flavor. This coffee has a medium roast and comes in 1lb bag of whole beans.
Profile: Full, rich body with hints of spice and a clean refreshing finish.
Place: Wahgi Valley in the Western Highland province of Papua New Guinea.
People: The farmers of Papua New Guinea still live very traditional lives and these ancient tribal cultures still thrive in the mountains and valleys of the highlands. Agriculture was invented independently here, and many farmers now include coffee among the crops they grow.
Process: Fully washed, sun dried and hand sorted, this coffee goes through a three-day fermentation process broken up every 24 hours for washing. The Sigri process, unlike those of other estates, follows this up by totally immersing the bean in water for one more day, producing a superior coffee.
Pairing: Apples, caramel, and almonds, walnut coffee cake, cheese cake.
