Papau New Guinea-Peaberry Gold
NEW COFFEE from the Papau New Guinea Sigri Estate!
Another exciting coffee available!
THE LOCATION: All coffee bearing the Sigri name is grown at over 5000 feet elevation. Sigri considers soil and water conservation as a priority, and, the plantation is bird and eco-friendly. The plantation employs a medium density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees. This promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for at least 90 species of birds!
THE PROCESS: Sigri is a washed Arabica coffee and undergoes a rigorous wet factory process. Quality Control begins in the field; Cherry coffee is hand-picked and carefully checked for uniformity; it must be red and fully ripe which allows for the correct balance of sugar and acid within the cherry. This selected cherry is then pulped on the day of picking.
A fermentation process follows, a period of three days broken every 24 hours by washing – but unlike most other coffees, the Sigri process follows this by total immersion in water for a further day, which creates a superior coffee. Careful conditioning of 21 days is followed by hulling, grading, color sorting and finally hand sorting. This combined with rigorous quality control before packing produces the finest green bean for which Sigri is renowned.
THE TASTE PROFILE: Papua New Guinea Peaberry Gold-has a unique profile, it’s earthy undertone is blanketed with berry like sweetness, a syrupy body and vibrant acidity. Notes of dried pineapple, mulling spices, cacao nibs make for a fully balanced cup of coffee.
