PAPUA NEW GUINEA – CARPENTER ESTATES – SIGRI A/X HIGHLANDS
Hill Tree Roastery LLC
The highlands of Papua New Guinea are where all the good beans come from – Sigri is on a bit of the easterly edge of the highlands and maintains a true estate.
A very surprisingly nice cup that is pretty different from the Estate coffees, one can see the wilder plants and strains really shine. A little lighter bodied than most PNGs it has some fantastic floral/caramel notes and balance. A bit brighter but by no means a high acidity coffee, gives it almost a Central American spin at the lighter roast points. Darker roast points one can see a bit more classic PNG, bakers chocolate and spice will be the darker roast tones with no hint of acidity.
