About This Coffee
Papua New Guinea is an island nation that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea. As is the case for many coffee-growing countries, the coffees grown in the Papua New Guinea highlands are the most popular, as the best coffees tend to grow at higher altitudes.
In PNG, though, these higher altitudes are also marked by an excellent climate for growing coffee, as well as very fertile volcanic soil, making those areas by far the most desirable growing regions. Coffee planting was introduced to the natives in the 1920s to 1930s.
From there it was a series of ups and downs, from boom times thanks to other coffee nations struggling, to struggles during global coffee price depressions. But through it all, the nation’s scattered and somewhat helter-skelter coffee industry has continued to produce some of the wildest, most exciting coffee the world has ever seen.
The 125-acre Sigri estate stands at 1,500 MASL and uses precisely managed shade trees to promote even coffee ripening, improved quality, and diversified wildlife habitat. The estate and those nearby are home to some 90 various species of birds, resulting in being awarded “bird-friendly” status.
We roast our PNG Girambin A to a medium roast level with a prolonged pre-development time to create a syrupy and mildly acidic taste profile for a balanced and comforting cup.
