We are super excited with this new lot from Papua New Guinea. This is without a doubt the cleanest PNG coffee we’ve ever cupped, and it’s fully deserving of its Gold Label status. With a very bright, juicy sweetness reminiscent of raspberry and tart candy followed by the underlying boldness of cocoa powder or dark chocolate, this coffee delivers a relatively standard coffee flavor profile in a deliciously smooth cup.

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.

I'm sure that you've seen notes on our website about how 'We don't roast until you want it." or "Roasted Fresh After You Order", but have you thought about why and how we setup our business to do that?
