Papupa New Guinea Arokara
Well lookee here! A PNG that's not a peaberry from us - what a shocker. Papua New Guinea and Tanzania are the two main Peaberry producers so we tend to lean on those two origins a bit for that but that doesnt mean they can't produce good quality coffee's. If you're not into Sumatran/indo coffees for much of the bad rep they get, and some of it is surely justified, then Papua New Guinea is generally the lone outlier. This is due to the processing being a washed rather than a general forrest floor drying that Sumatra and other origins do.
I like this coffee because it was really fresh landed. We picked it up a week after it arrived in December at the ports so if you're reading this in March it's still in that wow super fresh landed coffee zone. Generally it fades about 3-6 months in. Focusing solely on fresh landed crop is only part of the deal and not even the largest thing we should look at but overall you'll notice a bit of a lively cup. Generally a bit more fruity and clean which is par for the course with us and PNG as an origin.
