Papua New Guinea Sihereni

Profile:

This will be the first time in recent memory that we have offered a coffee from Papua New Guinea. We find the distinctive cup profile to be a perfect example of the best of what can come out of this island state.

This coffee is produced by the Sihereni Plantation in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The first coffee trees were planted in this area by an Australian entrepreneur in 1963, the farm changed ownership several times over the intervening four decades. In 2000 a local by the name of David Oromari, with a background in the coffee industry, purchased the plantation when it was in a state of complete disrepair. The previous owners had essentially abandoned the farm and when he visited the property he found yellowing and overgrown coffee trees. He reached out to community members and his family in order to clean up the plantation and rehabilitate the coffee trees. In return, David compensated those who helped by paying for the coffee cherry they harvested.

After several years of rehabilitating the coffee plantation, buying new coffee processing equipment, and making quality improvements on the farm, David saw his coffee become a tasty and marketable product. He began a partnership with an exporting company and used his background in coffee marketing to come up with a brand that would allow him to sell his coffee internationally. David maintains a commitment to innovation and re-thinking new ways to produce high quality coffee.

Cupping Notes:

A round and buttery cup characterized by an herbal quality and notes of melon and flowers with elegant acidity.
