  • About this Coffee: Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern part of the world's second largest island. It’s a country with a warm tropical climate located in the southwestern hemisphere. The Sigri Coffee Estate is located in the Waghi Valley, a fertile region of the western highlands. The medium density shade trees in the estate promote even ripening of the coffee cherries as well as a habitat for at least 90 species of birds. We value the opportunity to work with Benchmark Coffee Traders, who have direct ties to these coffee producers. Benchmark supports a strong social agenda that provides free housing, free healthcare, and free schooling to the coffee pickers and farmers who work tirelessly to help produce these unique coffees. Sigri Estate Kula Peaberry's exceptional quality is the result of many factors in the farming practices. “Kula” coffees are exclusive to Benchmark. The name refers to special processing guidelines.The coffee is dried on raised beds and goes through two rounds of color-sorting and two rounds of hand-sorting. This extra processing creates one of the cleanest PNG coffees. In the cup we taste notes of cantaloupe, raspberry, waffle cone.
