Sigri Estate coffee is grown at over 5000 feet elevation. The estate considers soil and water conservation as a priority and is bird and eco-friendly, providing a habitat for more than 90 species of birds.
Sigri Peaberry specifically is a washed Arabica coffee that has undergone a rigorous wet factory process. Quality control begins in the field; cherries are hand-picked and carefully checked for uniformity, and then undergo a multi-step processing, grading, and sorting process. These specially processed "Kula" coffees are exclusive to our partners at Benchmark Coffee Traders, and the result is one of the cleanest PNG coffees being produced today.
And we can attest to the final cup result! This coffee boasts a full body with malic notes of applesauce and pear, cinnamon, honey, and Brazil nut.
