|Islands of PNG|
The magnificent and unique plantation wet-processed Papua New Guineas are acidity but balanced, with a variety of high-toned nuances, including flowers and citrus tones that often suggest grapefruit. The small-grower coffees are often a fin, fruity variation of the basic full-bodied, deep-toned sumantran/Sulawesian cup.

This coffee really jumps out on a table of other PNG coffees from the Western areas for it's sweet aromatics. The dry fragrance has slightly winey, ripe-fruit notes (quince jam, apple, pear). The wet aroma is a little less fruited, with a nice honey-on-toast scent. There are spice notes too; cinnamon and a little nutmeg.
The cup is really nice; red apple dominates when the coffee is hot, with the same cinnamon and nutmeg found in the aroma coming through clearly in the sapid flavor. The body is not too thick, but seems syrupy and pleasing.
The coffee finishes with sweet mulling spice notes, and a bit of orange peel. Dark roasts can be a little smokey in the roast taste: I prefer City to City+ roast, although the coffee appears a bit uneven and wrinkly in surface texture.

I must say that I really enjoyed this cup of coffee, cause its simply contains a stunning depth and volume. Its amazing to drink straight from the morning and its basically hard to find any time where a of PNG Sigri aren't enjoyable.
If i were to choose I would drink the PNG coffee without any secondary food, because its very saturating.
Hope you enjoyed this review.
