Papua New Guinea coffees are known for their complex acidity and bountiful variety due to cultural and topographical diversity––few plantations are large, and most happen to be small plots. Processing methods are constantly being updated to ensure the best coffee year after year.

This specific Arakara AA hails from the Arokara Cooperative, a partner of plantations in the Eastern Highlands of Papua, New Guinea. Recently, the plantations have been transferred to the original owners who believe in a chemical-free production process. The coffee’s cherry is hand-picked by the clan, immediately pulped, and fermented in cement vats for three days. Then, the coffee is washed with the Aru River’s water and sun-dried for seven to twelve days. The plantations hire up to 60 assistants to the clan cherry pickers––nearly 12,000 people depend on this process for income to support their families.

Cupping notes: Fruit and sweet floral aroma, dark chocolate, plum, earthy; creamy body, winy acidity.

Robert Denzler on June 2,2022 Roasted three Papa New Guinea beans to one minute after first crack on a Gene Cafe roaster. This is a medium plus roast, before the smoke starts. Set to roast at time of 10.4 minutes at a temperature of 455 degrees F. Of the three coffees, this is the best and we will be purchasing 10 pounds next week. Thanks for stocking this great coffee. This is a very smoothe coffee with a little bite. Being a Kenya drinker I like a little bite.. If you want a smoother coffee, I would recomend one of tne of the other Papa New Guinea choices.

Excellent flavor that worked well as a darker medium roast on my gas stove. To my ignorant palate it was smoothe, a bit chocolatey, and felt rich on my tongue. It paired well with soy for a latte.

james Our favorite so far. Been roasting for about 5 years and was buying expensive GESHA beans. This is as good if not better than the best gesha we have had.

Not the best PBG I've made. Wonderful aroma. Should be good for a blend.

Part of the sample pack and I used it for my first roast on my Hottop K2+ . So something of a learning experience. Even with that caveat, it made for a very decent cup in the morning. Roasted it just 10 seconds after the finish of 1C. Cupping notes (from my limited experience) were a decent body and low acidity. It had a hint of chocolate. After I’m through sampling the other single origin offers, I plan to get some more for blending. Overall if you haven’t tried this, its worth buying a half-pound sample for comparison. Cheers Davecx
