For the 1-2021 release, we’re roasting a peaberry coffee from the Korgua Estate in Papua New Guinea. This offering has a toffee sweetness, with hints of lemongrass, berry, and chocolate flavors.
The Korgua Estate resides in the Nebilyer District of Papua New Guinea. Korgua Estate sits at about 1400 meters above sea level and its trees are planted mostly in older Bourbon and Typica cultivars. This is a wet-processed coffee, meaning the coffee cherry and much of the fruit is stripped from the seed using depulping machinery, and then the seed, still covered in sticky mucilage, is submerged in water tanks where it ferments overnight, breaking down the remaining outer layer of fruit. This is a peaberry selection, meaning it consists of only the small, round beans, separated during dry milling on large vibrating tables. Peaberries occur in about 3% of every coffee tree’s yield and are a result of one seed embryo dying and the cherry only forming a single, round-shaped seed instead of two. The bean is denser, therefore, capable of producing a higher level of sugar caramelization during roasting and very sweet, fruited notes.
We have a very limited amount available for this release.
