In August 2016, we trekked over to Mount Hagen in the eastern highlands of Papua New Guinea to check out the new home of Black Gold, Sigri Estate. It was a trip of a lifetime and we met some amazing and colourful characters. Our lasting impression of Papua New Guinea was the breath taking landscapes, the kind-hearted and warm people, and of course – phenomenal coffee. Sigri Estate is truly producing some of the best beans in all of Papua.Check out our video above to get a glimpse of our time in Papua New Guinea!
Origin: Papua New Guinea
Flavours: Sweet berry fruits, roasted nuts and chocolate sweetness
Brewing: Espresso and Filter (Aeropress + Plunger)
This high altitude, single origin Papua New Guinea Arabica is grown in the highland forests. Family
owned estates grow the original Jamaica Blue Mountain varieties that flourish under the shade of old forests. Blackgold is a beautiful even bean with a silky smooth body, chocolate sweetness, berry fruits and a hint of roasted
nut. A great brew any which way but a filter, stovetop or espresso will produce a stronger brew.
