Papua New Guinea – Sigri
|Roaster Location:||New Rochelle, New York|

Blind Assessment: Panelists described a clean-tasting, agreeable coffee that was perhaps too agreeable, low-key to a fault. "Good balance, but not much to balance," complained one panelist. "Nothing really to grab onto," wrote another. Finished well, with a hint of chocolate, and the cup seemed to strengthen in character a bit as it cooled.
Notes: A clean tasting, agreeable coffee, which was low key to a fault. Reviewed as a green coffee by the Cupping Board Sigri is a market name for one of Papua New Guinea 's best established and most distinguished estate coffees. Amcafé 's New York office was founded by Michael Glenister, who has become an influential leader in the international sphere of specialty coffee.
