It is the most beautiful place on earth. It’s green, lush, rice paddies everywhere—giving it a sense of calmness. Traditional Tongkonan Houses cover the background with fascinating Toraja Patterns decorating the structures. Indonesian coffee has traditionally been processed with the Giling-Basah method, or wet-hulled like Sumatra.
NOTES: Sweet with lots of tangy tart fruit acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; lot of tropical fruit with toffee and apple flavors with an herbal aftertaste.
The anthropological history of PNG is fascinating, but this is a page about coffee, so: Germans and British colonized Papua New Guinea in the 19th century, with the Germans toward the north and Brits in the south, where they planted coffee in and around Port Moresby in order to sell it to the Australian market. In the 1920s, commercial coffee production was increased through the introduction of Typica coffee from Jamaica, a variety commonly known as Blue Mountain.
NOTES - Sweet and Savory with citric notes and a smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate and fruit with herbal afternotes.
The lowest and highest elevations in all of Africa, the floor of Lake Tanganyika (352 meters below sea level) and Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 meters above sea level) are both located in Tanzania. The Shangrila estate is located between these commanding landmarks, the coffee plants are cultivated on the rim of the Ngorongoro crater, which is the largest unbroken caldera in the world. More than 25,000 wild animals, including the largest population of lions, make their home within the crater walls.
Peaberries are a naturally occurring mutation of the coffee seed that forms a single, smaller, rounder unit rather than the two “flat beans” that typically sit face-to-face inside a coffee cherry. Somewhere between 5–12 percent of any yield can be expected to naturally develop peaberries. Peaberries are meticulously handpicked and separated from the harvest. The majority of the coffee exported from Tanzania is bought by Japanese roasters. Some swear by peaberries having a higher degree of potency that normal coffee does not.
