Papua New Guinea, often associated with Indonesian coffees, emerges as a distinctive origin in geographical, cultural and production terms. It distances itself significantly from Java or Sumatra, both in its geographical location and in its focus on coffee production. Unlike many Indonesian coffees, Papua New Guinea does not use wet parchment milling in its processing.

The coffee-growing regions of Papua New Guinea extend along a continuous mountain range, with the "Eastern Highlands" and "Western Highlands" being especially notable.

In the Western Highlands region, where Sigri Plantation is located, the central town is Mount Hagen, whose economy is strongly linked to coffee. This region enjoys a cool and temperate climate with rainfall throughout the year, creating ideal microclimatic conditions for coffee cultivation.

The Sigri Plantation, founded in 1969 by the Carpenter family, has become a leading producer of specialty coffees in Asia and Oceania. Committed to soil and water conservation, Sigri employs a medium-density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees to promote uniform ripening of cherries and provide habitat for more than 90 species of birds.

The Arusha varietal, a direct descendant of Bourbon and the Typica genetic base, is grown at an altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level, favoring slow maturation, generating a good amount of sugars that balance the acidity and provide exceptional complexity and aromatic intensity.

Sigri coffees are subjected to a rigorous processing process that begins in the field with the manual harvesting of the drupes at their optimal sugar level. Pulping is carried out that same day, followed by a three-day fermentation process interrupted by washing every 24 hours. Unlike other wet mill coffees, Sigri's process includes full immersion in water for an additional day, giving it a unique flavor profile. Finally, the beans are sun-dried on patios to further enhance their distinctive flavor.
