This is a Western Highlands province coffee, down in the Jiwaka Province. Six hundred farmers contributed and it was processed at the Kagamuga mill.
Natural processed coffees are not normal in Papua New Guinea. You need to roast it lightly and just barely out of the first cracks. It tastes like grape jelly, and then almost turns into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with some rye notes and nutty notes as you keep drinking it.
I don't have much experience with natural processed Papua New Guinea coffees to know if this one is normal or strange. It's certainly fun to try! When we tasted it, we knew it was unique enough we needed to bring it in for something different.
