Nebilyer Valley is a growing region in the Western Highlands next to Waghi Valley. The mill processing this coffee is called Kuta, and both the both the mill and co-op are overseen by the same family so that the quality can be controlled.
The beans are largely made up of the heirloom Bourbon and Typica varietals grown at 4,000+ feet above sea level. These are the largest AA beans which have been sorted out from the rest of the crop.
This one is nice as a light roast -- get through the first cracks, but don't take it too much beyond that. This bean is really bright with lime and orange flavors. It is also herbal, with molasses and savory undertones. In slightly darker roasts there's a lot of cocoa as it cools. I roast it like a Kenya with a very short middle part of the roast in order to make it bright and acidic and really complex and interesting to drink. You can take it darker like other Indonesian coffees, but it gets boring at darker roasts.
