    PNG Maroogype AAA

    Hi All

    I bought a green bean starterpack this month which included PNG Maroogype AAA. *I have searched here; the Beanbay Wiki site; Sweet Marias; and even Google, but cant find any information on these beans. * :-?

    I would appreciate anyone who has any info, or who has tried them letting me know what to expect. *;)

    Thanks - Carrie

    Even better that you try them and let others know what you thought!

    They are a great bean and quite rare in a AAA grade from PNG. HUGE beans when roasted and produce a nice even roast .

    You will start a fight here telling people that you got them in a starter pack though ;-)

    Enjoy em!

    Re: PNG Maragogype AAA

    Maragogype refers to the size of the bean.

    From what I have read, the term is now the accepted name for the specific mutation of the Arabica typica.
    It was first discovered in the Maragogype region of Brazil, hence the name of the variety.

    So, when you see the beans, they will usually be named by country (and possibly region/farm) and then the word maragogype.

    Apart from being BIG suckers, the flavours vary with crops from different places, the same as all other beans do, huge or not.

    I usually roast the PNG to just before second crack and get good results. Ive just been enjoying a Sigri done to this roast level and it has been amazing.

    Mmmm....

    Sigri, probably my all time favourite PNG bean but quite difficult to obtain a lot of the time as most (sometimes all) heads off to Japan. Always keep an eye out though...

    Good advice with the roast info. Ive never tried this Maragogype variety but pulling the roast just on the first few snaps of Second Crack (SC) is a good place to start. Have fun Carrie.... :)

    Thanks Vasanna,

    Great to hear how your roast went, I would love to hear how you find them when they are ready. *8-)

    I havent tried mine yet, Ive put 3 batches of other beans through the popper so far, overcooked the first time, second were a lot better, and Im going to sample last weekends roast tomorrow.

    It is such fun isnt it *:D

    Cheers - Carrie *:)
