    Wahgi is a family favourite however stock is now critically low. Going to order some Ambra but always interested in others opinions.

    Here's Mt. Ambra @ 5 days' old. It's very nice. I haven't tried the Wahgi but I'd buy more of the Ambra in a second. It's great as pour over!

    Sorry Rolf, we only sell in AU.
    Too much paperwork and too big a freight bill to send overseas.

    Grab some next time you are in Australia or PNG
    (not much help I know)

    Mal, I had Sigri about 2.5 years' ago. It was out of a 60kg batch and about 14 days' old - CS8 or 9 - and covered in shiny, light oil. I ran 500g through the Ditting and enjoyed it over the next few days through the Hario.

    Sigri must have fallen somewhat over the past few years then.
    Nothing came close to it the last time I was able to get some AA from the estate...

    What's "generic PNG", by the way Chris? Never had any of that...

    Please excuse the Moccona jar: I picked a bunch up at the recycling centre (honest).

    Well gents, I roasted four batches of it and can't wait to sample it as it rests.

    I can say that (because in my excitement to roast the first batch I forgot to insert the chaff tray in the Behmor - doh!) it produced very little chaff. I took it to (1) just after FRC; (2) at 2C; (3) into 2C and (4) I was pushing buttons like Charlie Bucket in the Glass Elevator and opened the door on cool 5 seconds into 2C

    I'll bet the Mt Ambra wins that blind taste test EVERY time... this is PNG at a whole new level.

    Loving the Mt Ambra.

    Yep, I love the Sigri AA.

    Probably my all-time favourite PNG coffee when it can be sourced.

    I haven't tried the "PNG Mt Ambra A" as yet but going from Andy's notes, it sure sounds like a winner.
    With the Sigri AA though, I always stopped the roast just before 2nd-Crack started, just as the blue smoke began to make its presence known. Always seemed to get an ashy taste to it if I took it any further than this and has basically been my go-to profile for all new PNG bean varieties/crops, with tweaking coming into play afterwards, if necessary...

    Mal.
