    New Guinea Sihereni AX - $9.50/kg*

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    It has bean a while (bad pun) since we have had a great PNG coffee. Its a region that many of us CSrs enjoy cupping from and the offering this month is called ‘Sihereni AX’. It is sun dried and grown at 3500ft in the Sihereni estate.

    Alan Frew (from coffeeco.com.au) said in his newsletter late last year: "This is probably the best PNG coffee I have ever tasted". So if you can roast it half as good as Alan can then you should enjoy it too!

    New Guinea Sihereni AX - $9.50/kg*


    [hr]
    * plus total order weight freight options
    • 3kg Express Postpack $10
    • 5kg Fastway Courier $10 (++ to available areas)


    [hr]
    The required "fine print" ;)
    [hr]
    ++ Check the Fastway locator for availability to your area. Select Geelong as the "local", put your postcode and 5kg as the weight. If you see the satchel option then you can use the Fastway courier service. You will need to supply a business address to ensure someone is there to accept the delivery. http://tinyurl.com/apl9f

    Please note: should we fail to fill a full bag (or multiples of full bags) then we reserve the right to cancel votes.

    As always with CoffeeSnobs polls, first-in best dressed.

    If this is your first CoffeeSnobs order (or your details have changed) please email the below information to: polls@CoffeeSnobs.com.au and then we will have the correct details for invoicing at the end of the polls. Fail to do so and your vote will be cancelled and your coffee offered to someone who missed-out.


    CoffeeSnobs Name:
    Real Name:
    Preferred name on the receipt:
    Email address for invoice:
    Delivery Address:
    Phone (MB or BH):


    Note: the postal address should be somewhere that is attended during the day to avoid the delivery getting "carded" and you having to pick it up at a local post office or depot. Work, pub, local milkbar, grandmas house all make sense.

    Tastes like chicken? :)

    I found this one to be unlike any other PNG I have tried and in a blind taste test would have guessed it was similar to the very good Guatemalan Volcan De Oro or the Peru Grace we had last year (from memory, not that I cupped side by side).

    The big aroma closely matches the big flavour (which is unusual) and the aftertaste lingered nicely. I have little doubt that this will become PNG that we judge others by in future.

    All this best coffee ever talk has gotten me all panicky... :-/
    Maybe I need more?
    What if it is the best PNG Ive ever tasted and I cant get more?

    Andy can you cancel my 2.5kg vote so I can get 5kg? Is there plenty left? I dont want to trade my 2.5kg for 0kg
    I might as well use up my 5kg postage pack.

    Look what youve gone and done Mal *:)

    Well as I always say to my SO: "Its cheaper than a drug habit". *;D

    Ok, maybe caffiene is a drug but at least its a cheap drug habit and I cant get arrested if I strap it to my body in Bali ;). Also curse your marketing division Andy because for some reason I felt compulsed to buy a couple of kilos.
