2022 must be the year of amazing Indonesian naturals.
The Papua New Guinea Arufa is just as deeply fruited as the Java Riunggunung but has a fuller body and smoother mouthfeel to the Riunggunung's brighter winey fruit notes. Both are exceptional and delicious.
The Arufa brews up nice and sweet. Pops with cran-raspberry fruit juice, hoppy floral notes, citrus chocolate flavors in an encompassing smooth and heavy mouthfeel.

"This coffee comes to us from the Kagamuga Dry Mill, located in the Jikawa province of Papua New Guinea. It is a blend of coffee purchased in cherry from about 1500 multiple smallholders located in the Kindeng and Arufa municipalities. The average farm size of producers in this area is about 1-2 hectares, and the soil is generally sandy loam and loamy clay. For this coffee, ripe cherries are placed on raised beds and canvasses immediately after they are received at the dry mill. They are moved multiple times a day throughout the average 1-month drying process to ensure an even and uniform average moisture content across the lot. Once the coffee is adequately dried, it is placed into bags and stored in a cool and dry warehouse, hulled, milled, and prepped for export."
