We love coffees that surprise. Unique origins or varieties that blow you away on the cupping table. This is one of those.
Not because the cup was so expressive, but so clean.
Coffee has first been planted in Papua New Guinea in the late 19th century, but it was not until the 1920s, that it became a commercial product. Two mountain ranges runs through the country: the Bismarck Range and the Owen Stanley Range. Coffee is exclusively produced in the Bismarck Range, home of ancient volcanoes like Mount Hagen and Mount Giluwe. In the past, land selection for coffee production was not based on scientific principles, rather coffee gardens and estates were developed on what land became available. The volcanic soil in this area is very fertile, making it one of the biggest coffee cherry supply of Papua New Guinea. While smallholders dominate the industry and account for 95% of the coffee production of the country, our two lots from Lahamenegu are also sourced from blockholders and plantations. Red cherries are delivered to the Lahamenegu mill, owned and managed by PNG Coffee Exports,  which then sorts and processes them. The weather in Goroka being dried than in the mountains and at the coast, the dry parchment is kept until being shipped.
