Tasting notes include a heavy body with flavors of raisin, cocoa and hints of melon, with a creamy body and sweet, tropical notes. This coffee is grown at an elevation of 5,300 feet in the northern part of the Eastern Highlands, in the Timuza/Namura region. This area is full of mountains and valleys, making it a perfect place to grow fantastic coffee. Some mountain areas reach over 12,000 feet elevation. Often, this coffee is referred to as PNG coffee. Our PNG Coffee is produced by a group of certified farmers that consist of 207 coffee families, who together farm 274 hectares.

The coffee is dried on raised beds—some of the only raised beds anywhere in PNG. The coffee is hand picked, hand pulped, washed in clean river water, dried in the sun and delivered as parchment to the receiving station, where it’s machine hulled and polished. The receiving station also has its own tiny warehouse. Because producers will travel quite a distance to deliver to the co-op, which appreciates and pays a premium for quality, it's building a little sleeping loft in a corner of the warehouse, so that producers who arrive late can stay the night before returning home.
The soil is loamy and rich with volcanic ash, the weather is hot and wet year round, and the coffee is shaded by Casuarina (a weepy evergreen), Albizia (also known as silk trees), Schzomeria (used for the interior of the Sydney Opera House) and Stemona (a family of vines). Coffee was established here in the 1930s, though commercial production dates to post World War II. The first plants were brought in by Lutheran missionaries, for their own consumption, and are said to be decedents of Blue Mountain plants.
