Roaster's Notes

Papua New Guinea is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, north of the northern tip of Great Barrier Reef. The island’s active volcanoes have built rich soils that produce distinctive coffees. This distinctive single-origin seasonal coffee is tea-like, with notes of sweet citrus and brown sugar.

The coffee is grown organically by Namura/Timuza Coffee Cooperative in the Eastern Highlands Province, which sits at the base of long Papuan Peninsula, known as the Bird’s Tail. The 200 members of this cooperative are small-holder farmers of the Kamano tribal group, located southwest of Kainantu in the hamlets surrounding Namura town. The average farm size is 1.4 hectares and co-op members receive training and assistance in financial management, gender quality and coffee production.

A great deal of care goes into producing this coffee. The Arusha, Mundo Novo, and Typica coffee cherries are selectively harvested by the co-op’s farmers then manually pulped, fermented in traditional bilum bags, washed, and fully sun-dried.  In 2016, their coffee placed first in the national cupping competition.
