Papua New Guinea
Interesting acidity and high variety are defining qualities of Papua New Guinea coffees. The island is known for the mountainous topography and the incredible cultural diversity of thousands of indigenous groups. Due to a decentralize infrastructure, many New Guinea plantations are actually collections of traditional “coffee gardens”. These are small plots of as little as 20 plants grown alongside subsistence crops. With increased introduction of modern processing methods, these already incredible coffees continue to grow in quality and consistency.
Nebilyer Valley A
Coffee has been cultivated in the Nebilyer Valley for over 40 years, and the bulk of it originates from small holders. Previously, the valley has been strained because clans and tribes have been at war. However, with the addition of coffee cultivation, the region has become less hostile. This specific coffee is a product of a multitude of small holders’ crops originating in many different villages throughout the valley. The cherries produced by these small holders are taken to the Korgua wet factory and processed using the wet and sun drying methods.
