Papua New Guinea - Organic - Medium Roast
*12oz. Compostable Bag*
Sweet and complex with notes of praline, cocoa and a hint of citrus.
The 703 smallholders in the Jimi River coffee network are among five of the most remote and isolated coffee communities in Papua New Guinea, where it takes a day’s walk to reach the nearest road. Together, they form an organic coffee grower group that focuses on bringing the best practices in social, environmental, and economic standards to their 787 coffee plots.
The farms in this network reach altitudes of 1600-1900masl, and 90% of the coffee is planted in the shade. All of the coffee grown in these plots is hand-picked, pulped, fermented, washed, sun-dried, and stored until they reach sizeable volumes. Afterwards, they are brought to the Produce Consolidation Storage Shed.
The group’s leadership manages quality control and facilitates bringing the coffee to market as a cooperative, adding value to the coffee and improving the livelihoods of their member producers in the long term.
