We’re proud to offer this fresh harvest from the Jiwaka Province of Papua New Guinea. Coffee is their second-largest export and employs nearly half of the country’s population. With over 800 languages in Papua New Guinea, communication is a real barrier to widespread progress and innovation in the country. Thankfully, our partners are working diligently with locals to ensure that training is taking place and that business is being done ethically.

This rich, sweet coffee is hand-picked and processed at the Amuliba Estate in Banz. Shortly after the newly established independence of Papua New Guinea in 1975, Philip Kapal, leader of the Tsekaka Clan, took over ownership of the Amuliba Estate and still operates it to this day. The estate purchases coffee from local small-holder farmers and either processes the coffee for them or allows the farmers to maintain ownership over the coffee through the exporting process. This coffee is carried by its bright acidity and enveloped with a pleasant syrupy sweetness, making it a very smooth and easy-drinking coffee.  

Please Note: All coffee bean orders are roasted fresh and may take 24-48 hours before shipping.
