The majority of coffee production in Papua New Guinea comes from smallholder farmers, each with around 1–2 hectares called “gardens” in which they grow small amounts of coffee and other subsistence crops. Less than 3% of the country is used for commercial agriculture, and forest makes up more than 63% of Papua New Guinea’s landscape. The vibe is: raw, tropical, remote, and unblemished.

This coffee was grown in the Western Highlands in the Kunjin region. After the coffee cherries are handpicked, farmers bring them to the Kindeng mill for sale. Cherries are bought, sorted for quality and grade, depulped, and fermented dry for 24 hours before being washed and dried on tarpaulins for three to six days.

We try to offer coffees from Indonesia, specifically PNG, as often as we can because of their unique, crowd-pleasing flavor profile and mellow, pleasant acidity. As the years go by, we've noticed that the quality of PNG coffee continues to increase. And the Kunjin is no exception.
