Papua New Guinea started producing coffee in the 1920s with seeds brought over from Jamaica. At first most coffee was grown on plantations, but now the majority of coffee in Papua New Guinea comes from individuals growing on small plots. This lot comes from a group of small-holding farmers in the small region of Kunjin who live off their land, growing food for their families and selling the small amount of coffee they grow to a central mill as a cash crop. Even so, we continue to see the quality of coffee from the country grow and this lot is a great example of what to look for in excellent PNG coffees.
