ABOUT THE COFFEE
The beans are single sourced and organically grown in small village based in the Eastern Highlands.
Only tree ripened cherries are handpicked and transported to a processing facility in Goroka, the provincial capital. There , they are carefully fermented after removal of the skin of the cherry. A strictly controlled sun-drying operation follows to achieve an optimal moisture content 10 per cent. Next, the inner hull is removed exposing the green bean. The final step is a meticulous sorting process to ensure quality and consistency before packaging and shipping.
This carefully designed quality control procedure retains the naturally occurring acid levels and highlights the intense and complex flavoursome body of this organically grown coffee. Our process preserves all of the inherent rich chocolate nutty and caramel undertones.
