New coffee! Introducing our new Kabiufa Papua New Guinea. This lovely coffee is jammy with a sweet-tart acidity and tasting notes of mango, rose, and butterscotch. It’s also unusually clean for a PNG offering while still boasting the unique sweet spiciness (think cinnamon) that is typical of the island. Definitely a unique coffee that we consider a must-try!

About. Moses Venapo, an entrepreneurial producer in the Eastern Highlands, developed a new coffee model that offers local smallholder farmers better access to higher market prices as well as an option with higher-traceability. While most coffee in Kabiufa is delivered in parchment in small quantities to roadside delivery points, Moses established a cherry-buying facility as well as installed a wet mill in his back yard in order to have more control over the purchasing and processing. The coffee is bought in cherry (at a significant premium to the general market), and sorted carefully, providing farmers with feedback about best practices in picking. This new project currently serves around 50 smallholder farmers within Moses’ village and the neighboring villages. And based on the cup quality and ingenuity of the venture, we see a lot of promise in this project for years to come.
