Kabiufa - Papua New Guinea
Origin: Eastern Highlands, Papua New Guinea
Tasting Notes: Kiwi, Tamarind, Earthy
This coffee has a unique story from other offerings from Papua New Guinea: It is the initiative of Moses Venapo, an entrepreneurial producer in the Eastern Highlands, who wanted to offer local smallholders better access to higher market prices as well as a higher-traceability option. 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 backyard 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.
