PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Papua New Guinea is a distinct coffee among the Indonesians, even though it doesn’t even have an entire island to call it’s own. Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island it shares with the Indonesian province of Irian Jaya (no organized coffee production originates from Irian Jaya). The small-farm “Coffee Gardens” have a unique wild note in the cup but are in no way as earthy as other Indonesian coffees such as Sumatra and Sulawesi. These small farms are often organized into coops that share wet-milling facilities and are Organic certified, The Plantation coffees are the larger farms and have the cleaner, more delicate and sophisticated cup character. While a lighter body than Java’s, good PNG has the delicate notes, complexity, and sometimes the acidity or brightness of the best Central Americans.
