This coffee varies from the lower altitude to higher altitude parchments collected from small farmers and some Plantation A grades. Wet processed and sorted to remove most defects but it rather has inconsistent bean sizes.


The Okapa region is a picturesque area of the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea where plentiful rain and rich volcanic soils provide ideal growing conditions for coffee. Coffee is the number one cash crop in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.
Over 2 million people (40% of the country's total population) depend both directly and indirectly on money earned from coffee to purchase household, pay children's school fees, provide clothing and medicines and take care of cultural obligations.
Because of the remoteness, the coffee must be picked up by airplanes on grass landing strips, or for those lucky enough to have road access, it must be trucked to the nearest town for processing.

Cheap and cheerful, easy to roast

Great value for money. Easy to roast in my popcorn maker. Has nice clear loud pops - easy to tell when first crack starts and finishes. I roasted to a little after first crack had finished.

As a doppio espresso it has a lovely body, balanced acidity and flavours of orange, caramel, green apple and honey with a hint of chocolate.

It also adds a nice lift when blended with the Mexican decaf for a tasty but not-so-buzzy brew.

How can you go wrong when coffee is grown in these conditions.
That good it could be your house blend. If your after max choc, fruity flavours look no further. Beautiful body. Ideal to drink at 5 days old.
I'm excited.
