Papua New Guinea Kabiufa Microlot – 10 oz
This coffee comes from 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 and installed a wet mill in his back yard in order to have more control over purchasing and processing. The coffee cherry is bought at a significant premium to the general market and sorted carefully, providing farmers with feedback about best practices in picking. This project serves around 50 smallholders within Moses’ village and the neighboring villages.
Cupping Notes: Juicy, sweet and tart with chocolate, rich caramelized sugar, basil, grapefruit and lemon flavors.
