Papua New Guinea - (Fair Trade, Organic)
If you enjoy Indonesian coffee, you're in luck because Papua New Guinea coffee beans' flavor profile is similar. New Guinea coffees are grown in volcanic soil, which produces beans that contain a lot of oil.
Unlike other coffee countries that have massive plantations or mountainous farmlands, most of the coffee from Papua New Guinea is small-lot, selectively grown coffee. Local farmers plant sometimes as little as 10-20 coffee plants, which is minute in comparison to Brazil’s massive coffee plots.
After the coffee beans are ready for harvest, they’re handpicked and wash-processed to separate the beans. Between the wet processing and the location, PNG coffee has a unique flavor profile that intrigues premium coffee drinkers. The local farmers take pride in their small batches of coffee, which is noticeable in the high-quality coffee beans they produce.
Papua New Guinea coffee has a distinct flavor profile, mostly due to the nutrient-dense soil. The flavor has a bright and citrusy bite, with floral notes and chocolate undertones to smooth it out. Coffee in surrounding regions has a deeper, more earthy taste, so the coffee from Papua New Guinea is a refreshing change. Farmers use the washing method to separate the beans from the coffee cherries, which also influences the result.
