Coffee from Papua New Guinea
Less rich than neighbouring Indonesian coffees, Papua New Guinea produces coffee containing a lot of natural oils that provide a full body but are typically brighter with an exotic fruity aroma.

Papua New Guinea’s political turbulence and poor infrastructure is at odds with the fertile volcanic soil and tropical highland climate that make it a natural choice for coffee growing.
Though over 2 million people on the Oceanic island nation rely on the coffee industry for their income, violent hijackings and constant price instability have made PNG’s growth as a coffee origin challenging. Today, 20th century plantations have made way for smallholder farms, where there is a focus on higher quality, speciality grade processing at community mills but where traceability can prove challenging.
