An amazing unique
coffee that has a natural brightness, but is surprisingly full bodied
with bold earthy tones and lingering notes of citrus and mango.
new coffee is from the Purosa region of the Okapa district in the
eastern highlands Papua New Guinea. Grown and processed by small
village growers whose main cash crop is coffee. Adhering to organic
and Fair trade guidelines has let them access a global market to
raise their standards of living. These growers support about 12,000
family members and, as interest grows, it is expected that a further
5,000 growers will sign up with the HOAC over the next few years.
