This coffee comes from the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, where nearly 3,000 smallholder farmers are collected into a cooperative group overseen by the Highlands Organic Agriculture Cooperative. The group's objectives are to improve roadways and infrastructure in the region, support the 20 primary schools within the Purosa and Okapa areas by providing resource materials and desks, provide beds and mattresses for local medical centers, and support women's groups.
Papua New Guinea produces some of the finest coffees in the industry, and it is a miracle that it makes its way across the world to us. They often encounter huge obstacles such as lack of infrastructure, dirt roads, exporting issues, etc. However, they don't sacrifice in quality of their end product and often produce amazing coffees. Papua New Guinea is a country of redemption.
