Papua New Guinea Coffee
PAPUA NEW GUINEA
HARVEST PERIOD: June – September
ARRIVAL PERIOD: December-February
ANNUAL COFFEE PRODUCTION: 1 – 1.3 Million Bags
Typically sweet, with cocoa/chocolate and spicy aromas. Tea-like body, good mouth-feel, clean, good body, lemon taste, a delicate sweet fruity and lingering finish. Because of its altitude and tropical climate, the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea produces a year-round “fly-crop” of coffee, though the primary harvest season spans from February to July. Spice and citrus tend to dominate up-front, with chocolate and caramel on the finish.
Remote and unspoiled, Southern Highlands offers coffees from extremely high elevations. The best is perfectly balanced between bright acidity and earthy, caramel notes.
