We use only 100% Arabica Coffee Beans and not Robusta Beans that a lot other Coffee Roasters tend to use (as using a mixture of Arabica & Robusta Beans is a cheaper alternative).
Our Coffee beans are “Single Origin”, grown in the pristine Highlands of New Guinea.
Competitive pricing as we only sell in minimum quantities of 10 kg vacuum sealed plain bags to Coffee Shops and Wholesalers for rebranding under their own private label.
Our clients are Australia-wide as well as internationally.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) coffee is mostly grown by villagers in their small garden plots, although there are also many coffee plantations that are grown on larger commercial farms.
Regardless of who grows our Papua New Guinea Coffee, all are grown at high altitudes usually exceeding 1,500 metres or 5,000 feet giving it a more delicate profile and softer tones in acidity; similar to the high altitude grown coffee from Central America that is world renowned for its quality, flavour and taste.
Papua New Guinea’s lush tropical climate is perfect for growing coffee. Our coffee beans come from the Kimel Estate that specifically presents sweet, tea-like tannins and subtle floral notes finished by a very-slight peppery after-taste.
Kimel Plantation or Estate is a large farm founded by Australian expatriates but now owned and operated by local tribal groups who claim traditional ownership of the land. It is located in the Wahgi Valley, near the town of Mount Hagen.
Kimel is one of the very few estates in PNG and is situated to the north of Mount Hagen. We operate our own wet and dry mill, covers 600 hectares and accepts the production of local and village plantations which covers an additional 1000 hectares.
Growing Arusha, Bourbon, Typica varietals, the original trees on the estate were from the Jamaican Blue Mountains.
A combination of the unique environment and plantation practices such using coffee pulp for fertiliser, dried husks for heating and fresh, unpolluted water from the mountains all add to the estate’s sustainability practices.
Kimel beans are acknowledged for their distinctive characteristics, especially the savoury notes and bright, very pleasant acidity.
There is a subtle difference in the typical Papua New Guinea profile, however depending on where and how the fruit has been removed and the coffee dried.
Small garden plot grown coffee has the skin and pulp removed by hand in the village and is dried onsite.
Owing to irregularities in fruit removal and processing, the coffee often adds a unique note to the basic PNG coffee profile, well known for its cleanly and sweetly delicate complexity.
Papua New Guinea, with its high altitudes and lush growing conditions, has tremendous potential as a source of refined and beautiful coffee.
It is also a coffee origin in transition, from historically Australian and European operated farms and mills to domination by village growers organised into cooperatives and other collective entities.
The latest development is the emergence of the powerful 100,000-member Papua New Guinea Coffee Growers Federation that now exports to the U.S. and Europe which aims at vertical integration, from cooperative farmer through export and import to roasting and retailing.
Having exposed to new coffee growing and procession techniques over time, the small farm collectives that are coming to dominate Papua New Guinea coffee production could end up producing a Pacific equivalent of Kenya coffee, less acidy but just as fruity and elegant, along with other less orthodox coffee styles that incorporate some of the serendipitous, earthy beauty of the best traditional coffees of Sumatra.
