Tasting Notes
Delicately aromatic, subtly complex, this PNG is citrusy and sweetly herbaceous, with leading notes of Meyer lemon zest, marjoram, and cashew, supported by a throughline of apricot and a hint of spicy lavender. Mouthfeel is rich and full, and acidity is bright, even citrusy.

About the Coffee
The 703 smallholders in the Jimi River coffee network are among five of the most remote and isolated coffee communities in Papua New Guinea, where it takes a day’s walk to reach the nearest road. Together, they form an organic coffee grower group that focuses on bringing the best practices in social, environmental, and economic standards to their 787 coffee plots.

The farms in this network reach altitudes of 1600-1900masl, and 90% of the coffee is planted in the shade. All of the coffee grown in these plots is hand-picked, pulped, fermented, washed, sun-dried, and stored until they reach sizeable volumes. Afterwards, they are brought to the Produce Consolidation Storage Shed.

The group’s leadership manages quality control and facilitates bringing the coffee to market as a cooperative, adding value to the coffee and improving the livelihoods of their member producers in the long term.

All coffee is A/AA and X grade, sourced from Blue Mountain, Bourbon, and Typical varieties. The coffee is grown on the slopes of the Bismarck Range in the tropical rainforest along the Jimi River, which stretches from the foot of PNG’s highest mountain – Mount William.

Ample rainfall, a steadily comfortable climate, and beautiful tall mountain landscapes paint this picturesque region. These features make their way into the coffee beans for full flavor and unique character, with flavors of green tea, dried plum, lemon, and lime in the Tribal Organic lot.
