Our Kiam community lot comes from producer Paul Pora of the Jiwaka Province. Paul is not your average PNG producer; he holds a degrees in Agriculture and Agricultural Breeding. Before becoming a producer himself, he worked with the Coffee Research Institute, in Papua New Guinea.

The cherry used at the Kiam Mill is extremely selective and only ripe ‘picked on the day’ cherry is purchased. Cherry is either collected from regular farms and brought to the mill or is delivered to the wet mill by a regular supply chain of farmers.

All the cherry is pulped, washed, soaked and sun dried to 11 percent moisture content. The coffee is then stored as parchment for transportation to our central processing mill in Goroka, approximately 120 miles away in the Eastern Highlands Province, where it’s hulled for shipment. To preserve quality, the coffee stays in the highlands — where it’s far less humid — and is transported another 200 miles by road to the port city of Lae, only just in time to meet the vessel.

Ideal afternoon study coffee!

by

Don’t be alarmed as you roast this seed! You’ll smell some fairly odd aromas at the beginning of the roast. But if you hold out and develop your roast into second crack, you’ll find a very inviting and familiar coffee! It has a rich, herbal, caramel flavor with a strong earthy presence. Medium to full body ( when drip brewed) with a lingering finish. It’s the ideal afternoon study coffee!
