Origins: Papua New Guinea

A country of coffee gardens and large plantations, towering mountains and lush volcanic soils, Papua New Guinea is known for its exceptional washed Arabica. The first coffee plantation was established here in 1928. Smallholder plantings began in 1952 in the Asaro Valley of the Eastern Highlands, and a rapid expansion followed. Today, coffee touches the lives of more than 2 million people in the country.
