We had the non-decaffeinated version of this coffee in at the beginning of 2018, and was a resounding hit with its basey chocolate notes. This decaf incarnation is much the same, decaffeinated using the CO2 process, which a rich, nutty body.

Most of the coffee exported out of PNG is grown by smallholder producers in ‘coffee gardens’ of around 2 hectares planted with around 2,000 trees. These are often inter-planted with leguminous trees, such as Casuarina and Albizia, which provide shade cover for the coffee. There are also a number of conventional plantations, but these declined dramatically in number after PNG declared independence in 1975 and many of the large foreign land owners left the country. Most of these plantations have since been sub-divided and are now managed by ‘block holder’ tenant farmers with labour provided by the extended family.

This coffee, which has been processed at the Solwara Dry Mill, has been produced by such small holder farmers.
