Our Papua New Guinea single origin is a product of the Elimbari smallholding. Named after the highest picturesque mountain in the Chuave region of Simbu Province, Elimbari represents the finest and most successful smallholder coffee produced in Papua New Guinea. Farming in this area is still conducted in a very traditional manner via tried and tested means; with no artificial fertilisers. Coffee is inter-cropped with other produce to increase ‘soil humus’ (decaying plant matter that increases retention of moisture and nutrients) and fertility, as well as to provide shade.
This superior quality coffee was developed over several years in consultation with reputable international coffee experts. It has been successfully marketed overseas as a top-class specialty coffee. We agree with this whole heartedly, our Papua New Guinea Single Origin is one we will never get bored of!
Close involvement with farmers in the production of this coffee at all stages, is reflected in it’s unique and special quality. From cherry picking to pulping, fermenting, washing, drying, storing, and milling, at all stages of the process the beans must pass a rigorous set of quality control measures. We carry this meticulous approach through to our own storing, roasting and packaging. We are proud to leave you with the final product, which tastes incredible if we do say so ourselves.
The result are flavours of dried apricots and prunes with a medium to full body. Our favourite way to brew this coffee is by using V60 or Aeropress, however, due to its versatility, it also works well as a single origin espresso, as our lovely wholesale clients over at Fika are partial to.
