We are so excited to offer you this unique coffee from the Simbai area of Papua New Guinea! Our importer’s sister company services over 4000 farmers in this isolated region through four airstrips. Since all coffee from Simbai is transported via plane, getting this coffee is not easy. In order to access the supply chain, Simbai farmers must bring their coffee to an airstrip; some farmers have a day’s journey from their farm to the airfields. At the airfields, the parchment is weighed, recorded and stored in sheds. When there is enough coffee for a plane-load, Volcafe’s local managers get a charter flight ready. They also organize freight and people for the outbound journey and cover part of the charter cost. The coffee is then transported to Mt Hagen where it gains access to the global supply chain.
In the cup, expect earthy, rich, and fruity flavor notes. Makes the perfect daily brew or espresso!
