We are now getting only one grade of PNG coffee from our partner, it is the PSC-AX. This is a triple-sorted, sun-dried and wild-grown organic coffee that has not been selected by size, meaning it has the AA beans mixed in with smaller beans and peaberries. Why? After two years of experience we decided we like the cup profile of this selection that is not leaving out the peaberries and smaller beans. And we have been rewarded for our beliefs, this extraordinary crop received a superb 86 cupping score in initial evaluations!
These beans are certified as to origin and brought to port by small Cessna planes that engage in a triangle trade bringing needed medicines, supplies and food types that can not be grown in the mountains to the coffee producers, who otherwise would have great difficulty getting their coffee to market. This is a non-for-profit charitable organization that helps these farmers avoid the risks of bandits and uncertain terrain bringing their beans down the mountain by road.
Papua New Guinea coffee is descended from Jamaica Blue Mountain, which is a variety of Arabica. Jamaica Blue Mountain is possibly the second-most-expensive coffee region after Kona. Both of these regions produce superlative coffee but their growing areas are very limited. We have had many customers tell us that actually prefer this Papua New Guinea to Jamaica Blue Mountain. Save money and get an extraordinary taste profile!
