This organic coffee from Goroka on the "Highlands Highway" of Papua New Guinea produces a bold and satisfying cup when roasted to a true medium. Roasted, this coffee is a smooth and sweet coffee with a creamy mouthfeel. Our cupping notes included browned butter, caramel, dark chocolate, and dried fruit.

Although Papua New Guinea Goroka is an Indo-Pacific coffee, it separates itself from the others in nearly every way. The most distinct difference is that the coffee from Papua New Guinea is wet processed and not wet hulled like other coffees from similar regional varieties. The difference in processing creates a cup with a very different flavor and body, a developed sweetness is prominent and earthy, vegetal flavors from these beans are rare and are usually due to poor processing or drying.

Coffee was first introduced to Papua New Guinea in the early 1900s, brought by the Germans and the British to sell to the Australian market. Once Jamaican typica was introduced, commonly known as Blue Mountain, coffee really took off in the region! Now coffee is grown on small plots, known as gardens, that serve individual communities and grow not only coffee but all kinds of food for the community as well! This organic lot comes from various smallholder farms that work on farms about 0.25 to 4 hectares on average.

Our unroasted, green coffee selection is intended for roasting purposes. Do not consume green coffee. Green coffee that has been purchased and roasted is not returnable.

It’s not just about where coffee grows but how high up it grows. Flavors become lighter and more complex the further from sea level a coffee grows, going from earthy to sweet to nutty citrus and chocolate to spiced wine and fruits.


Precipitation, temperature, and humidity have a lot of say in a coffee’s maturation, overall flavor, and quality. Many coffee-producing countries are either primed for growing success or use alternative methods to improve their ecosystem.

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Papua New Guinea

The Goroka area of Papua New Guinea is surrounded by mountains, where coffee grows up to an astounding 2,400 meters above sea level. At this elevation, coffee cherries mature more slowly and develop brighter, more acidic cup qualities. Because of the cooler temperatures, coffee’s natural sugars don’t break down as q...
