Papua New Guinea

2010 Arabica Export Production = 921,391 60kg bags

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is half an island. It occupies the eastern half, while Irian Jaya, an Indonesian provence, occupies the western half. PNG coffees tend to have less of the earthy tones for which Indonesian coffees are prized but can be delicate and uniquely bright for the region. Most coffees are estate coffees that are meticulously wet-processed. Whether from an estate or small farms, organic certification is prevalent.
