This new PNG Decaf is grown in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea in the Ivangoi, Purosa and Okapa valley. Over 3,000 farmers work this valley and a majority of the farmers grow their varieties in small gardens in tribal villages. Some of these coffee trees are over 25 years old, producing less cherries, but have a much higher sugar content than newer crops which means they are producing more sweet and complex cups.
The beans are pulped and dried in parchment then sent to Goroka where it is milled and prepared for export. When it arrives in the United States, it is sent to the Swiss Water headquarters in Vancouver to be decaffeinated.
