Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea’s mountainous terrain with amazingly fertile volcanic soil is excellent for growing rich, vibrant Arabica coffee but not very good for transporting it. As a result, many remote villages and smallholder coffee farms that make up 85% of PNG’s coffee production are only reachable by foot or light aircraft, which is why air travel is crucial to get things moving.
Simbai Balus Kopi (Simbai Airplane Coffee) comes from the Simbai region, just over the Bismarck Range that borders the Western Highlands Province and Sepik Province. Our sister company at origin, Volcafe PNG, works with over 4,000 farmers in this isolated region across four airstrips to get them the support they need.Origin: Papua New Guinea
