This special lot in Papua New Guinea's is made entirely from smallholder farms from Eastern Highland Province and takes its name from the community in which it is grown. The regions high altitudes and fertile lands not only help to provide the optimum setting for coffee growing, but also microclimate like conditions that give lots from Goroka their unique characteristics. Eastern Highland terrain is known for its rugged mountain terrains and broad valleys. 

Traditionally, these very remote regions of Papua New Guinea are difficult to traverse, meaning many producers have to carry their crop over long distances to receive factory door prices. Fortunately for communities in Goroka, the region benefits from good road access, allowing producers access to the mill.

Land in PNG is still to this day conventionally owned, with plantations here managed by smallholder farmers; averaging just 2 hectares. Coffee is inter-cropped with other produce to increase soil humus (decaying plant matter that increases retention of moisture and nutrients), fertility and shade. Crops include; plantain, bananas, yams, sweet potato, cabbage and other traditional foods. Although a variety of other produce is grown, coffee cultivation is often the primary means of income; with other produce grown and livestock reared only for personal consumption. This makes coffee an important cash crop, as most farmers in the Goroka Province will grow coffee for income.

Today, coffee is a major industry for Papua New Guinea with the country currently exporting around 1 million bags of coffee every year; involving more than 2.5 million people (nearly half of the total population). Our purchase of just a pallet of 10 bags this year is really just a small splash in the vast ocean but with increase awareness and education about great tasting coffees available in Papua New Guinea(PNG), we are positive that we will find a heightened appreciation of PNG locally so to inspire us to continue searching and chasing for that cup of perfection in this land that is also well known for its existence of endangered wildlife such as bird of paradise, tree kangaroos, Horne bills, peacocks and parrots!

Goroka Valley Lot 36 is only our fifth ever coffee purchase from Papua New Guinea in the last 11 years, having previously introduced the Virgin Mountain, Monpi Arufa, Mount Otto and Arokara, but definitely one of the most delicious PNG of our time. This coffee was first introduced to our month of May 2024 Roaster’s Choice Subscription subscribers and is now available for a very short time, while stock last. Come and have a taste of Papua New Guinea!
