This special lot from Monpi coffee is made entirely from smallholder farms from Jiwaka 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 Arufa their unique characteristics. Sitting in the shadow of Mount Bangeta, the land is filled with winding waterways that help distribute much-needed volcanic nutrients throughout the soil.

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 Arufa, the region benefits from good road access, allowing producers access to Monpi’s mill. 

Land in PNG is still to this day conventionally owned, with plantations in Arufa 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 Jiwaka 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!

Monpi Arufa is only our third ever coffee purchase from Papua New Guinea in the last 8 years, having previously introduced the Virgin Mountain and Arokara, but definitely one of the most delicious PNG of our time. This coffee was first introduced to our month of May 2021 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!
