Fair Trade and Organic-FTO Chuave
Origin: Papua New Guinea
|Variety||Arusha, Bourbon, Typica|
|Country||Papua New Guinea|
Cupping Notes: Savory and citric with nutty, herbal, and cocoa flavors
These cupping notes are relative to light roast profiles. As the roast profile darkens toward medium to medium/dark, these notes will be slightly eclipsed, resulting in more sweetness and roasted flavor. Once the french roast profile is attained, most of the aforementioned cupping notes will be difficult to detect.
Keto Tapasi Progress Association was founded in 2008 as an association of smallholder coffee growers from 18 communities and villages in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, in the Chuave District. The organization has around 375 members, who cooperate and collaborate despite the vast differences in both culture and language between their heritage groups. The organization has been Fair Trade–certified since 2011 and certified organic since 2014, and has used the premiums it receives to invest in depulpers as well as warehouse space and transportation.
Additional Information: Papua New Guinea, in the southwestern Pacific, encompasses the eastern half of large island of New Guinea north of Australia. PNG is one of the least explored places left on earth, with dense rainforests, rugged mountains and many diverse indigenous people (with over 800 languages spoken). This coffee is grown in the eastern mountainous highlands regions; 40% of the population of PNG derives income from coffee farming.
