This coffee is perfect for an Australian palate with a spectacular combination of citrus, nut and toffee. It presents its profile beautifully when served both hot or iced, with or without milk blends. This coffee works particularly, and uniquely, well with a lemon slice over ice on a warm day.
Coffee is the highest foreign exchange earner for Papua New Guinea, the majority of which is grown in the Eastern Highland Province, the Western Highland Province, and Simbu. With the industry not derived on a colonial plantation-based system, production is largely by small farmers with land holdings that grow as little as 20 trees per plot in "coffee gardens" alongside subsistence crops. The Coffee Industry Corporation Ltd., as an umbrella organisation, has regulated, facilitated, and also provided research and extension services to the coffee farming community. This has been enabled in the form of incentives to farmers to sustain production with due care for quality and marketing facilities.
