AVAILABLE FROM 05-02-24
Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a relative newcomer to the specialty coffee scene. The remote locations of the nation’s smallholders - who produce 85% of the total coffee in the country - combined with historically poor infrastructure has made the transition to specialty difficult. Nonetheless, the country is working towards innovative solutions that 
is leading to better quality coffee and improved livelihoods for the nation’s smallholder coffee producers.
Most farmers in PNG grow coffee on small plots of land intercropped with other cash and subsistence crops. Most land where coffee is grown can more aptly be described as “coffee gardens” than as farms or plantations. Many smallholders in PNG process their cherry at home. Farmers pulp their cherry - usually with small drum pulpers or other hand-powered methods, the predominant drying methods are sun drying on raised beds or tarps or mechanical dryers, of which the Asaro dryer is most popular.
