Single Origin Release: Papua New Guniea

Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. There are over 800 languages recognized and most of the population lives in rural, customary communities. Most coffee comes from small subsistence farmers who tend to small plots of coffee trees that share land with other crops, referred to locally as “coffee gardens". This lot came from a region called Kunjin where individual producers each have about 1.5 hectares (3-4 acres) of land and was processed at a centralized mill called Kindeng located in the Western Highlands.

Single Origin Release: Guatemala Santa Isabel

Santa Isabel is situated on 300 acres of high, fertile land in the cool, rainy area of Cobán. The farm is owned and operated by the Valdéz family. Luis is the general manager and his son, Luis Jr. ("Wicho"), whose background is in agronomy, acts as the agricultural manager. When the farm was originally planted with Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai varietals, the Cobán region wasn’t known for high-quality coffee.
