PAPUA NEW GUINEA, SMALLHOLDER FARMERS
SEED TO SIP:
This super delicious coffee originates from smallholder farmers in the Simbu province located in the rugged Highlands of PNG, home to traditional tribes living in remote villages without access to electricity, and where schools and medical services can only be reached by foot – many hours away. Most of Simbu’s population depends on subsistence farming whereby farmers focus on growing enough food to feed themselves and their families. Coffee plays an important role as it is usually the only cash crop providing income for these families. Typically families have planted their land with coffee which is grown organically producing between 5 to 15 bags of coffee cherries per annum. Harvesting season is between May and August when the coffee cherries are picked. Most smallholder growers process their cherries to parchment coffee before selling it to the local mill for hulling, screening and exporting.
Simbu in the local dialect really means Sipuuuu “thank you”. Thank you for choosing this coffee. Your 23 Degrees team wishes you: HAPPY SIPPING!!
