Story of the Bean:
The world has enjoyed almost a century of distinctive and flavorful coffee from the central mountain range of Papua New Guinea. Those highlands support thousands of producers who maintain small coffee gardens consisting of as few as 20 plants. The Arokara Cooperative in the Eastern Highlands is one of the groups collecting cherry from these gardens and ensuring only well-processed high-quality coffee is delivered. This hand-selected lot creates an effervescent cup, sparkling with the light acidity of white grapes balanced by the earthy sweetness of molasses and blackberries.
