Coffee is the main source of income for highland farmers. Papua New Guinea currently exports around 1 million bags of coffee annually which equates to around 340 million kina brought into the economy. It is estimated that 87,000 hectares of land in Papua New Guinea is under coffee cultivation. Compared to the large coffee plantations you might find in Vietnam or Brazil, about 85% of Papua New Guinea’s coffee comes from smaller plots of land called “coffee gardens”. Some farmers have as little as 20 coffee plants per garden that are growing alongside other cash crops. Other coffee full-scale coffee operations have hectare upon hectare of coffee plants, a number of staff on site and large processing areas.
There are numerous brands of PNG coffee available, sourced from all over Papua New Guinea. The main type of coffee grown in the area is Arabica, with different blends and varieties available from each coffee producer. On this website we look to showcase the coffee produced in the highlands of Lau – made by Mosin coffee.
