Papua New Guinea shares the island of Papua with Indonesia. It’s a culturally diverse country with over 800 languages spoken among the local tribes, many of which have a history of conflict. This internal strife has made it hard for the coffee industry to find consistency among the many small lot farms, though 40% of the population earns its income from the coffee.
Though Papua New Guinea shares Papua with Indonesia, their coffees are rather dissimilar. Whereas Indonesian coffee is earthy and spicy, Papua New Guinea’s coffee is more tropical and citrusy with notes of chocolate.
