Papua New Guinea Coffee Overview

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.

About The Coffee Maven

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
