Arufa AX, Papua New Guinea

Tasting Notes

Childhood sweetshop nostalgia in a cup. Bold notes of foam banana on the nose and palate marry nicely with creamy strawberry highs and are underpinned perfectly by a sumptuously smooth caramel finish.

Arufa Natural Coffee refers to the Arufa region where the coffee is sourced and the specific processing of the cherries. The network is established in both Jiwaka Province and Western Highlands Provinces.

These highlands (1,520 to 1,770 meters above sea level) are flat lands as the valley is part of a huge plateau with stony mountains ridge bordering the edges. Particularly appreciated during the colonial era for its comfortable weather, astonishing landscape, rivers and soil fertility, large coffee and tea plantations were therefore established.
Today, these plantations have been split given to the Papua Guineans. The coffee farming communities maintained the coffee gardens where Bourbon, Arusha, Blue Mountain varieties were planted and later on Mondo Novo variety was introduced.

This coffee is the result of a commitment to the production of high quality cherries and Monpi’s expertise for processing.
Cherries are hand-picked by and sold at the Kindeng wet mill. Monpi then selects the best cherries, which are directly sun dried (omitting the pulping, fermenting and washing stages) for a period of about a month, before being hulled to green beans.

The dry cherries are processed to green beans in Kagamuga Monpi facility then moved to Goroka for final cleaning process.
