Papua New Guinea
100% ORGANIC, FAIR TRADE, SHADE-GROWN COFFEE
Papua New Guinea is an exotic cup with a bright hint of apple and a subtle wine taste. A very distinct Indonesian coffee, the Papua New Guinea is full flavored with a smooth finish.
Fair Trade certification enables the farmers who grow our coffees to keep their family-owned farms and benefit from economic and educational programs, while growing a great organic crop. Our coffees are also grown in the shade of the forest canopy—preserving ancient forests and natural habitat for innumerable species of plants and animals.
Higher Ground's Guinean coops were formed in the 1990's as a response to the chronically low prices they received for their crops. With the money provided from Fair Trade sales, the coop has been able to assist all of the family members within the coop:
- Education for the children of Coop members
- Construction of a meeting house for the women's group
- Provision of basic electricity and water for households
