Produced in Paul Pora’s Grass Roots Wet Mill, these Papua New Guinea coffee beans are a beaut example of high-grade speciality PNG coffee.
The result of fertile volcanic slopes, selective cherry picking and natural processing methods, Paul Pora is a true gem - providing white grape acidity, blueberry sweetness and a buttery shortbread finish.
We’re absolutely loving this tropical fruit banger, and think it’s the perfect send off to a wonderful summer!

More about Paul Pora:
Paul Pora has a long history of working in the Papua New Guinea coffee industry, with numerous diplomas and a degree in the coffee agriculture sector to his name.
Managing the Grass Roots Wet Mill gives Paul the opportunity to work closely with PNG’s small holder farmers and share his knowledge with them.
He individually selects only the ripest cherries, giving him control akin to ‘plantation quality’, which is normally associated with much larger estates. The cherries are then sun dried to 11% moisture.
Due to the extreme high altitude of this region, there is very little moisture in the atmosphere - making it perfect for Papua New Guinea coffee storage.
To preserve quality, it is only transported the final 200 miles down to the port city of Lae at the last minute, to avoid the very high humidity of the lowlands.
🇵🇬 More about Papua New Guinea Coffee:
If you’re wondering about Papua New Guinea coffee taste, the beans produced in this origin offer a distinct flavour profile to surrounding regions - sweet and tropical with a crisp acidity as a result of the fertile volcanic soils.
While coffee production is PNG’s second largest agricultural export to oil palm, the country supplies less than 1% of the world’s total coffee exports.
The majority of coffee produced is Papua New Guinea highlands coffee, with the Western Highlands accounting for between 42 - 46% of PNG's annual production.
We’re proud to promote Paul Pora and the team behind this delish Papua New Guinea coffee. Happy sipping!
