Grown in the highlands of Chimbu, this origin of coffee is pretty heckin sweet. This co-op, with farmers from 18 communities, first became fair-trade certified in 2011 and used the money the additional revenue to become organic certified in 2014. They're an awesome FTO success story! With their proper certifications in place, they're able to afford better equipment to process the green coffee beans.
We've noticed a sweet and smooth mouthfeel with chocolate and almond notes as well.
Your purchase supports coffee producers in Chimbu, Papua New Guinea and their families. In addition, we also donate to the School of Hope in Guatemala, which serves students in Huehuetenango by offering a quality bilingual education.

In order to keep your coffee as fresh as possible, make sure you keep your beans away from coffee's four main enemies: air, moisture, heat, and light. Preferably, keep your coffee in an air-tight container, but out of light. We know our beans are pretty, but keeping the beans in an opaque container will prolong their shelf life. Do not put your beans in a cabinet above the stove, or in an area that receives strong sunlight. Lastly, do not put your beans in the freezer. We follow the rule of wherever we would be comfortable, there our beans will be comfortable too. Follow these tips and your coffee will taste great for an extended amount of time!
