The Farm - Korofeigu Farmers’ Co-Op Society
This farmer society is different from the typical regional co-op. It’s small, very traditional, and entirely Certified Organic. Each of the ninety farmers is a smallholder, sometimes with as few as twenty coffee trees in their ‘gardens’.
Despite the size, the society has had a big impact, enabling the coffee farmers of the Bena Bena Valley to profit more on their crops than ever before and creating a local economy that’s strong and resilient against the economic instability of the rest of the country.
Papua New Guinea isn’t like other coffee origins. The island remains unconsumed by concrete and industry. Dense jungle covers the tall mountain ranges—many of which are still home to tribes untouched by the outside world—and the natives protect their ancient, pristine landscape.
Even the natural coffee ‘gardens’ are Certified Organic because the locals prefer their ancient practices over agrochemicals. And you can taste the raw, natural flavors in this offering: sweet milk chocolate, smooth almond, and a rustic ginger-toned acidity
Coffee plants made it to Papua New Guinea in 1926, but large plantations didn’t. The jungle was too dense, the terrain too wild, the natives too honoring of their land. Over decades, the plants spread across the island, forming small natural gardens in isolated areas of the highlands.
The wild, rugged nature of these gardens means the annual coffee harvest isn’t a matter of expensive machinery, neat rows of plants, or precisely timed fertilizing. It’s a natural, communal time where man meets nature in a pure, honest, and inspiring way.
