Do you know where the coffee in Papua New Guinea originated? The seeds (Arabica typical) were brought to PNG in the 1930’s from Jamaica by the then British Administrators. They were planted at 5000 ft. above sea level where the climatic conditions are the same as the Jamaica Blue Mountains. (The range of altitude for Blue Mountain Coffee is between 3000 and 5500 ft.)
2-16oz bags Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee blended with Indonesian, Central American, and South American coffees. (The Jamaica Coffee Industry Board requires that all blends contain at least 20% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee to legally use the trademarked term Jamaica Blue Mountain.)
Papua New Guinea coffee is closely related to Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee and shares many of the same attributes. They are both Arabica Typica beans. And have naturally lower levels of caffeine. Many of the trees grown in Papua New Guinea were originally grown from Blue Mountain Coffee beans.
Kenyan coffee is well known for its full body flavor and gentle floral aroma. Grown in the rich volcanic soil in Eastern Africa, this is one of the most popular coffees sold in our store-front. Kenya AB+ bean provides a unique balance of body, flavor, and aroma. While the medium roast is a well balanced, stronger tone coffee, the dark roast is especially suited for Espresso.
