Papua New Guinea

Interesting acidity and high variety define Papua New Guinea coffees. Cultural diversity of thousands of indigenous groups and the mountainous topography are staples of the island. Historical changes in infrastructure have reduced the number of centralized coffee plantations. Many New Guinea plantations are actually collections of traditional “coffee gardens”. These plots can be as small as 20 plants grown alongside subsistence crops. With increased introduction of modern processing methods, these coffees continue to grow in quality and consistency.


The Timuza Coffee Cooperative represents about 260 smallholder farmers of the Kamano tribal group, located southwest of Kainantu in the hamlets surrounding Namura town. The soils are a mix of black and brownish red loam, with predominately traditional typica grown under casuarina and albizia shade trees.

Average farm size is 1.4 hectares per family, with adjacent gardens for cultivation of food crops such as sweet potato, taro, and cassava. Farmers have received training and assistance in financial management, gender equality, coffee husbandry and standards for processing through local partners. The harvest takes place from April through September, with selective harvest of ripe cherry, manually pupling, fermentation in traditional bilum bags, washing, and full sun-drying. In 2016, Timuza placed 1st in the National Cupping Competition.
