We are very excited to offer a rare coffee from the West Highlands of Papua New Guinea. This highland area is so remote that even today there is no road between the highlands and the capital of Port Moresby. Kimel Estate coffee was first established in 1974 by Australian Bobby Gibbs, and is now owned by traditional landowners, with the Opais being the main tribe.
The estate is located on the Kimel River and implements eco-friendly practices, such as recycling pulp as organic fertilizer, and recycling the water used during wet processing. The coffee plants are protected by shade trees, including albizias and gravilleas.
