New Guinea Coffee is grown in the mountain highlands of Papua New Guinea, mostly on small plantations that are sometimes called peasant patches because peasants cultivate the coffee plants.
In recent times Arona has been valued slightly higher in coffee markets than Sigri, which is another fine New Guinea coffee.
Papua New Guinea Coffee is a smooth and notably sweet coffee with a medium body and acidity level. The initial taste reflects dark berry flavors and ends with dark chocolate, but a remarkably clean finish.
