Farm: Kindeng Mill

This coffee comes to us from the Kindeng Dry Mill, located in the Jikawa province of Papua New Guinea. It is a blend of coffee purchased in cherry from about 1500 multiple smallholders located in the Kindeng and Arufa municipalities. The average farm size of producers in this area is about 1-2 hectares, and the soil is generally sandy loam and loamy clay. After cherries are received at the mill, they are processed accordingly and dried on raised beds and canvasses. They are moved multiple times a day throughout the average 1-month drying process to ensure an even and uniform average moisture content across the lot. Once the coffee is adequately dried, it is placed into bags, stored in a cool and dry warehouse, hulled, milled, and prepped for export.

Process: Natural

Kindeng Mill – Natural Naturally-processed coffees from Papua New Guinea are quite rare, but we have been happily sourcing them since the early 2020’s. When it comes to this process, only the ripest cherries are used as the amount of time necessary to dry and cure these coffees fully is extensive. After cherries are harvested, they are hand sorted and placed on raised beds for an average period of 3-4 weeks until fully dried. During this time, the cherries are moved by hand on a regular basis to ensure an even moisture content throughout the lot
