Coffee has been cultivated in the Nebilyer Valley of Papua New Guinea for over 40 years, and the bulk of it originates from small holders who may only plant 100 or so trees on their small plots. Previously, the valley has been explosive because clans and tribes have been at war. However, with the addition of coffee cultivation, the region has become less hostile. This specific coffee is a product of a multitude of small holders’ crops originating in many different villages and clans throughout the valley. The cherries produced by the small holders are taken to the Korgua wet factory—they use a wet processing, sun drying method.
