Background Details

Papua New Guinea Korgua Estate Red Cherry Ecotact is sourced from the Korgua plantation located in the Nebilyer Valley within Tambul-Nebilyer District, Papua New Guinea. The coffee is washed, dried, and processed at the Kuta mill by owner and second generation coffee producer, Brian Leahy, whose father was one of the first outsiders to explore the area in the 1930’s. The Korgua plantation is one of the first established in the area and served as a buffer zone between the Ulga and Kolga tribes who have a long history of tribal conflict. Pulp from processing is collected and composted, utilizing earthworms, to produce organic fertilizers.
