Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley
This coffee from the Nebilyer Valley in Papua New Guinea can be summed up in one delicious word: smooth.
First, you’ll notice the soft hazelnut aroma. Full bodied, this continues in the cup with notes of milk chocolate, spice, and crème brulee over a creamy, medium body. A delicately smoky finish lingers pleasantly. Even though this is a fully washed coffee, we noticed the faintest breath of coffee fruit from beginning to end.
We highly recommend this if you prefer a low acid coffee.
Aroma: Rich, fruity, nutty
Cup: Creamy, smooth, chocolate, spice
Finish: Lingering, rich, delicately smoky

Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley A/X is sourced from family-owned farms located in the Nebilyer Valley within Tambul-Nebilyer District, Papua New Guinea. Each producer cultivates coffee on 1 to 2 hectares of land. The coffee is fully washed and sun-dried at the Kuta mill, which has been in operation for over 40 years.
The Kuta mill operates between the Ulga and Kolga tribes and has become a place of common ground for producers who have traditionally been in conflict because of tribal differences. The mill owner, Brian Leahy, makes a bonus payment after the harvest to farmers who consistently deliver quality cherries.
