Papua New Guinea Nebilyer Valley
Release Date: 2/6/2018
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.
