This coffee comes from the Colbran Coffeelands Estate in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Ben Colbran started this farm in the 1960's, at first as a vegetable farm to make income to pay for the land, but always with the dream to turn his land into a coffee farm. His son Nichol grew up on the farm and eventually took over as director, and still owns and operates it today. After the ripe cherries are harvested the coffee then goes through very careful sorting practices. Cherry is then pulped using disk pulpers, which are pulping machines that use large "disks" that spin to move coffee cherries through and remove the fruit. The de-pulped cherries are then dry fermented in vats for about 36 hours. Doing this allows the rest of the fruit to loosen from the coffee seeds naturally and after the rest of the fruit has started to separate on its own, they then rinse it clean with water. This coffee is very tea-like, clean, and unmistakably a PNG!
