The Western Highlands Province is centrally located in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. It is the highest producing coffee region in the country. The volcanic soil in this area is very fertile, making it one of the biggest coffee cherry supply of PNG. Paul Pora owns and operates the Grass Roots wet mill. He is not a typical coffee producer. He has a degree in Agriculture and diplomas in Agricultural Breeding. Before becoming a producer himself, he worked with the Coffee Research Institute, in PNG. To fully control the quality of his coffee, Paul buys exclusively red cherries from the surrounding farmers. Hence the “Plantation”-quality grade: Paul and his team are able to select only the fully ripe cherries. After having processed the coffee, it is shipped to the Eastern Highlands to be prepared and stored before export: the Easter Highlands are far less humid and the coffee parchments preserve therefore its aromas.
