Papua New Guinea – Keto Tapasi – Chuave – Fair Trade Organic – Green Unroasted

In Stock: 114 Lbs
Papua New Guinea
Chimbu Province, Chuave District, Eastern Highlands
Approximately 375 smallholder members of Keto Tapasi Progress Association
Arusha, Bourbon, Typica
1600 - 1800 masl
Washed
Sweet and savory with tangy acidity, melon, almond and caramel flavors.
84
Just shy of Dark Roast about halfway through 2nd crack.

Taste: Our latest PNG Fair Trade Organic offering delivers an aroma of almond extract, and the cup produced a very smooth mouthfeel, and subtle almond and caramel flavors.  The finish was sweet and soft.  Its a decent single origin, but will shine brighter when blended with a Colombian, Costa Rican, or Mexican bean.

Roast: We normally prefer to roast Papua New Guinea dark in an espresso blend with a higher acidity bean.

About: Keto Tapasi Progress Association was founded in 2008 as an association of smallholder coffee growers from 18 communities and villages in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, in the Chuave District. The organization has around 375 members, who cooperate and collaborate despite the vast differences in both culture and language between their heritage groups. The organization has been Fair Trade–certified since 2011 and certified organic since 2014, and has used the premiums it receives to invest in depulpers as well as warehouse space and transportation.

Smallholders typically own anywhere from a couple to a couple-hundred coffee trees, and sustenance farming on these more “garden-like” plots is common; the call them coffee “gardens,” in fact, rather than farms, and the farms themselves have no names and carry no formal demarcation to indicate where one neighbor’s land ends and the other’s begins. Generally, the farmer members will depulp and ferment their coffee on their own farms; it is bought and sorted in parchment at the central mill in Goroka for drying, in deliveries from 25–65 kilograms.

One the coffee is picked and depulped, the farmers will ferment it dry for one to three days before washing it and laying it to dry on blue tarpaulins for three to four days.

    Any chance of getting more anytime soon?

    • U-Roast-Em Admin says:

      Mike,
      Our supplier is out of this particular PNG at the moment. We think the organic PNG Kainanti compares very favorably with the Keto Tapasi. Hopefully we will be able to get more in the future. The harvest schedule is typically the end of May to the beginning of October. Thanks for the inquiry and happy roasting!
