Papua New Guinea Arabica, Wild-Grown

New 2023 crop! These wild-grown, triple-picked (only the ripe beans each time) Grade A beans from the Jiwaka Province atop the Waghi Valley are extraordinarily "clean" and have that superb Papua Highlands taste profile we all know and love so well, blended with Typica and balanced for gentle but pleasing acidity, slight hints of toffee, spice, pear and a slight chocolatey finish.

This is an incredibly delicious coffee and one of our favorite Papua crops to date. Flown to port by small airplanes, from the remote PNG highlands!

8 ounces per bag, please choose ground or whole bean. Medium Roast.

Back in stock!


More Information


The taste is stunning. The varieties collected are Typica, Bourbon and Arusha Arabicas. The bushes grow largely wild and no pesticides are chemicals are used. Exceptionally low-acid, richly aromatic, and full-bodied, with notes of chocolate and fruit. 

All the coffee cherries are pulped, washed, soaked and sun dried to 11 percent moisture content. The coffee is then stored unhusked for transportation to a central processing mill in Goroka, approximately 120 miles away in the Eastern Highlands Province, where it’s hulled for shipment. To preserve quality, the coffee stays in the highlands — where it’s far less humid — and is transported another 200 miles by biplane to the port city of Lae, only just in time to meet the vessel.

  1. 5 Star Review Exceptional

    This is one of my favorite coffees but this particular crop and roast seems exceptionally rich. I use it sometimes as a dessert coffee, and other times to round out the flavor, mouth feel, and acidity of Dalat Peabody robusta.

  2. 5 Star Review Papua Is Best Coffee Bean

    I highly recommend this delicious coffee unmatched by any other coffee supplier except Len’s. It’s my everyday coffee I love drinking because it’s flavorful, mild with no bitterness but with a great coffee profile unmatched by any other coffee I’ve tried. I mix it with decaf coffees to reduce caffeine level for me but it’s really not necessary.

  3. 5 Star Review Intteresting

    Pretty balanced taste profile, not overly bitter or acidic. Interesting "clean" taste. Great roast level.

  4. 5 Star Review Best coffee in the world!

    I’ve drank a lot of coffee and have been around the world but this trumps them all! I’m also partial to it because I lived in PNG for a couple years. The coffee is so smooth and tasty with no bitterness or aftertaste. You’ve gotta try it and find out what you’re missing!

  5. 5 Star Review Fantastic

    Super smooth, almost no bitterness. I don't even really mind bitterness, but this let of a subtle flavors come right to the front. It's a challenge to decide between ordering a bunch of different varietals in the next order, or declaring victory and returning to these.

The Araku Valley of India

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
