Background:

Community Select

Part of our stratified buying approach, these community select lots are mostly larger lots of coffee with an elevated profile above our signature coffees. Generally these are blended lots from various producers from a single community in a specific coffee growing region in the world. These lots offer an increased level of traceability and often are a result of small-holder producers banding together in an official or unofficial structure to sell their coffees together. Café Imports is able to blend specific day lots to create a desired profile working closely with these farmers.

 

Kindeng Mill

This coffee comes to us from the Kindeng Dry Mill, located in the Jikawa province of Papua New Guinea. It is a blend of coffee purchased in cherry from about 1500 multiple smallholders located in the Kindeng and Arufa municipalities. The average farm size of producers in this area is about 1-2 hectares, and the soil is generally sandy loam and loamy clay. After cherries are received at the mill, they are processed accordingly and dried on raised beds and canvasses. They are moved multiple times a day throughout the average 1-month drying process to ensure an even and uniform average moisture content across the lot. Once the coffee is adequately dried, it is placed into bags, stored in a cool and dry warehouse, hulled, milled, and prepped for export.
