The Waghi Valley of the Western Highlands is home to a centralized plantation mill used by local farmers to purchase, mill, and dry coffee. This Kindeng mill is a leased relic of colonial times. Owning a mill, or any property, in Papua New Guinea can risk the reputation and trust established with the local tribes by creating a perception of wealth discrepancy. Through the centralized milling and drying, our partners control the quality at the processing level. All in all, it’s a rare tasting coffee from an exciting location.
