Visits to various coffee growing communities across the country
Papua New Guinea's Coffee
From smallholder grown 'Y grade', to home of some of the world's best specialty coffees. For PNG, coffee is the second largest agricultural export product (after Palm Oil). It is a source of income for 2 million Papua New Guineans, from subsistence smallholder coffee growers in remote area's of the Highlands, to employees at the exports or logistics level. I'm lucky enough to be able to visit the coffee growing areas regularly. The landscape, the people and the coffee gardens all make for excellent photo opportunities.
