About the coffee
Papua New Guinea is one of the least developed countries on the planet, home to tribes who have had limited contact with the ‘outside’ world, if at all. This has given it a reputation for somewhat wild frontier land. Politically, the country seems to perpetually border on melt down between rival groups. Formerly an Australian colony, Papua New Guinea’s economy continues to be heavily influenced by its large antipodean neighbour.
