Lamari AX (Papua New Guinea)


Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a relative newcomer to the specialty coffee scene. The remote locations of the nation’s smallholders—who produce 85% of total coffee in the country—combined with historically-poor infrastructure has made the transition to specialty difficult. Nonetheless, the country is working towards innovative solutions that will lead to better quality coffee and improved livelihoods for the nation’s smallholder coffee producers.

This coffee is named for the Lamari River that flows through Papua New Guinea's Eastern Highlands. Lamari AX is full of chocolate and brown sugar notes, caramelised apple and cloves on aroma, a very pronounced sweetness with low acidity and medium body.
