About Papua

New Guinea is the second largest island in the world. The western half of New Guinea is part of Indonesia.
There are two main coffee growing areas in Papua: Baliem Valley, in the central highlands of the Jayawijaya region, surrounding the town of Wamena and the Kamu Valley in the Nabire Region, at the eastern edge of the central highlands, surrounding the town of Moanemani; at altitudes between 1,400 and 2000 meters, creating ideal conditions for Arabica production. Together, these areas currently produce about 230 tons of coffee per year.

BBCoffees are transported by pickups from remote villages to its warehouse in Wamena, central highlands town, and then flown to warehouse in Jayapura, the capital of the province as airplane is the only means of transportation available right now before being shipped to Makassar seaport for exporting to global markets.
