The Bean Story
Papua New Guinea Bunum Wo PB is grown in the Wahgi Valley in the Western Highlands Province at over 4500 feet. Soil and water conservation is a priority and the estate is bird and eco-friendly. They employ a medium density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees. This promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for at least 90 species of birds. Cherries are hand-picked and carefully checked for uniformity; it must be red and fully ripe which allows for the correct balance of sugar and acid within the cherry. This selected cherry is then pulped on the day of picking. A fermentation process follows, a period of three days broken every 24 hours by washing – but unlike many other coffees, the Bunum Wo process follows this by total immersion in water for a further day. This balances the flavors. After sun-drying, the coffees are carefully conditioned for 21 days. Next the coffee goes through the process of destoning, hulling, grading, densitometric sorting, color sorting, and finally hand sorting. The coffees are then meticulously graded, roasted, and cupped by their quality control team.
