The Lamari coffee is named for the Lamari River that flows through the Eastern Highlands. It is a robust selection of coffees sourced from a vast network of smallholders in the Lamari River Valley. The vertically integrated and whole-harvest sourcing makes the Lamari coffee accessible and sustainable.

The remarkable quality of this coffee is a direct result of years of extension services and work with smallholder producer groups on improving picking, pulping, sorting, fermentation and drying practices.

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 hopefully lead to better quality coffee and improved livelihoods for the nation’s smallholder coffee producers.
