GODREVY // Papua New Guinea - Washed
A Tree Planted For Every Bag Sold - In partneship with Offset Earth.
This coffee comes from a combination of lots tendered by the 178-hectare Ulya plantation as well as several hundred local smallholder farmers. From these deliveries, daylots are blended together by quality and cup at the Ulya mill, located in the heart of Waghi Valley, in Papua New Guinea's Western Highlands.
The Ulya estate itself was established in the 1930s by the Lay family, who had relocated to Papua New Guinea from Australia and were part of the colonial efforts to introduce coffee as a cash crop to the country.
Originally the estate was closer to 800 hectares of land, but after Papua New Guinea achieved independence from Australia, large sections of land were given to indigenous New Guineans as part of redistribution. Therein lies some of the confusion: Ulya is the name of the region, the farm, and the shared wet mill.
