ABOUT 

Our Papua New Guinea Kepai is grown up, up and away in the PNG highlands region by local Kepai villagers. An extremely high premium is paid for this coffee which we consider a healthy reward for farmers’ commitment to producing their very best cherries.

Working with our wonderful, locally-owned exporter here has been fantastic. After a visit in 2019, we discussed purchasing a special lot for which we wanted to pay a great deal more in order to help support Kepai farmers’ livelihoods. To date, we’ve enjoyed a three-year-long partnership with this exporter and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this very special example of PNG coffee.

Our work in PNG is a passionate area of growth for us at Rumble. While the country’s climate is wonderful and we’ve always believed that PNG offers some of the best-tasting coffee in the world, problems with infrastructure and assistance to farmers can make it hard to access great coffee. We’re on a mission to change the fact that most coffee is exported from PNG to big multinational companies at a very low price. Not on our watch!
