  • After many sessions of slurping and spilling Okapa down our shirts and dresses, we recommend to bring out all the natural flavour characters of this beautiful coffee by brewing in a plunger, as a filter pour over coffee, or run through an espresso machine, or as an outstanding stovetop brew.

    We recently had a visit from Mitchell, who is the co-op leader of the Okapa region, who shared with us some of the benefits he and his community has seen first hand from the fairtrade premium. Mitchell's grandfather was a coffee farmer, his father was a coffee farmer, and now he is a coffee farmer of this incredible coffee. Okapa is the oldest certified fairtrade region in Papua New Guinea, more than 14 years. Premium funding has been able to provide new classrooms, coffee pulpers, water and irrigation supply to churches, hospitals, schools and surrounding villages. One of the greatest challenges for his village are the roads. Transporting the 50 kgs of coffee out of town, can sometimes take over 8 hours to pass through a short stretch of kilometers. The fairtrade premium has allowed the region to build better roads, which has cut down transport time by half.

    We hope to sell more of this amazing coffee, to benefit more people in this very special community. Learn more about the origin story of the Fairtrade Cooperative behind the Niugini Okapa on the blog.

Smooth with a twist

Definitely smooth and easy to drink, but with added interest from the fruity notes.
