SINGLE ORIGIN FINCA MARAWAKA WOMEN'S PROJECT
Orange Juice | Cinnamon | Vanilla.
COUNTRY: Papua New Guinea
REGION: Eastern Highlands
The Marawaka Project is from a group of Women in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. A remote and rugged region connected to the world but only a few bush trails and mountain tracks. To get coffee out of the region it has to be carried bag by bag in an epic three-day hike through the jungle or alternatively on a chartered plane.
Most coffee buyers don't buy coffee from the region because of the near impossible restraints in getting the goods out of the mountains. But the Marawaka women's group have banded together against all odd to tackle their obvious access to market restraints. Headed by a young entrepreneurial woman, this lot represents the group's first attempt to present quality coffee to the world.
