This coffee comes from Papua New Guinea’s highlands within the Chimbu province, Chuave district. Coffee is grown mainly by smallholders in ‘gardens’, a small plot of land that contains everything from a few trees up to 3 hectare plots at most. There are a few more traditional plantations but these only account for 20% of production. Once picked coffee is pulped, and then dry fermented for 24 hours in boxes before
being washed and dried on sails - stretched tarpaulin drying beds.Coffee is then sold to collectors and taken to the renovated dry mill belonging to Kongo, who cup, select, process & hand sort before bagging & exporting the coffee.

Arusha is an interesting varietal, assumed to be from Typica lineage.It occurs in both Tanzania and Papua New Guinea but other than that, information is vague at best. Arusha itself is a city in Tanzania,near Kilimanjaro.
