The history of coffee production on the island of New Guinea is not that long. While coffee was planted in the 1890’s it wasn’t until 1926 where it was treated as a commercial product. Eighteen estates were established using seeds from Jamaica’s Blue Mountain and by the 1950’s growth followed by the creation of infrastructure on the island. Today’s 95% of producers are small holders and they produce around 90% of the countries coffee, which is almost entirely Arabica.
