Neighbouring both Indonesia and Australia, the country of Papua New Guinea has been producing coffee since the 1800’s. However, it wasn’t really until the 1920’s that commercial production really took off. Since then, the Papua New Guinean Industry has had numerous highs and lows.
The 1960’s saw vast improvements to the country’s infrastructure, making it easier to transport coffee. A decade later and another boost was delivered following a slump in the Brazilian coffee market due to frost, which in turn bolstered Papua New Guinea’s Industry. Then, in the 1980’s, the coffee boom saw many plantation owners incur debts they later couldn’t repay. After a peak in the 1990’s, a depression in coffee prices dealt Papua New Guinea yet another major blow to their industry.
Today, Papua New Guinea’s economy has, for the most, recovered from its slump although more than 90% of the coffee grown in the country is on smallholder farms or small village “coffee gardens”. The rest is grown on large plantations dotted sparsely across the landscape.
Around 75% of the coffee grown in Papua New Guinea is found in the western and eastern highlands; other areas include Chimbu, Morobe, and Enga. Yet all in all, the country accounts for less than 1% of the world’s total coffee production. Approximately one million bags per year are shipped to Germany, Australia, Japan, the United States and, of course, the UK.
