We’re not sure what it is, but we love coffees from Papua New Guinea. We’ve purchased many different coffees from PNG over the years and have never been disappointed. From the Ulya Mill in Wahgi Valley, this particular coffee is grown by a combination of various smallholder farmers and one 178-hectare private estate – called that Ulya estate.
The Ulya estate was established in the 1930s and originally encompased close to 800 hectares of land. However, when Papua New Guinea achieved independence from Australia, large sections of land were given to indigenous New Guineans as part of redistribution who make up the hundreds of other smallholder farmers at the Ulya Mill.
Ulya is the name of the region, the estate farm, and the shared wet mill.
