For years, we have been trying to feature a single farmer’s coffee from around the village of Bonta in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Finally, this year it happened! This lot represents a selection of two days of picking from Boka, who is one of the most dedicated farmers in the area. This one-of-a-kind coffee has a syrupy sweetness that is accentuated by a balanced pear-like acidity with notes of vanilla, stone fruit, and a delicate savoriness.
Big Trouble offers nutty, caramel flavors people know and love, which may seem easy—and our goal is to make it easy to enjoy in any brewer—but it's actually one of the most challenging for us, because clean, sweet, low-acidity coffees from small-scale farms can be elusive.
