Cartel introduces new Papau New Guinea Coffee, Rika Rika

Coming this week to our cafés and our online store is a new Papau New Guinea coffee, Rika Rika.

Rika Rika is a relatively small cooperative of farmers from the rural areas of Hengonofi and Okapa Districts of the Eastern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea. 

Their coffees consist of washed Arusha, Bourbon, and Typica varieties grown between the impressively high range of 1800 to 2200 meters above sea level. Volcanic soil, plentiful rains, and cooler climate are responsible for this region’s uniqueness.

We taste: grape acidity, buttery body, and notes of hazelnut.
