Simbai Balus Kopi (Simbai Airplane Coffee) comes from the Simbai area, just over the Bismarck Range bordering the Western Highlands Province and Sepik Province. Volcafe PNG Exports, in Papua New Guinea, services over 4000 farmers in this isolated region through four airstrips.
Since all coffee from Simbai is transported via plane, getting Simbai Balus Kopi is not easy. In order to access the supply chain Simbai farmers must bring their coffee to an airstrip; some farmers have a day’s journey from their farm to the airfields.
A creamy body is complemented by notes of melon, dried fruit, sweet caramel and subtle green tea
