    Background:
    A local entrepreneur in Kabiufa, Moses Venapoe starts buying coffee with a firm focus on the best possible quality in 2019. He fill the void of an absent dedicated coffee buyer by setting up a buying station for his community in Kabiufa. Moses set up a cherry buying operation and built a small wet mill in his own back yard to ensure full control of the wet milling, fermentation and drying of the coffee. With high-quality in mind, Moses organised the buying process in a (for PNG) unique way: significant premiums of 30% above market price are paid immediately to the supplier for a “red cherry only” delivery. This means cherry is hand-sorted at the wet mill, prior to weighing it and buying it.

    The carefully selected ripe cherry gets processed while the unripe cherry is discarded. This serves both as a deterrent to the delivery of unripe cherries and to encourage better harvesting at the farm. Although Moses has only been operating on a small scale (50 smallholder cherry suppliers) and is only new to the world of coffee, his ability to effectively implement best practices are remarkable.
