    Background: 

    Unlike many PNG specialty coffee stories, this coffee initiative does not have a long and rich history. In fact, the Riverside coffee is the result of a very new initiative. A local entrepreneur in Kabiufa, Moses Venapoe, attended some of our coffee workshops on best coffee practices. This encouraged him to try to start buying coffee with a firm focus on the best possible quality.

    Coffee from the Kabiufa area usually exchanges ownership in random small volumes at one of the many anonymous ‘roadside scales’ (small parchment buying points). This coffee ends up in blended untraceable and unremarkable Y grade lots. This is the case when there is no dedicated local coffee buyer to access and market the regionality of this coffee, and this was the case in Moses’ community.
    In November 2019 Moses decided to try his luck and his skills and fill the void of an absent dedicated coffee buyer by setting up a buying station for his community in Kabiufa. He did so by vigorously implementing the best post-harvesting and processing practices and demanding the same from his suppliers from day one! Unlike most coffee buyers in the area who trade parchment, Moses set up a cherry buying operation and built a small wet mill in his own backyard to ensure full control of the wet milling, fermentation and drying of the coffee.
