THE STORY BEHIND MORITA
Nestled in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, Morita is named after the hill at the highest elevation on the Baroida Plantation. The hill is planted with 100% arusha beans, which is a rare and unique variety of Bourbon, found in PNG and Tanzania. Nichol Cobran manages the farm with the assistance of his sons Rhett & Chris. He has has perfected his style of coffee processing after decades of experience, and at Baroida they have a full wet factory on-site for their washed process. They also have a dry mill for hulling, grading, and hand-sorting (which is very rare for premium small-holder coffees).
Morita is a delicate and creamy offering with tasting notes that range from herbal and savory to tropical and sweet. Yet, despite its complexity, it’s a comfort coffee at heart—and a unanimous staff favorite.
