THE STORY BEHIND OBURA
The Colbran family has done a lot of work in Obura, after which they named this coffee that comes from many small lots in this Eastern Highlands village of Papua New Guinea. They’ve trained farmers how to process and dry their coffee using hand crank pulpers and bilums (traditional woven bags) for fermentation. The highest quality deliveries from this community are set aside to build the Obura lots, which are then taken to the dry mill on the Colbrans' Baroida Plantation for hulling, grading, and hand-sorting (which is very rare for premium small-holder coffees).
We love this coffee because of its distinct, semi-sweet flavor: think Riesling white wine, ripe plums, and woody notes.
