Origin story, from Jasper Coffee

We recommend to bring out all the natural flavour characters of this beautiful coffee by brewing in a plunger, as a filter pour over coffee, or run through an espresso machine, or as an outstanding stovetop brew.

Jasper Coffee recently had a visit from Mitchell, who is the co-op leader of the Okapa region, who shared with them some of the benefits he and his community has seen first hand from the Fairtrade premium.

Mitchell's grandfather was a coffee farmer, his father was a coffee farmer, and now he is a coffee farmer of this incredible coffee. Okapa is the oldest certified Fairtrade region in Papua New Guinea, more than 14 years. Premium funding has been able to provide new classrooms, coffee pulpers, water and irrigation supply to churches, hospitals, schools and surrounding villages. One of the greatest challenges for his village are the roads. Transporting the 50 kgs of coffee out of town, can sometimes take over 8 hours to pass through a short stretch of kilometers. The fairtrade premium has allowed the region to build better roads, which has cut down transport time by half.
