Meet House Bean

For Folly Coffee’s House Bean, the name of the game is fruit forward. No wonder, then, they’ve sourced this fragrant and flavorful coffee from the Wahgi Valley, Papua New Guinea. Our QC tasting notes include fragrance/aromas of fruit leather, fruit punch, cherry juice. Catching a fruity theme here?

The traditional method of processing coffee in PNG lends Folly's House Bean some extra fruitiness along with deep, spicy earth notes and bright, fruity acidity

Waghi Valley, Papua New Guinea

Coffee is a mainstay of the economy in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea. It is grown both on larger plantations and by smallholder farmers, and the Waghi Valley is one of the most heavily cultivated and settled areas in the region. Agriculture is not new to this valley: 30,000 years ago, it was home to people who were among the most advanced socio-political and farming communities on the earth at the time. Those farming methods were passed down the generations, and today descendants still employ them to grow coffee and other crops.

Ca. 1930, Mick Leahy, an Australian, was the first explorer to open the Waghi Valley, finding that the interior of Papua New Guinea was inhabited, a fact that had long been debated. These days, neat villages, well-tended gardens and coffee plantations fill the valley, and the capital city of Mount Hagen is the third largest city in PNG, a busy “wild-west” town bustling with technology and tradition.
