Situated roughly 400km Northwest of the capital of Port Moresby. The Nori Kori Valley, Virgin Mountain is named for the well preserved coffee trees that separate the Kamano/Kafe and the Gadzup people.
One of the primary reasons that coffees like these reach the expected quality requirements of the specialty coffee industry is through the hard work and resilience of people like Ben Akike, who connects smallholder farms with milling and export facilities. Ben has taken on the role of coffee curator, collector and educator in the Nori Kori Valley. He ensures that the high prices he pays for the coffee cherries warrant their prices, and contributes to the smallholder community education on sustainable and positive agricultural practices. Ben has been an inspirational figure in the Specialty coffee producing community in Papua New Guinea, and has been integral in promoting the quality of coffee from this region.
