Papa New Guinea Simbai (Single Origin)[Reserve Series]
Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate & prune
Simbai Balus Kopi (Simbai Airplane Coffee) comes from the Simbai area, just over the Bismarck Range bordering the Western Highlands Province and Sepik Province. Since all coffee from Simbai is transported via plane, getting Simbai Balus Kopi is not easy. In order to access the supply chain Simbai farmers must bring their coffee to an airstrip; some farmers have a day’s journey from their farm to the airfields. At the airfields, the parchment is weighed, recorded and stored in sheds (which were built by Genuine Origin's sister company). When there is enough coffee for a plane-load our local managers get a charter flight ready. They also organize freight and people for the airstrip for the outbound journey to cover part of the charter cost (usually about $2,000 USD). The coffee is then transported to Mt Hagen where it gains access to our global supply chain. [Genuine Origin]
You can buy 100 gram sample packs of any of our coffee, which will come with 6 different offerings! These are the perfect touch for a local AirBnb listing or hotel room as a way to introduce your guests to local businesses in Cold Spring.
Colombia Huila El Tiple (Single Origin)
Tasting Notes: Milk chocolate, Almond, Cane Sugar
Huila El Tiple Excelso EP was sourced from small, family-owned farms throughout the Huila department. Huila is currently the largest producer of coffee in Colombia. However, its development was unconventional and unlike other regions such as Antioquia, Santander or Cundinamarca. Abundant labor from Huila, traveled to traditional coffee producing provinces to work as pickers. When they returned to their homeland, they brought not only money, but also coffee beans and knowledge. The rest, as they say, is history. [Genuine Origin]
Decaffeinated Colombia Calle de Cauca (Single Origin)
Tasting Notes: cherry, caramel, cane sugar
Altitude: 1350 to 1750
Located in a biological Conservation Corridor, Valle del Cauca lies between the National Park of Tatama and "serrania de los paraguas". Some years ago, this region was identified by Conservation International as one of the two main conservation corridors in Colombia.
Farmers in this region are strongly aware of the importance of the preservation of natural resources, water management and friendly environmental practices. Valle del Cauca was once a prominent producer of coffee, but much of the land is now dedicated to producing sugar cane.
This coffee was decaffeinated using the Sugarcane Process. The process uses ethyl acetate - an organic compound found in sugar cane - to remove 97% of the caffeine from coffee beans. The process tends to leave a pleasant, sweet flavor.[Genuine Origin]
Tasting Notes: Strawberry, red grape, honey & green tea

The washing station receives coffee cherries from 880 Guji zone smallholders and, with 400 beds available to dry parchment, the station has the capacity to process 7000 kg of coffee per hour.
The launch of Mulish Washing Station in 2014 was a boon for the area farmers. The mills proximity to smallholders reduced travel time and made it easier for farmers to sell their coffee. Mulish sees its growers as the backbone of the operation and thus it is deeply committed to smallholders. The washing station not only provides training to farmers to improve coffee growing practices, it also sponsors education in the community by building classrooms for the local school.

Guatemala Huehuetenango (Single Origin)
Tasting Notes: Baker's chocolate and clean
Huehuetenango is the highest and driest of Guatemala's non-volcanic regions. This renowned region owes much to the dry, hot winds that come in from the mountains of Mexico's Tehuantepec plain. The additional heat layers protect Huehuetenango from frost and enable coffee to grow at altitudes of 2,000 masl. Due to the high altitude, nearly all of Huehuetenango's producers process their own coffee. Fortunately, the region has rivers and streams in abundance, so mills can be placed almost anywhere..
