In collaboration with Davines, Caffe Vita presents this exclusive roast from the YUS Conservation Area of Papua New Guinea. YUS is an acronym of Yopno, Uruwa, and Som, the three main rivers that flow through the rugged and remote Huon Peninsula. This coffee was grown under native shade in the gardens of those who have pledged their land for conservation.
Caffe Vita has been working hand in hand with the farmers of YUS to improve quality and bring this amazing coffee to market. The land of YUS is ideally suited for cultivation with its altitude, rich organic soil, heirloom varietals, and tropical climate. The challenge has been to refine processing methods, create better drying conditions, and ultimately find a way to transport the coffee from the isolated mountains of YUS to our roasting facility in Seattle, Washington.
Through this process we have been warmly welcomed into the YUS community. It is an honor and privilege to roast this remarkable coffee and share in creating a better future for their families and the conservation of their land.
