This fully washed coffee is processed through the Sero Bebes washing station in the Obura Wononara district. The station is owned by Sero Bebes, hence the name. In addition to buying cherry from the surrounding areas that are processed in the mill, Mr. Bebes also owns a 34 hectare plantation of his own. He has been managing the washing station since 2010. The grading system in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is based on screen or bean size with the A being a 17/18, X being 15/16, and Y being smaller than a 15. This particular coffee is an A/X meaning you will find beans that range in size from 15-18. This range in size in this instance translates to a dynamic range of flavor. The coffee is a blend of the Arusha, Typica, and Bourbon cultivars, Arusha being a variety unique to PNG.*
