Located in the Eastern Highland Province, Chauve District of Papua New Guinea, the Keto Tapasi Progress Association currently consists of 3,000 smallholder farmers from 18 villages and eight clan groups.
Keto Tapasi has overcome many cultural and territorial obstacles, as well as language barriers between tribes, to build an organization with agreed-upon production and quality standards — resulting in a world-class specialty coffee.
Watch Russell Poka, the Association Chairperson, explain why buying organic fair-trade coffee from Papua New Guinea is so important.
