Pretty soon climate change could be leaving a bad taste in your mouth! ☕️As temperatures steadily rise in the coffee lands, coffee production has also been impacted. In places like Ethiopia, the increase in temperatures has caused the coffee plant cherries to ripen too quickly, which impacts the overall flavor of Ethiopian’s distinct and highly prized coffee beans. If that doesn’t sound bad enough, imagine what it is doing for the 16% of Ethiopia’s population whose primary income comes from coffee production. Yep, you read that correctly – 16% of the entire country’s population! Farmers, like Rahema Hussein, who smiles and serves the rewards of her coffee harvest in her hands. Climate change means Rahema has a lot less to smile about…and #thisiswhy Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Company is fighting to do something about it!

Next time you are cursing the traffic on the Mass Pike, imagine how long your commute would take if your roads...didn't exist. In most of the countries we visit, basic infrastructure - roads, power, water, sanitation, information and communication technology - is really poor or non-existent. Papua New Guinea is no exception - but this story has a happy (and delicious) ending!
.
One of the most painful problems faced by the farmers producing coffee in Papua New Guinea is the poor quality of basic infrastructure such as rural roads. This is largely due to the country's extremely rugged terrain. The lack of access to ports and transportation routes leads to unsold coffee remaining on the farms or left to rot away on airway strips. Farmers' livelihoods literally depends on safe passage to processing plants and airstrips.
.
Let's share a few statistics. Papua New Guinea has 12,179 miles of roads, of which 426 miles are paved (approximately 3.5% of the total). There are 492 airports, but only 19 have paved runways. Extreme weather, such as storms and floods means that roads and other infrastructure deteriorate quickly. Political disputes and corruption, leading to unnecessary infrastructure and the diversion of money away from useful projects, also contributes to the problem. There is also no rail system in the entire country.
.
#THISISWHY Dean's Beans Direct Development finds practical, farmer-driven solutions. We created a plan with our farmers, Tribal Aromas, a collective of small grower groups in the remote Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, to set up inexpensive hand depulping machines at each of the 14 airstrips in the Central Highlands where the farmers bring their coffee. Depulping at the site allows the farmers to begin processing their coffee and slows the fermentation rate (means better quality), as well as dropping 85% of the weight of the beans (less money for transportation). The result is higher quality beans with less overhead, meaning the farmer keeps more of the profit. You get to enjoy this great coffee in our popular Ring of Fire blend (along with dark-roasted Sumatran and Timor beans).
