Statement of Commitment to Organic Coffee

ORGANICArabica.coffee has traveled to islands and farmers across Melanesian archipelago and have seen various Melanesian coffee farmers being told what they call “good practices of planting coffees”. Most of them were taught how to clear the forests and spread fertilizers and pesticides, as if, we Melanesians did not know from our ancestors how to plant such a tree.

ORGANICArabica.coffee in West Papua do not follow such a practice. We practice our own practice of planting trees. We select places where we know coffee can grow, we even plant new trees that we know well will protect the soil and the coffee grow well. We plant our coffees in our own tribal lands. We do not have “coffee estate” or coffee industrial farm or complex.

ORGANICArabica.coffee know that the path towards organic coffee planting is not that easy nowadays, firstly because  the amount of coffee beans produced is less that the product of those who spread fertilizers and pesticides. However, we are sure, both from our ancestors and from various studies and reports that organic farming is the only way forward for a healthy life, i.e., balanced, joyful, and harmonious life, the kind of life we Melanesians inherited from our old generations.

We as coffee growers, producers and traders in Melanesia are now standing up facing the markets that disregard healthy, harmonious, joyful and sustainable living.

Our Target Customers

ORGANICArabica.coffee invites individuals and families who understand and want to live healthy and leave this planet earth inhabitable to our future generations to support us by buying our organic Coffees from Melanesian regions: East Timor, Nusa Tenggara, New Guinea, Kanaky and Vanuatu.
