This cacao is grown at Barbara and Paul Goodyear’s Kulkul Plantation, on the slopes of the actively volcanic Karkar Island, where it is intercropped with coconut.
Karkar Island is located about 30km off the north coast of Papua New Guinea, it is both one of the most fertile locations in the country, and also one of the most active volcanoes. The 1831m volcano last erupted in 2013, and also had major eruptions in the 1970’s. A single road that runs the entire length of the island which is 25km long and 19km wide, and has a population of approximately 70,000.
The Goodyear family have a long history on the island and connection with the community. Barbara and Paul have developed their own unique tasting Trinitario varieties over many years.
We purchase the beans directly from Barbara and Paul, and they get transported by boat to the mainland.
