Mount Hagen

Mount Hagen, city: Located in Papua New Guinea. It is the capital of the Western Highlands province in the interior of the country. As of 2009, its population was estimated at 39,000. It lies at approximately 5500 feet above sea level near Mount Wilhelm (14,800 feet above sea level). The cultivation of tea and coffee plays a major role in the city. The province belonged to the German New Guinea colony. The capital was named after the German colonial officer Curt von Hagen. We started the world’s first organic coffee nearby here in 1984. It was a very exciting time and a very ambitious project that was ultimately so successful that we were able to make a brand out of it: “Mount Hagen”. Coffee for Connoisseurs. By the way, today we import almost 100% of our organic fair trade Arabicas from Papua New Guinea.
