This coffee is the initiative of Moses Venapo, an entrepreneurial producer in the Easter Highlands, who wanted to offer local smallholders better access to higher market prices as well as a higher-traceability option.  Moses established a cherry-buying facility as well as installed a wet mill in his backyard in order to have more control over the purchasing and processing. The coffee is bought in cherry at a significant premium to the general market, and sorted carefully, providing farmers with feedback about best practices in picking.  This is a new, small project that so far serves around 50 smallholders within Moses' village and neighboring villages, but we see a lot of promise based on the cup quality.  Sugary sweetness and mouthfeel with notes of brown sugar, cocoa, and grapefruit.
