small-holder farmers of the Kamano tribal group, located
southwest of Kainantu in the hamlets surrounding Namura
town. The soils are are a mix of black & brownish red loam,
with predominately traditional typica grown under casuarina
and albizia shade trees. Average farm size is 1.4 hectares per
family, with adjacent gardens for cultivation of food crops such
as sweet potato, taro, and cassava. Farmers have received
training and assistance in financial management, gender equality,
coffee husbandry and standards for processing through local
partners. The harvest takes place from April through September,
with selective harvest of ripe cherry, manually pulping, fermentation
in traditional bilum bags, washing, and full sun-drying. In
2016, Timuza placed 1st in the National Cupping Competition
