Papua New Guinea Coffee - straight from our heart
Our history in dealing with fine-quality PNG coffees goes way back to 1992.
I was visiting the amazing highland coffee plantations of PNG, tasting wild-grown coffees that were off-the-scale brilliant.
For sure, Papua New Guinea is our true coffee soul mate.
So we don't hold back.....no way.
Our Papua New Guinea coffees are a true work of art.
It's amazing and delicious in ways we can't describe.
Think of Papua New Guinea as our trademark or signature - our Carlini Coffee fingerprint.

How we roast your coffee
Twenty years of roasting every weekday, 51 weeks a year. Many batches and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market. The same person who roasts that very first batch is the same person who roasts every batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.
Roasting coffee has never been about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. Nope, to roast and understand the roasting process, it is all about practice, practice and more practice. There are no shortcuts, innovative tools, or systems to help jump ahead of the competition.
It's how we can produce Australia's best-tasting and most consistent coffee. Match that with superior quality ingredients, the most advanced infrastructure, and mature processes; you have the solution for great-tasting coffee. We roast to target sweetness, acidity, flavour, body and finish to generate the best possible balance across all those competing elements.
Our espresso style is a medium roast suitable for premium cafes that care about quality. Filter-style roasts are lighter to meet the demands of modern alternative brewing methods to retain fruit-forward complexity.
What is most important?
The answer is that they all are. It didn't take a pandemic to learn why speed, freshness, quality and value are all equally important.
Heck no. We worked that out in 2007 as the original pioneer of online premium quality fresh roasted coffees to Australian coffee lovers.
We get it. Running out of coffee is a nightmare scenario nobody wishes to experience. With 16 years and almost 1 million successful parcel deliveries under our belts, we know a thing or two about what it takes to run a high-performance and high-speed coffee supply operation.
To ensure our coffees are crazy fresh, barely hours old when they ship out the door, it requires significant scale and resources working rapidly to roast, pack, label, grind, parcel and ship. It's an eco-system we have continued to build and optimize for 16 years, measuring our performance in minutes, not hours and days, like some of our competitors.
Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we assure you of our commitment to ship freshly roasted coffees prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.
Having read many coffee blogs, they often point to PNG as having some of the most desirable attributes in coffee. So I thought why not give that a try and bought 3 different PNG coffees from suppliers in Australia. The first 2 were rather disappointing, one was not fresh, the other seemed to be over-roasted with dark and black oily beans. Imagine my delight when the Carlini PNG coffee arrived smelling amazing, looking perfectly roasted medium. Then the taste. Wow, it was delicious. On a scale of 1 to 10, the other suppliers were lucky to score 4 whilst Carlini scored 10. As I have only tried the PNG so far with Carlini, I can't comment on their other coffees, but take it from me, for PNG this is the best in Australia by a long margin.
When I look at the offers from coffee suppliers, Carlini is cheaper than most. This raises a degree of doubt in my mind about taste and quality. Sure, it becomes a risk for first time purchase. But let me tell you these guys invented the online coffee market long ago, they have been roasting since 2007 and know how to make a great quality coffee. Contrast that with so many new brands available who have been operating for a year or less. No contest.
We continue to buy from Carlini because their coffees are such good quality, the freshness is clearly evident and the price or value is unbeatable. Keep up the good work.
I've purchased coffee from most of the big brands, or I should say highly regarded brands. Then we have this brand called Carlini which totally flies under the radar. No social media, no hyped up promises. So I think maybe their coffee is middle of the road. The curiosity gets the better of me and I place an order for a PNG. Goodness me, what a revelation. These dudes know coffee, not only is it high quality but roasted perfectly and super fresh. What a revelation.
Sometimes a coffee is so balanced and perfect you can't accurately describe it's attributes. This is one of those coffees, sublime.
