Speaker 1: So, what do we got here?
Speaker 2: Welcome to what we lovingly refer to as Willy Wonka because a lot of magical
things happen here. This is actually where we roast the beans from Papua New Guinea.
This is a special roaster. It literally takes the beans to their optimum roast by extracting
the essential oils where the properties are. The actual beans are green. We get them directly
from Papua New Guinea. This happens to be a really nice example because
these are very special beans. These are pea berries. This happens when only one bean gets
fertilized in the cherry. It actually goes rounded. Only one bean is fertilized, so one
bean is getting all the nutrient properties, so it actually has a higher potency, higher
nutritive value, higher detoxifying benefit, higher frequency. These beans get filled up
in here, go into the hopper, they drop into the roaster, they roast for approximately
14 minutes, and then they come out here perfectly roasted, and then they rotate. Cool air comes
up and cools them. When we have our freshly roasted beans, we package them fresh-to-order.
This is a unique company that we work with because they are stationed in Papua New Guinea.
However, they went there originally … Dr. Larry Howell went there originally, he’s a
MD, to set up a clinic for the local tribespeople. When he went there, he fell in love with the
people, fell in love with the land, and ended up buying this plantation to help support
the ecosystem there. That is their main export, is coffee. These tribespeople depend on this
economy. When he did that, he became what is called rain forest alliance certified,
which actually takes organic fair trade to another level. They’re actually giving back
more to the tribespeople. It’s this pristine tropical rain forest that
has pure oxygen, has mineral rich soil, no chemically amended soils, no pesticides. Plus,
energetically it’s taken to another level because this is all tribal coffee. This is
all made by the natives. That’s why it’s so special.
It’s actually kind of a funny story because this started when we were introduced to this
coffee and we were able to get a hold of some green beans. A friend of mine had a friend
through her preschool, our daughters went to preschool together, and they import coffee.
They were able to get me some Papua beans and I started roasting them in a cast iron
skillet, literally on my stove top. I would just roast them myself. We decided, okay,
we’re wasting a lot of the essential oils that way, so we invested in a roaster just
for our own home use. We vented it outside of our kitchen window. Here we are roasting
our coffee and our friends would stop by and have it and they loved it.
It started this sort of word of mouth. People started calling and say, Oh, so-and-so had
coffee at your house, can I get a pound? Can I get a pound? Can I get a pound? It started,
literally, this trend of people asking for the coffee. Little did we know, it would turn
into this demand and we ended up having to buy a bigger roaster. The bottom line is that
this coffee makes such a different because you have to taste it. Once you experience
it, you can never go back to regular coffee. That’s what happened. Our friends who love
coffee would taste it and say, Oh my gosh, I love it, but I feel so good afterwards.
It’s extraordinary, it’s exceptional, but most importantly you will love it because
it tastes so good. What happens when it goes into the body is
it has a chemical reaction in the body, much like citrus, like lemon is alkalizing. It
tastes acidic, but it has an alkalizing effect. You’re not getting the negative side effects
that regular coffee has. Regular coffee is dehydrating, which means that for every cup
of regular coffee you drink, you should be drinking two glasses of water to compensate.
This coffee does not dehydrate you. Another exceptional attribute to Papua coffee.
This is actually my Papua coffee which I roast myself. We do a little bit of sucanat in this,
which is … Sucanat is actually dehydrated cane juice. Choose your weapon.
Speaker 1: This is delightful. Speaker 2: It’s important to take what you
take into the body to another level.
