Papua New Guinea

Todd is on the hunt for a rare blue mountain coffee known for its cocoa flavor in Papua New Guinea. Todd travels the infamous Highlands Highway, a road known for hijackings, murders and potholes larger than his truck. Will he find a village that is organized enough, high enough, remote enough and talented enough to be growing one of the best specialty coffees in the world?
