Papua New Guinea A/X has to be one of my personal favorite coffees to drink.
Send your taste buds on a journey to paradise with every sip of this tropical bliss. Papua New Guinea coffee is highly prized for its complex, full flavors thanks to the rich soils and idyllic growing conditions.
Our Papua New Guinea A/X coffee is curated from family-owned farms organized around the Highlands Organic Agriculture Cooperative (HOAC) located in the Okapa district within the province of Eastern Highlands, Papua New Guinea. HOAC members come from a number of different indigenous groups including the North Fore and South Fore, tribes that have come together in HOAC despite a long history of conflict. HOAC accesses the international coffee markets for farmers to have greater earning capacity from direct trade relationships. HOAC has also invested in coffee processing equipment to improve quality, and infrastructure projects to improve roads, access to potable water, and build schools in rural communities.
Order yours today. It will be roasted in the morning and shipped in the afternoon.

Probably the most common reason why people love coffee is because they want the caffein boost to keep them awake. While others enjoy wrapping their hands around a warm aromatic brew while they socialize for friends. For me, it's different. But before I tell you why I love coffee, let me tell you more about me. I'm Rose Pasden. I'm a coffee farmer who learned coffee farming in the jungles of the Philippines. Because of my grades, I was sent off to further my education, and eventually I became a nurse, a wife, and a mommy.
Living our family life in the city may seem nice to most, but something was calling me back to the deep jungles. No, it wasn't a telephone call from mom, but rather an instinctual feeling. Fortunately, I have an adventurous husband, so we packed a few things for our trek - to the mythical jungles of Leyte. Leyte is where I'm from, and the ancestral home of my tribe.
Boats, 4x4s, and Lots of Hiking
24 hours later we make it to our village. We enjoy a wonderful dinner, homemade coconut wine, and lots of stories before heading to our hut for the night. The next morning I hear my grandfather's whistling, and I go out to join him by the river. He knew I would join him. He looks down at me and smiles. He puts a baby coffee plant in my hand and says, "In your hands is the Power, Strength, Health, and Nature's Life. Protect and grow the coffee bean. It is my gift to you." Today we have thousands of coffee plants where we are growing some of the world's highest scoring coffees - consistently 95% or higher.
Who doesn't like a good cup of coffee?
I know I have had some coffee that has tasted so bad that I had to spit it out. Unfortunately, what some people drink is coffee that is not harvested properly. Lots of coffee companies just want beans. They also want cheap beans.
So what do they do?
They tell their farmers to just pick them all - some are ripe, but most are pre-ripe. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever eaten a piece of fruit that wasn't ripe. It's yucky, right? Me personally, I don't want to even put it in my mouth.
Great Coffee Beans Make Great Coffee
I was only taught to pick the coffee when it was perfectly right - bright red and it feels good. If it looks good, and it feels good, then it will taste good. This is why great coffee beans make great coffee.
Carrying on Tradition for Today's and Tomorrow's Coffee Lovers
A great coffee is like a great wine, or a craft beer. It has aroma, flavors, and body that is beyond any other. Because I grew up growing coffee, I know what it takes to make a great tasting coffee - and I want to share it with the World, and we want to keep it going for future coffee drinkers. This is why we proudly grow, support and curate Ethically Traded coffee - so farmers around the world will continue to grow and harvest coffee the consistently scores 95% or higher.
Our coffee tastes better, it's more flavorful, and I think I'm worth the extra effort for a great cup of coffee.
Join Us. Join our Tribe. Follow us and visit us. We are proud of what we do and the people lives that we improve. Going Native Coffee is more than coffee. It's a great tasting brew that effects lives around the world in so many positive ways. This is why I love our coffee.
I hope we get a chance to meet to share a cup of coffee and talk about life and adventures.

Hi and thank you for your question, “Why don’t more people use a Moka Coffee maker rather than coffee capsules (given that moka coffee is much cheaper thank plastic pod cups of coffee)?” I can’t be for certain, but personally think this is for 2 reasons:
- Basketball included everyone. Find an open lot, put a hoop on some spare boards, hang it on a tree, find a basketball (or make a ball), and you have a game. Even though it is a competitive sport, everyone is invited to play (at least 1 quarter).
- There are 4 quarters in each game. The coaches play the appropriate skill levels in each quarter. This creates competitive opportunities and sportsmanship on all levels.
- It's Co-ed. No gender bias.
- It's competitive and filled with unbelievable talent for people of such a young age.
- Excellent sportsmanship, No whining, and Friendship prevails throughout the league.
I didn't think a Beauty Pageant was a sport, but she told me how competitive the girls are and how much they workout, that locals consider beauty pageants a sport. Hmmm? Nevertheless, let's get back to Filipino Basketball.
We live near the basketball court, so we can hear the kids at 6am practicing their shooting and 1-on-1 ball handling skills. They are excited to play in these games because it allows them to be challenged by other barangays, and they have an opportunity to win a trophy and other prizes. (6am B-ball doesn't bother us because we are up at the crack of dawn).
This weekend, our Barangay (Filipino Village) in Hinaguman is having their annual fiesta. Before the fiesta (festival) begins, the barangay sponsors a basketball tournament with the local kids and adult teams. When I attended my first game a few years ago, I didn't expect much. But these kids are awesome! Ball handling, plays down the court, vision down the court & passing, shooting and rebounding. It's very physical and the maturity level is beyond what I could ever have imagined. (Oh, did I imagine that some of these kids are playing barefoot or in rubber slippers?)
Can you imagine how this will make a barefoot kid feel when they get a uniform, or a pair of shoes? It's going to be an emotional moment and a proud moment for, not on the player, but also the family. Strive for greatness. Strive to be beyond what you think you can be.
If you want to attend the basketball game & the fiesta, let us know so you can join us for the celebration. Send us an email at PiliNutFarms@Gmail.com.
If you can't attend, but you want to help, then let us know how you want to help by sending us an email at PiliNutFarms@Gmail.com.

I wish it had only been a pipe. Instead it was a deep well pump & a pressure pump... and pipes.
At 3pm on a Friday, Rose and I are away from the house to pick up our daughter from school when we get a text message:
It translates to 'Water pipes broken. Pumps broken. No water.'
Rose looks at me and asks, 'What should we do?'
'Since you are the contractor for our house, who do you suggest?'
Minutes later she is calling people. No answer. So she starts texting a distress signal (It's wise to send a text message here, because nobody has voicemail on their phones).
That evening after dinner, we still haven't heard back from anyone so we begin contemplating where we are going to wash our dishes. Option are:
- The ocean
- The swimming pool
- Our neighbors house
While doing the dishes, we get a call from the best plumber in the populated area. He tells us he can make it on Saturday. Whew, this is good news! (but in my mind, I am wondering how expensive it is going to be because it will be 'Weekend Rates').
Saturday comes and goes. It's not fixed. Ugh!#%@. So we wash our dishes and bathe in the driveway using our neighbor's hose. Sometimes you do what you need to do. Fortunately, I have a great family with a sense of humor, so the bathing goes off well... even with the live in staff present - our nanny and housekeeper.
The plumbers arrive bright and early. Rose and I are still asleep.
'Sir? Ma'm? Breakfast is ready,' and Rose & I get out of bed. 'The plumbers are here.'
Rose & I meet with the mud covered plumbers.
'Ma'm, we need supplies. I am going to send 1 person to get more pipe and supplies. Is this agreeable with you?' (My gosh, our plumber is so polite).
One of the plumbers drives off to get supplies while the other 2 labor away.
Two people come back carrying supplies (20 foot long pipes and additional supplies) on the back of a motorcycle. (By the way... doing this on a motorcycle is normal here). I do admire the work ethic of our plumbers.
'We should be done later today. Then you can bathe in your own home. Is tonight acceptable to you?'
Of course we agree (because we don't want to wash in the driveway again using the cold hose water).
'Since this is agreeable to you, can I ask you a favor? Can you feed us some lunch? we don't have any food with us'.
Immediately we provide lunch, drinks and coffee (it's beginning to rain and they are working outside).
'Ma'm, can I speak to you? We completed the work. You have water again'. And he hands Rose a hand written invoice.
'Are you serious? This is expensive!' Rose complains. 'For 2 days and materials, you are charging me this amount? This is rediculous!'
Rose shows me the invoice.
'Pay the men. They earned it'.
Rose reluctantly pays the men, and stomps her feet as she returns to the house. The plumbers ride away on their motorcycles in the dark. Rose looks at me, 'Hurray, we can take a shower! Do you want to join me?'
I smile as she runs off to the shower with our daughter. 'Yippee!'
So, What is the Cost of a Plumber working on the Weekend in the Philippines? Let me say this was an eye opening experience. The plumbers arrived on a Saturday morning and worked all weekend. Even into the darkness of the night and mosquitos. When I saw the invoice, I was shocked. I was shocked because it was a fair price and very affordable. I didn't have to break the bank, and I will happily recommend these men to others in need of a plumber. Great work, Great service and a Great price.
I am so thankful that I chose to move here 12 years ago. Island Life is Awesome!
And so are the people who live here on this little island in the Philippines.
Today’s senior citizens living in the United States are generally referred to as the “Baby Boomers.” They were born after WWII starting around 1946 through the first years of the 1960s.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2013 came to the conclusion that Baby Boomers are sicker than their parents’ generation, in spite of advances in medicine and longer life spans. “Despite their longer life expectancy over previous generations, U.S. baby boomers have higher rates of chronic disease, more disability and lower self-rated health than members of the previous generation at the same age,” wrote the study’s authors, led by Dr. Dana E. King, professor and chair of family medicine at West Virginia University in Morgantown. 
Alzheimer’s Disease is a Modern Epidemic Plaguing SeniorsAlzheimer’s Disease is increasing at an alarming rate among the elderly population in the United States today. The statistics are staggering. According to the Alzheimer’s Association :
- More than 5 million Americans are living with the Alzheimer’s Disease.
- 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
- By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease may nearly triple
There are no Drugs that Cure Alzheimer’s DiseaseThe official statement from the medical establishment is: “Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s.” 
Pharmaceutical companies desperately want to develop an Alzheimer’s drug, since the market is so huge. Attempts to develop a drug have been a huge failure so far, however.
Melissa Healy of the LA Times reported on the most recent failures of Big Pharma to develop Alzheimer’s drugs earlier in 2014:
Two biological therapies designed to improve the clearance of sticky plaques from the brains of those with Alzheimer’s disease have failed to slow the steady loss of cognitive function in patients with mild to moderate forms of the degenerative disorder.
In late clinical-trial findings published [recently] in the New England Journal of Medicine, the monoclonal antibodies known as solanezumab and bapineuzumab were shown ineffective at changing the downward cognitive trajectory of Alzheimer’s patients. 
These recent failures follow a long list of drug failures in the pharmaceutical industry’s attempt to develop drugs to treat Alzheimer’s Disease. Drug companies Pfizer and Medivation abandoned their Alzheimer’s drug dimebon in January 2012, because the drug not only did not help patients in trials, but it made patients worse. The expensive drug had already reached phase III trials. 
'Old People' are a Huge Market for Pharmaceutical Drugs
Today’s senior citizens living in managed care facilities are taking an average of over 30 different prescription drugs! The pharmaceutical industry has good reason to target seniors, as they represent the most lucrative market for pharmaceutical drugs in the history of mankind. In the history of drug marketing, the single most successful drug to ever hit the market was a drug targeted at seniors: Lipitor, the statin drug designed to lower cholesterol levels.
Today, about one out of every four Americans over the age of 55 is taking a statin drug (Statins Fry Your Brain and Scramble Your Memory Like an Egg). So this age group is a very lucrative market for the pharmaceutical companies, who would desperately like to have an Alzheimer’s drug or vaccine be approved for sale.
Are Pharmaceutical Drugs a Leading Cause of Alzheimer’s Disease?A recent study just published in the British Medical Journal reports that taking benzodiazepines, common drugs prescribed for anti-anxiety and insomnia, are associated with a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Common benzodiazepines include: Valium (diazepam), Ativan (lorazepam), Xanax (alprazolam) and Klonopin (clonazepam). The authors of the study reported in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that the use of benzodiazepines for three months or more was associated with a 51% increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. 
In an accompanying commentary written by Zosia Kmietowicz, it was pointed out that in 2012 the American Geriatrics Society had updated its list of inappropriate drugs for older people to include benzodiazepines, precisely because of their unwanted cognitive side effects. Yet almost half of the elderly population continues to be prescribed these dangerous medications, and are continuing to take them. 
In another article appearing with the BMJ study, Michael McCarthy discusses another study just published in JAMA Internal Medicine. This study shows that more than half of patients with advanced dementia in US nursing homes are prescribed medicines of questionable benefit. 
In 2011, Dr. Stephanie Seneff published research looking at the effects of a low-fat diet and statin drugs in relation to Alzheimer’s Disease. This research noticed a strong correlation between insulin resistance in the brain and early Alzheimer’s Disease.
The study’s main conclusions regarding the early causes of Alzheimer’s Disease centered around the transport of cholesterol from the blood stream to the brain. The research stated that there is mounting evidence which suggests that a defect in cholesterol metabolism in the brain may play an important role in Alzheimer’s Disease. A nice summary of the brain’s dependency on cholesterol is given:
The brain represents only 2% of the body’s total mass, but contains 25% of the total cholesterol. Cholesterol is required everywhere in the brain as an antioxidant, an electrical insulator (in order to prevent ion leakage), as a structural scaffold for the neural network, and a functional component of all membranes. Cholesterol is also utilized in the wrapping and synaptic delivery of the neurotransmitters. It also plays an important role in the formation and functioning of synapses in the brain. 
They point to several studies showing that there is a lack of cholesterol in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients which is so vital for several functions, and also note that other studies show this cholesterol deficiency in dementia and Parkinson’s disease as well. In contrast, high cholesterol levels are positively correlated with longevity in people over 85 years old, and in some cases has been shown to be associated with better memory function and reduced dementia. 
In 2012, another study looked at the effects of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs on Alzheimer’s patients. The patients in the study had their statin medication stopped for six weeks, and then restarted. The results showed that during the six weeks when their statins were stopped, the basic brain function of the individuals improved. When the drugs were restarted, brain function got worse again. 
So if statin cholesterol-lowering drugs are part of the problem in causing Alzheimer’s Disease, should we really depend upon pharmaceutical companies to develop drugs to cure Alzheimer’s?
Alzheimer’s Disease is a Type 3 DiabetesAs Dr. Stephanie Seneff noted in her work (referenced above), there is a strong correlation between insulin resistance in the brain and Alzheimer’s. This observation corresponds with what other studies have discovered about Alzheimer’s Disease and insulin resistance. As early as 2008 researchers were beginning to classify Alzheimer’s Disease as a “type 3” diabetes. 
Similar research was published in 2012 at Rhode Island Hospital by Suzanne de la Monte, M.D. Dr. Monte found a link between brain insulin resistance and two other key mediators of neuronal injury that help Alzheimer’s Disease to progress, lending further evidence that Alzheimer’s is a type 3 diabetes. 
Type 3 diabetes, much like type 2 diabetes, can be controlled by lifestyle and diet. The primary cause of type 2 and type 3 diabetes today is a diet too high in refined carbohydrates. Refined carbohydrates are what have primarily replaced healthy saturated fats in modern times, after saturated fats were wrongly condemned as unhealthy in the 1970s.
Here in 2014 researchers are recommending that diabetes management begin with restricting carbohydrates through diet, rather than drugs.  Diabetes drugs have a terrible track record in the U.S., with some being pulled off the market due to serious side effects.  A recent study published by JAMA concluded that insulin may do more harm than good in treating type 2 diabetes, and even potentially accelerate death. 
For some people, coconut oil has proven to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and may have even prevented it (or reversed Alzheimer's Disease).
One of those people is Steve Newport, whose Alzheimer’s has slowed considerably. Some of his symptoms even reversed, thanks to the unlikely treatment prescribed by his wife, Dr. Mary Newport, a physician who runs a neonatology ward at a Tampa, Fla., hospital (see video below).
You will see that Alzheimer's is considered Type 3 Diabetes. So keep in mind: 'Does what you eat affect Alzheimer's ~ your health'.
However, if we look at Alzheimer’s Disease as a “type 3″ diabetes and as an insulin resistance problem, coconut oil makes a lot of sense, as does a ketogenic high-fat diet. Coconut oil is known as a rich source of ketone energy, supplying an alternate form of energy to the brain. In fact, pharmaceutical companies are currently trying to develop drugs that mimic the same “ketonic” effect that can be achieved via a high-fat diet in order to treat Alzheimer’s. 
Also, if the brain is being starved of cholesterol, coconut oil might provide benefits by increasing HDL cholesterol levels. A study appearing in the American Journal of Cardiology in February 2011 showed that the higher men’s HDL cholesterol levels, the longer they lived and the more likely it was that they would reach the age of 85. 
Today, the ketogenic diet principles of a high-fat low-carb diet are becoming popular once again. The ketogenic principles can be seen in recent diet fads, such as the Atkins Diet and the Paleo Diet. Since the original name was the ketogenic diet, and because some of the fad diets do differ on some points, I will continue to use the term ketogenic diet.
(NOTE: Pili Nuts are known as a Ketogenic Diet and Paleo Diet Superfood)
With the rise of diabetes, and recognizing that many modern diseases can be linked to an overconsumption of refined carbohydrates, particularly in the form of refined sugars, the ketogenic diet is being used and studied with diseases linked to insulin resistance, and this includes Alzheimer’s.
Here is an excellent video with a round table discussion with 5 medical doctors and two nutritionists discussing the low-carb high-fat diet and coconut oil in relation to treating Alzheimer’s Disease, and the absurdity of current Alzheimer’s expenditures in the health care system that threatens to bankrupt our country. One of the doctors has worked in nursing homes for over 35 years. 
I watched this and told my wife that it couldn’t hurt to try. Especially when we have thousands of coconuts growing on our farm amongst our Pili Nut trees (Pili Nuts is a known a low carb/high protein that many people eat when on a Diet for Diabetics).

THE KETOGENIC DIET - ALSO KNOWN AS A LOW CARB HIGH FAT IS A HIGH-FAT, MODERATE-PROTEIN, LOW-CARBOHYDRATE DIET THAT TURNS THE BODY INTO A FAT-BURNING MACHINE. IT HAS MANY BENEFITS SUCH AS WEIGHT LOSS, HEALTH AND PHYSICAL & MENTAL PERFORMANCE. (Consult your physician for details and to see if this is right for you).
On a ketogenic diet your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat rather than carbohydrates. Insulin levels become very low and fat burning increases dramatically. It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off.
Your carb sources should primarily come from vegetables, pili nuts and diary. All Carbohydrates higher in carb grams must be eliminated from your daily meal consumption to reach “Ketosis”.
WHAT IS KETOSIS
The “keto” in the word ketosis comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”. This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply.
Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can be converted to blood sugar).
Ketones are produced in the liver, from fat. They are then consumed as fuel in the body, including by the brain. This is important as the brain is a hungry organ that consumes lots of energy every day and it can’t run on fat directly. It can only run on glucose or ketones (the brain absorbs ketones easily).
It’s a common misconception that the brain needs carbs. The truth is that the brain happily burns carbs when you eat them. But if you don’t eat too many carbs, the brain is happy to burn ketones instead.
This is an absolutely necessary function for basic survival. As the body can only store carbs for a day or two, the brain would quickly shut down after a couple of days without food. Alternatively it would quickly have to convert our muscle protein into glucose – a very inefficient process – just to keep the brain going. That would make us waste away quickly. It would also ensure that the human race could hardly have survived all those millennia before we had 24-7 food availability.
Fortunately our bodies have evolved to be smarter than that. Normally we have fat stores that last so that we can survive for many weeks (if not months) without food. Ketosis is how the body makes sure that the brain can run on those fat stores too.
Bottom line: We do not need to eat any carbs at all. The brain can happily run on fat.
Many people even feel more energized and focused when the brain gets to run on ketones, made from fat. And it certainly speeds up fat loss, if you’re trying to lose weight.

There are many benefits of ketosis. The most common ones:
- Increase your mental endurance
- Increase your physical endurance
- Burning fat / weight loss
- Reverse type 2 diabetes
- Control epilepsy – often even without drugs
- Less acne
- Normalize blood pressure
- Calm stomach
- Less sugar cravings
WHAT DO I EAT TO REACH KETOSIS?
The most important thing to reach ketosis is to keep your carbohydrates limited, coming mostly from vegetables, low carb pili nuts, and some dairy. It is highly recommended to keep your carb intake below 20g per day.
Your nutrient intake (macros) should be more or less around 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrate. The more fat the easier it is to reach and stay in ketosis.
This means you’ll need to completely avoid sweet sugary foods, plus starchy foods like bread, pasta, rice and potatoes
A serving of Pili Nuts is the perfect snack if you’re feeling hungry during the day.
