Ulya is a centralized plantation mill which purchases cherry from smallholder farmers in the highlands. With central milling and drying, our partners on the ground control quality at the processing level — day lots are cupped and separated to build our containers and lots which are microlot worthy are processed separately.
The Ulya plantation is located next the Ulya Mill in the heart of the Waghi Valley.The high altitude and cooler climate at Ulya is ideal for quality coffee cultivation. The plantation supplies high quality cherries to be processed at the Ulya Mill, which has recently expanded its milling capacity, including a new wet-milling line, and waste water processing plant.
Ulya Mill also processes cherry from the surrounding coffee blocks of the Ulya Plantation. The beans have similar characteristics to the Ulya Plantation coffee. The coffee from this area is sold as a high end plantation style under the banner Ulya AX.
With certified Chain of Custody processed in place for the mill, Monpi guarantees traceability and quality of its Ulya beans.
