In 2013 Monpi Coffee Exports Ltd took control of the Ulya Mill in the heart of Waghi Valley. The relatively high altitude and cooler climate of this area is ideal for the cultivation of high-quality coffee. The old Ulya Plantation (well over 200 ha and still privately owned) located immediately next to the mill is still going strong and supplies a high quality product to the mill that has seen a major overhaul under Monpi Management in 2014. With an expansion of milling capacity, a brand new wet-milling line, and a state of the art waste water processing plant, the mill is able to offer the best possible processing environment from harvest till final green bean exports.
