Even though Papua New Guinea is currently part of Papua Island, it wasn't colonised until 1885, over two centuries after other islands. European powers, such as Germany and Great Britain, set up colonies in the North and in the South.
The Blue Mountain arabica plants were largely transported from Jamaica by these two powers, as opposed to employing the robusta plants that were prevalent all throughout Asia and the Pacific at this period. In the 1920s, commercial exports from coastal farms took off.
It wasn't until the 1930s, when an Australian prospector found that the island's interior was really highly productive and populous (they had previously believed it was too mountainous for cultivation and deserted), that coffee production exploded. Through its contacts with hitherto unknown tribes in the interior, the Papua government encouraged them to build family coffee "gardens."
