The Ti Aura Womens Coffee Group was established in 2021 by Ms Ellise George. Ellise's coffee journey is an interesting one as she originally graduated from the University of Goroka in 2007 with a diploma in early childhood learning. With very little opportunity of employment in Goroka, Ellise and her friend, Smith Omeau, set up a charity school for orphaned children. Within the first year they had 25 children attend and by the second year the numbers grew to 53. The school was funded by the generosity of local people and the business community. Unfortunately her friend and co-worker Smith contracted cancer in their second year and was unable to teach. The treasurer then misused some of the funds and the school had to close. Devastated but determined Ellise moved on and got a job working in the quality control department at our sister company Monpi Coffee Exports. Here she was taught all facets of coffee quality control from purchasing to export. She was an active member of the liquoring team, learnt stock control and the importance of stock rotation. After a couple of years in this position Ellise wanted to try to build a business on her own.

In 2021 Ellise decided to stay in the coffee industry and set up an export company called PAX. Her new business is based around the network of women producers she's made over the years at Monpi. She now has set up supply agreements with several groups of women who are involved in coffee but none of them have been able to export directly. Ellise sees this as an opportunity to empower women to not only obtain better prices but improve their livelihoods in the process.
