Coffee Pacifica Announces Development of Agro-Ecological Zones for the Specialty Coffee Market.

LAS VEGAS -- Coffee Pacifica, Inc. (OTCBB:CFPC) announced today that to meet the market needs of the evolving specialty coffee market in the U.S. and Europe, its strategic partner, PNG Coffee Growers Federation Ltd. ("Federation"), has commenced identifying and mapping the coffee growing regions of PNG into several agro-ecological zones. This information will assist in tracing back all coffee produced to its original growing areas. The coffee produced from the agro-ecological zones will be marketed to the specialty coffee markets in the U.S. and Europe.

Mr. Jon Yogiyo, Vice Chairman of Coffee Pacifica, stated that: "The Federation is using the Papua New Guinea Resource Information System as a base to develop a coffee 'suitability map' and analyzing the information on altitudes, temperatures, annual rainfall, vegetation type, soil erodibility, forest type and land use in the coffee growing areas of Papua New Guinea. This information will assist to accurately establish the precise agro-ecological location of the co-operatives, the coffee growers, and the coffee farms."

Papua New Guinea Coffee Growers Federation Ltd. ("PNGCGF") is a strategic partner and a shareholder of Coffee Pacifica. PNGCGF's shareholders are co-operatives representing approximately 30,000 coffee growers organized in various co-operatives located throughout the coffee growing areas of PNG. The high quality premium-grade coffee produced by the co-operatives is pooled together by the PNGCGF and marketed by Coffee Pacifica.

Coffee Pacifica, Inc. is a distributor and marketer in the United States and Canada of green bean coffee grown in Papua New Guinea. Green bean coffee in Papua New Guinea is grown by Coffee Pacifica's shareholder-farmers in the Highland region's rich volcanic soils between the altitudes of 4,000 and 6,000 feet. Papua New Guinea coffee is well regarded by consumers for its uniqueness, consistency and special flavor characteristics. For more information about our coffee products, visit our website at
