Baroida Estate is run by Nicol Colbran, whose father founded the plantation in the 1960's. Over the decades the Colbrans have become renowned for producing some of the highest quality coffees in Papua New Guinea. Situated at 1,691 meters above sea level, the 220 hectare farm resides in the fertile Eastern Highlands of the island. 

The name ‘Baroida’ comes from the Baroida spirit, believed by locals to reside in a large river rock sitting in one of the main rivers flowing through the estate. This particular rock has stubbornly remained in the middle of the river for as long as anybody can remember, refusing to budge through the most severe floods, even when other rocks have been washed away.

Meticulous separation for quality control helps maintain the high quality of the estate’s coffee. After careful sorting, cherry is pulped on disk pulpers. Then, it dry-ferments in vats for approximately 36 hours. Water is pumped into the vats in a circular motion to naturally agitate the coffee and remove any remaining mucilage. Coffee is then sundried on tarps, where it is turned regularly to ensure even drying.

This is a coffee that is all about dense sweetness and balance in the cup. The acidy and mouthfeel are both rich and coating, with flavors of macadamia nut, nougat, coconut, caramel, white grape, cane sugar, and nutmeg mingling together quite nicely. 

Don't own a grinder? Don't own a good grinder? Not a problem, let us expertly grind the coffee for you depending on the method with which you brew.
