Papua New Guinea Baroida Estate


butterscotch, cherry, brazil nut


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag:


A fifty-year-old family farm, Baroida Estate is owned and operated by the Colbran family, whose constant quest for improvement has elevated their coffee from the common, bulk-blended for export regional lots of coffee to today’s specialty-quality estate selections, all within the constraints of a volatile, but beautiful landscape. Our Director of Sourcing, Ed Kaufmann, fell in love with this coffee for its consistently complex presentation and vibrancy. This unique Papua New Guinean coffee has a rich, molasses-like foundation layered with tropical fruit flavors and a caramel sweetness.

At the Source

The Colbran family’s attention to constant quality drives their growing and milling operations. The ripest cherries are picked, then depulped on the farm’s site using disc depulpers, fermented for 36 hours, and dried on tarps. In the event that tarp drying is hampered by weather conditions, mechanical dryers are used to ensure the coffee is maintained at the highest quality.

The Colbran family also purchases cherries from smallholder farmers in surrounding areas, processes them at Baroida Estate, and helps sell these coffees on their behalf, all of which acts to promote and support the region as an increasingly respected center of quality coffee production. We so admire the work being done at Baroida Estate that we at Joe have purchased their coffee every year that we’ve been roasting—to us, this coffee is like an old friend.
