Tastes like: genmaicha, stone fruit, baking spices
Baroida Estate is possibly the oldest coffee estate in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Purchased in1963 by Kiwi immigrant Ben Colbran, initially Baroida produced mostly quick cash crops like strawberries, cabbage, and broccoli. However, by ‘65 Ben had realized his dream of growing coffee and quickly established himself as a pioneer of quality coffee in the Eastern Highlands. Eventually, Ben would sell the farm in 1979 and relocate to Australia, however his son Nichol decided to stick around and manage operations for the new owners. Eventually, in 1997, Nichol bought the farm back and continues to run the operation today, turning out world class coffee with a complex and bright flavor that is not often found in PNG. This particular coffee has a wonderfully earthy but sweet green tea flavor, reminiscent of a nice clean genmaicha, deep stone fruit sweetness, a juicy mouthfeel, and a lingering aftertaste of baking spices like allspice and mace. It’s pretty dang good tbh fam.

Approach - My approach to all Indonesian coffees is the same. I want to find a balance between sugary sweet roasty flavors, and the bright, spicy, earthy, complexities of the coffee’s terroir and varietal. With this delicious PNG, finding that balance is easy. We roast this coffee pretty light, showcasing a delightful stone fruit acidity, but we still manage to bring out a nice spice and chocolate finish that creates a very sweet, bright, and round cup. Baroida always produces coffees that are super complex and tasty, so as a roaster my goal is to just be nice and gentle, letting the work of the producers stand for itself.
