Baroida Estate

The Baroida plantation sits at the apex of the Lamari river valley and Mount Jabarra range. The plantation itself sits at about 1,700 to 1,850 meters above sea level amongst thousands of hectares of cleared land with former colonial coffee estates surrounding them (now run by native landowners) and flanked by mountains filled with smallholder coffee producers who cultivate close to a million trees.  

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