Ben Colbran founded Baroida Estate in 1965 when the government of Papua New Guinea began encouraging the settlers of the area to grow coffee as a sustainable crop with long-term potential. Successive members of the family have managed the farm, which sits between 1600 and 1850 meters above sea level. In 2005 Chris, Ben’s grandson, moved back to the farm to oversee several projects, but it wasn’t until 2010 that the quality of the coffee as truly discovered by the outside world. In that year the family began exporting their own coffee – not allowing it to be blended – and took the process into their own hands, thereby allowing the uniqueness of the origin to be expressed.
