Baroida Estate is located in the Kainantu District, Eastern Highlands Province. The estate was founded by Ben Colbran in the 1960’s when the Government encouraged foreign agriculturalists to begin cultivating land throughout the highlands. Ben first purchased the land from a native man named Taro and was amongst the first farmer to cultivate coffee in these valleys. Today, Ben’s son Nicol runs the plantation.
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.
The Baroida plantation sits at the apex of the Lamari river valley and Mount Jabarra range. The plantation itself sits at about 1,691 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 small holder coffee producers who cultivate close to a million trees
Shoondhisa Ethiopia Natural
Origin - Sookoo Coffee, Shakiso, Guji, Ethiopia
Variety - Serto (74110) & Gibrinna (74112)
Altitude - x masl
Tasting Notes - Strawberry, Violet, Lavender and Nectarine
Last year was our first time buying the Shoondhisa, and it was clear early on it was going to be a staple for us.
This is our second time buying from Ture Waji, owner of Sookoo coffee, via our import partner Osito.
Sookoo coffee's first client and partner was in fact Osito, and they have a very close working relationship.
Since the price for cherries is quite stable in Ethiopia, the difference in the coffee prices from the country comes from the steps exporters take after the cherries were bought. And Ture Waji is renowned for his meticulous process and high quality coffee.
Some will do minimal work and sell ''typical'' naturals, and other like Ture will produce a stellar product.
Shoondhisa is one of the cleanest natural Ethiopian we know and we are happy to have it on your menu year round.
Its floral and fruity tone finishes in a subtle honey like sweetness. It's a beautiful coffee.
Churupampa Peru Washed
Origin - Farmers from Chota, Cajamarca, San Ignacio, Peru
Variety - Bourbon, Caturra, Typica
Altitude - 1600 - 1800 masl
Tasting Notes - Mango, Cocoa Butter, Cranberry, Brazil Nuts
Finally: our first Peruvian coffee! It took us a while to have one on our menu as timing was never quite right in between harvests. We were also looking for a specific profile, and we found it!
Peru offers a wide variety of tasting experiences, but we were on the look-out for a coffee that hits all the classic notes like chocolate, nuts and a thick mouthfeel, while also keeping it lively with a tropical undertone.
This lot from around the city of Chota, and processed by the people of Finca Churupampa, delivers a super clean coffee full of cocoa butter and Brazil nuts, with an acidity reminiscent of mango.
The perfect everyday coffee.
This is a community lot from Northern Peru where farmers deliver their parchment to Finca Churupampa in Chirinos where the team there, along with Red Beetle Coffee Lab, analyse samples and build lots.
Cajamarca is still a pretty unknown region for specialty buyers, but the high elevation (up to 2300masl) and unique climate makes for a bright future.
