Barbara Estate

About the Estate:

Baarbara Estate is run by the third generation of seasoned Chikmagalur coffee cultivators from the Indavra family that owns MG Plantations. The family has cultivated coffee for over 120 years and is deeply committed to sustainability with certifications by UTZ and the Rain Forest Alliance. 

The Arabica coffee from Baarbara Estate is shade-grown on the high elevated hills of the Western Ghats. Apart from growing coffee, the estate also produces black pepper. Baarbara Estate has organised farming methods in place to maintain the quality of soil and to ensure the balance of the ecosystem. The estate sees periodic visits from tigers, wild boars, barking deer and frequent sightings of more than 100 different species of birds! 

 

Green Coffee from the Estate:

Baarbara coffee is keen and a pioneer in producing fine quality green coffee beans to buyers and roasters alike. The altitude from which their green coffee is ethically harvested provides a wide bracket for procurers and retail chains to produce a great quality coffee. The processes involved in providing farm-fresh produce to your hands are of the utmost importance to their brand and all the necessary care is taken to maintain and restore the moisture content, acidity and goodness of each green bean.

The selective picking of the shade-grown coffee cherries gives them the perfect background for obtaining their best green beans which adhere to all the quality parameters. Baarbara Coffee is diligent in processing the cherries that uphold their brand values of integrity by providing the finest green coffee beans treated with pristine stream water and dried under ideal conditions. Green coffee from their dense plantations caters to the demands and variants from roasters and buyers all over. The geography and the people who work in their plantations make for the best of the green coffee that they produce. Coffee buyers and brewers can approach Baarbara coffee for the wide array of graded coffee beans to suit their blending requirements. You can buy their coffee here.
