This year’s harvest from Baarbara Estate is a medium dark roast coffee with flavour notes of molasses, butter biscuits and roasted nuts. Our roasters recommend brewing this as an Espresso, Moka Pot or French Press to truly enjoy its medium-high body and rich aroma of raisin and caramel.

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.

Tasting Notes: Molasses, Butter Biscuits + Roasted Nuts
