Ninety Plus Estates’ volcanic ecosystem
Ninety Plus Estates was built from seven volcanic eruptions
Ninety Plus Estates is in an exceptional location – around the unspoiled crater of Barú. So far, this area has appeared seven eruptions from the volcano. At the end of the 7th eruption, this land that seemed unlikely to be revived had transformed spectacularly, from the ruins.
The bottom of the crater creates a 70ha broad plain, cool climate, and rich vegetation at an altitude of 1,800m. Diverse ecosystems, abundant soils, and many characteristic microclimates allow the farm area to cultivate specialized, high-demand varieties and offer outstanding quality. With vast plateaus and rolling valleys, Ninety Plus Barú Estates thrives with nature and sustainability.
The farm is a miracle that nature deliberately bestowed a beautiful departure from the danger called “Modern Jurassic Park.”
When building Ninety Plus Estates, Joseph Brodsky nurtured a plan to preserve and develop the inherent wild ecosystem here with the bold idea of “reforestation with coffee.” If you have the opportunity to visit Barú Estates, the scenery will make you surprised and enchanted. Giant coffee trees intermingled with green vegetation, local animals, and people living in harmony seem to belong together.
In the middle of the ancient forest, the image of people and farms, the original green and the fresh tomato red color blend like a lively and peaceful picture. The wind carries the aroma of ethereal coffee, leading to incredible scenes. Nowhere, enjoying coffee on an old tree branch or in the middle of a cool stream is so gentle and poetic.
Ninety Plus Estates offers a bold combination of modern coffee and unspoiled nature, making any one of us dream of experiencing it once.
Ninety Plus Estates is rooted in wild coffee
Joseph Brodsky’s path to pursuing coffee’s pristine beauty and inspirational journey began in 2005 in Ethiopia. He was amazed that some types of coffee growing wild have such a complex and excellent flavor. Besides, the indigenous people here also give him memorable moments and endless inspiration about specialty coffee. Joseph Brodsky decided to stay in Ethiopia for a long time to study and nurture his passion for building a “coffee as part of the forest” ecosystem.
From 2009 – 2019, Joseph Brodsky was fortunate to have the opportunity to buy Ninety Plus Estates and start building the farm to incorporate coffee trees into the primeval forest by planting native plants, raising cattle, and conserving animals in parallel with growing Gesha coffee. At the same time, he and his partner Guillermo Saint Malo share the inspiration of specialty coffee through superior experience and high quality in the international coffee-loving community.
To date, Ninety Plus Estates is one of the most famous farms in the world. The coffee here has won the most premium coffee championships. These include winning 7 cups in 9 years of the Greek Brewers Cup and 5 of 8 World Brewers Cup championships during the past years.
Ninety Plus Estates has successfully demonstrated “coffee as part of the forest”; The coffee industry can develop sustainability while ensuring production and protecting the environment – where this excellent agricultural product is nurtured.
