The Hinitan Plantation is a privately owned Coffee & Cocoa Farm in the Heart of Luzon, Philippines, owned and created by televison producer Steven Ballantyne, who 10 years ago set out to protect the endangered Barako Liberica Species of Coffee, with the mission to create an exceptional coffee for the international market.
With a focus on quality, sustainability and environment management, it is through unique farming techniques Steven and his team created the Barako coffee now widely available across Hong Kong.
The Hinitan Brand of coffee, hand crafted Chocolate and gifts is the next step in the evolution of Hinitan – with key stone products produced from Harvested Coffee and Cocoa at Hinitan and a range of high quality micro-lot sourced from across Asia, including rare and exceptional coffee from Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Northern Philippines.
The coffee and cocoa are expertly roasted in Hong Kong, with the Cocoa hand made into chocolate in Hinitan’s professional kitchen.

Steven personally knows every farm, farmer and their families, the farm to table concept is the heart of all that is Hinitan as is giving back from the product sales – funding several projects including a young farmer grant in the Philippines and ‘Buy Me Plant a Tree’ and supporting the Wild life protection at Hinitan, which in recent years has seen troops of Monkey returning live in peace on the Hinitan estate – The monkey being a key feature of the Hinitan Logo, adopted to celebrate the achievements and work of the dedicated Hinitan team.
