The Madan Plantation is a 320 hectare coffee estate. It is one of a few privately owned (as compared to tribally owned) plantations in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. It is government land that was leased to an Australian who planted the trees and built the buildings. He lived on the plantation for many years and built it into one of the most respected plantations in the country. In 1999 he sold to a Papua New Guinean who was unable to maintain the plantation and it fell into disrepair. It has changed hands several times in the past few years. In 2003, Highlands Arabicas Ltd purchased the plantation and has successfully put it back on the road to being a premier PNG plantation.
