We have not had this ‘little beauty’ for a great many years. I remember meeting the owner at a coffee conference around the turn of the century, he was telling us how his family started growing coffee commercially in the 1970’s and had built it up the plantation into a commercial success. The plantation is found near Mareeba in northern Queensland, at between 550 and 600 metres above sea level. They grow Bourbon Arabica now having initially experimenting with Typica varieties, the Bourbon is a more resilient grower. The drink is quite light and has an enjoyable mild taste and for some reason has a lower caffeine content than other coffees.
I am delighted to be able to get hold of this delightful coffee, it has always been one of my favourites. The plantation produces 150 tonnes of green beans, about 80% of all Australian production. They hull, wash and screen on site to maintain a consistent high quality. Welcome back.
You will receive 55 grams of these roasted beans for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 11 and 22 cups of coffee depending on cup size. Five grams per cup, the quantity of coffee used will be quite personal so these are guidelines only. This works out at between forty-five pence and twenty-two pence per cup. We also sell larger quantities of this coffee at a more economical rate, the price per cup will therefore be lower.
