About this specialty coffee:
The Northern NSW growing region is located about 200 kilometers south of Brisbane, at latitude 28° south, which is almost 1,600 kilometers from the Tropic of Capricorn. This is the most southern coffee growing region in the world, with a unique micro climatic replicating the conditions found in more equatorial coffee growing regions of 1200 meters. It is this exclusive combination of southern latitude, unique micro climate and volcanic soils which provides the perfect conditions for specialty coffee production.
Additionally, cool, cloudy and wet summers provide optimum conditions for bean growth, while mild, cool and clear weather during winter slows the ripening process to allow for a late harvesting in the spring. Coffees from this region generally show higher sugar content in the fruit adding to sweetness in the cup.
This coffee has a very distinctive sweetness with chocolate aroma and well balanced acidity; it is an ideal espresso coffee but with the versatility to be suitable for filter applications.
