It’s Coffee Harvest Time for 2017, finally. We have just started to hand pick some of our ripe cherries. The coffee trees still have quite a lot of green cherry on them due to multiple flowerings last year which makes our harvest spread out from September to late November. We wont do the mechanical harvest until the last possible moment as we want to let the green cherries ripen as much to red as possible.
We were asked to be a part of a TV show called “Coffee Time in the World” They are from Rio de Janeiro and they travel all over showing everything coffee, from baristas, to cafes, to roastery’s to farms. The host is Paula Varejao who was very lovely. Raphael and the film crew were wonderful. They were here for about 5 hours on Fathers Day. Great weather and perfect for the drone they brought along to take video footage of our plantation. We drank loads of coffee :)
We are extremely happy to announce we won Silver & Bronze Medals at The Sydney Royal Fine Food Coffee Competition for 2017, for our Certified Organic Coffee. (competing against non-organic)
