    Is Mountain Top Estate open to public?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Does anyone know if Mountain Top Coffee is open to the public at all, has a cafe attached to their farm or anything of the sort?

    There is nothing on their web site about it (which hasnt been updated for years), ive emailed them but got no reply and phone calls always go to voice mail.

    You might be better emailing Andy about this as he is more in touch with the MTC people. They are wholesalers so may only deal with agents or distributors. I think if they did welcome the public then they would have at least said "by appointment".

    There is plenty of good information on their website though including a link to photos on their Flickr page.

    By the way, this was in one of the articles on the MTC site (first published in Northern Star newspaper in 2005) :

    Mountain Top rarely supplies domestic outlets, but locals can try Mountain Top Coffee at Nimbinís Rainbow Cafe under the Cafiend brand.

    Mountain Top isnt open to the public but we might see if we can get a tour happening later in the year.

    Its a stunning farm on one of the prettiest chuks of land in this country... looks like a postcard!

    I would think October / Novemeber to fall with the harvest would be best. If there is enough interest (in this thread) we might even see if we can sort a "package" with weekend accomodation and mini-bus transport from Ballina / Byron Bay.

    Snobs on Tour?

    Sounds like the right time... And why not merge with a visit to The Mount Tamborine Coffee Plantation..
