    Hi Vinessence,

    No, havent had anything to do with this supplier so cant comment. Regarding Aussie beans, we recently had access to a range of excellent beans from a Nth Qld grower but none are listed on a permanent basis. You have to keep an eye out for the next BeanBay (probably in a couple of weeks time) and see what might be on offer at that time.

    All the best,
    Mal.

    Hello Australian coffee Lovers!

    Is anyone knows about Laura Valley Coffee From Outback Coffee Estates!

    So, this is the story.

    The unique origin Laura Valley Coffee is produced by Outback Coffee Estate, Lakeland, in the far North of Tropical Queensland. Situated southwest of Cooktown at Latitude 15 degrees 57 minutes South, Longitude 141 degrees 53 minutes :o The elevation of the plantation is approximately 260 metres above sea level

    On approaching Lakeland the traveller passes through sparse eucalypt forest, typical of the Australian outback. Climbing over edge of a gigantic naturally formed basin reveals the shock of rich and lush fertility of the beautiful Laura River Valley. This was formed in days long ago, by the eruptions of several volcanoes, the remains of which are still there today: Mt McLean and "The Brothers". The basaltic lava and ash flows from these volcanoes filled in the gullies of original landscape to form the expansive flat fields covered in the rich Krasnozem soils that exist today.

    The coffee plantation was commenced in 1984 by G.W. Pastoral Company, using only Arabica seed. Planting out into the field for the 40 hectare plantation began in 1986.

    The Inderbitzin family purchased the neglected coffee plantation in 1994. The new owner immediately embarked on an ambitious program to rejuvenate the entire coffee production system. The irrigation system was completely changed and now the entire plantation is irrigated and fertilised with trickle tubes. The next step taken was the commencement of a radical pruning program which will see the transformation of every bush over the next few years.

    Voila.

    I sold the Laura Valley in my ex shop in Sydney, I was very happy with the quality.
    I thought the Outback coffee was an interested story to share with you. [smiley=rolleyes.gif]

    Cheers

    I thought I would re-energise this having just come back from this estate - Jacques. They have a lovely plantation and have, with the help of local shipping industry, designed a machine harvester that also lops the trees to the right height. Their coffee is very very good - well, it is when you bring home a kilo and grind it and make it yourself, otherwise it is average to good.

    They tend to roast medium dark for espresso and you can certainly still taste the fruity notes - I am very impressed, but unfortunately you cannot buy green, just roasted, but they do mail order. Ultimately I love roasting too much, but for those that dont, add it to the must taste list.

    Cheers
