    growing coffee in Queensland

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive seen a few old threads about growing coffee in various places. On a recent visit to Maleny (a bit inland, so a slightly cooler climate than the Qld subtropical coast), I saw coffee trees on sale and found one growing in the yard of a B+B in the area. Does anyone have experience of coffee grown in that locale (or similar climate)?

    Ive got two plants fruiting here in Sydney.
    Growing anywhere in QLD should be easier than here.

    Thanks for the pointer to the 2009 thread. I found some stuff from 2008, nowhere near as much info.
