Mountain Top Coffee Update Jan 2021


Greetings after a long blogging break I have a few apologies to make. The first is that I haven't responded to any comments on previous blogs, which I will attend to now (if I can work out how), secondly, we still haven't got together the right historical info on Mountain Top Coffee farm which was going to provide material for a blog. That is still in the offing... but I am finding that what would be the most interesting and suitable format would be to relay some of the old time stories that pop out every now and then about the farm and Nimbin - esp from Owen and Denise. Stay Tuned. (This type of format may go against the law of blog writing for your products' website wherein you have to keep mentioning things like coffee, speciality, Australian Grown etc etc. Well, this is 2021, lets relax!).


Mountain Top Coffee is nestled above Nimbin on a volcanic soil sweet-spot. The climate and latitude has favoured our Kenyan Arabica variety in terms of sweetness and fruitful flavours. During the course of the previous year avocados have been added to the farm as a way of ensuring future viability and sustainability. Yes, before long we may be providing for the smashed avo on toast fans out there (vegemite on that for me too please!) – not to mention the prize winning macadamias on the neighbouring family farm owned by Denise and Owen Whitney. The Whitney’s daughter, Rowena,  has been managing the introduction of avacodos after 7 years working on another neighbouring farm. Her application and passion are evident as the quality plantings are starting already to look substantial.



Other news for 2021 is that we have all the crop in from last harvest and estimated the post mill yields. Not only are we happy with the volumetric outcome but also very happy indeed with the quality. Your continued patronage is, we like to think, there because of the quality and surprising nature of our coffee; the same never-bitter, full flavoured mouthful continues on through the year, roast after roast.

Its such a pleasure doing business with you all. We send roasted coffee all over Australia and the amount sent to regional areas as against major cities is quite extraordinary. Perhaps they just don’t hear about us as well in the cities  or probably more to the point,  rural people tend to look for Aussie products more.

All the best, Bernie,

Manager of processing, roasting and sales.  

PS Thank you rain Gods and Goddesses, as the Spring and Summer has proved so different to last year.
