Did you know…
When we think of coffee growers, we tend to think of the traditional countries – Brazil, Sumatra, Indonesia, parts of Central Africa etc.
However, Australia, also has a growing coffee industry!
Coffee farmers in parts of Queensland benefit from their geographical position on the edge of the “coffee belt” to grow quality product, and have done well lately, largely due to the drought in Brazil – which has made buyers look elsewhere, and pushed prices up by as much as 9%!
However, those Aussis who think that they will soon be enjoying a brew of the home gown stuff, no such luck. The vast majority of Australian coffee lands in in Europe.
