Australia Skybury Coffee

Farm Coffee

The family run estate is located at Mareeba, approximately 55 Kilometres to the west of Cairns in the Atherton Tablelands of northern Queensland, Australia at an elevation of about 550 – 600 metres above sea level. Today, this rural area is famous for its rodeo shows and tobacco industry. In the early twentieth century, the region has been rediscovered for its production of quality coffee but in the course of economical changes and climatic catastrophes, the cultivation was abandoned and only revived in the late 1970`s. Thanks to the highly sophisticated farming technology including an automated irrigation system, mechanical harvesting, processing and drying, the annual production of about 150 Tonnes of green bean coffee is monitored by a labour force of just 8 people.
