The fine Arabica beans grown on the Dimbulah Mountain Estate plantation on the Atherton tablelands yield a unique and distinctive flavour. This coffee is rich, with a sweet chocolate caramel body and a long finish.
The Dimbulah Arabica bean is grown in the fertile soils of the Paddys Green area on the Atherton Tablelands and is named after the indigenous community who lived in the region. This mountain estate coffee is grown on a plantation exactly 17 degrees south of the equator in tropical North Queensland and uses a wet process method to produce a uniformly clean bean.
Dimbulah ensures high quality through carefully controlled processes in production, irrigation and harvesting. To ensure the majority of cherries are ripe at the same time, the flowering schedule of the plants is controlled through irrigation – causing a dry season at the right time to ensure a September/October harvest.
Dimbulah is a great ambassador of Australian coffee, winning the bronze medal with Knight Mattingly roasters in 2016 at the AVPA 2nd International Contest of Coffees Roasted in their Countries of Origin in Paris.
