HOWE FARMING ENTERPRISES
LIVERPOOL RIVER BANANAS
G & A Sciaccia
Madella Coffee is grown in rich alluvial soil beside the South Johnstone River. It is very mellow and has a sweetness of taste seldom found in coffees grown in other regions, we attribute this to our climate and low altitude. As we are passionate in maintaining a clean pristine environment our coffee is grown to almost organically grown standard, thus resulting in a rich pure tasting coffee.
Madella Coffee is unique in Australia because the beans are dried in their husks to retain the aroma and flavour. The beans are hulled (husk removed) on our property just before we roast the coffee to a number of flavour profiles, thus resulting in a beautiful fresh aromatic tasting coffee.
