The Jindebah Coffee Story

Jindebah Hills Coffee is an all Australian family owned company with three generations now involved in growing, roasting and coffee sales. Initially our coffee was grown at Jindebah Gardens Farm located in the hinterland of Byron Bay and Lennox Head, Northern NSW. The plantation was family owned and run, with careful knowledgeable attention to all aspects of production of our product.

The local micro climate together with the rich red volcanic soil combines to produce a unique mellow coffee which is naturally low in caffeine, is aromatic, flavoursome and has a nutty finish with light chocolate overtones and a balanced acidity.

Australia’s Arabica coffee is one of the most naturally produced coffees of the world as there are no serious pests or diseases requiring the use of harmful pesticides.

We were fortunate to have two creeks meandering through the property with some delightful waterfalls and the preserved rainforest and myriad of pools provide a haven for a host of wild life, including platypus and water birds.

In 2008 the NSW Road Traffic Authority purchased the whole Jindebah Gardens property, including the coffee plantation, as part of the redevelopment and widening of the Pacific Highway.
