Australia Mountain Top Estate's Bundja Extra Fancy is the finest single-origin espresso grown in Australia and possibly the entire world. It has taken several of the world's finest baristas to the finals of the World Barista Championships, and for good reason!
We've been thrilled with the testimonials of our customers who have loved Mountain Top's Bin 478, as a drip coffee, and believe our customers who enjoy single-origin espressos will be ecstatic!
Australia Mountain Top Estate Coffee is grown in the fertile foothills of Mt. Warning
near Australia’s east coast. This is the first spot on the mainland to receive morning sunlight. Coffee growing here benefits from a unique micro-climate of high altitude and deep, rich volcanic soils.
Due to slow rising morning mists and long gentle winters that allow for slow ripening and complex flavor development of the beans over a period lasting 11 months, the coffees develop very distinctive and rich flavors. Such growing conditions, combined with leading edge production and creative farm management practices that compare with Australia’s world-class wineries, it's no wonder Mountain Top Estate Coffees are so wonderful!
The Northern New South Wales growing region is located almost 1000 miles south of the Tropic of Capricorn, making this the southernmost coffee grown in the world! Because Australia lacks many of the pests and diseases prevalent in other parts of the world, their coffees benefit greatly.
Mountain Top Estate farms follow a sustainable approach to farming and all farmers employ advanced agronomic management strategies and do not use ANY pesticides, fungicides or fumigants in the production of their 100% Australian grown coffee.
