We love growing coffee and have done so for the past 35 years. We used to harvest and make our own brew but it is a very intensive labour of love procedure.
The process includes:
- popping the coffee bean out of the red skin,
- washing and drying the bean,
- separating the parchment from the green bean,
- roasting, grinding and brewing the coffee!
At Kiwi we have used the coffee trees as a wind break and for privacy. The trees are evergreen and have such beautiful displays of flowers and red beans with rich green foliage. They are beautiful trees to grow and very easy to manage. The birds enjoy them too!
