Australian boutique coffee company Hunt and Brew has announced it will be sourcing the beans for its new cold brew coffee from far north Queensland.
“We want to bring Australian coffee lovers Australian grown beans, so we hunted the globe and actually found the finest single origin coffee beans within our home country, in the Atherton Tablelands region in far North Queensland, where the high-altitude mountainous region makes for the perfect coffee terroir,” says Hunt and Brew Manager Emily Creer.
Hunt and Brew has reached an agreement with Howe Farming Group to source at least 10 tonnes of local specialty grade Arabica coffee beans annually.
“We are delighted to be sourcing our coffee beans from Howe Farming Group, and we know that with the quantity we are buying Hunt and Brew will put Australian specialty coffee beans on the map,” says Emily.
Hunt and Brew says Australia is one of the major coffee consuming countries of the Oceania region and nearly 19 million Australians consume at least one coffee a day.
“It’s widely known that Australia has the best coffee culture in the world. The caffeine ritual is so ingrained in the Australian way of life that it’s part of our daily routine and important enough to walk further to ensure it meets our expectations,” says Emily.
Hunt and Brew Australia Single Origin Cold Brew Coffee will be sold in Woolworths nationally from this week.
“Certainly the pandemic has prompted Australian businesses and consumers to source locally. We set ourselves a challenge to hunt for Australian coffee beans, and we were ecstatic to discover world-class coffee beans being grown in our own backyard,” said Emily.
The company is also actively exploring opportunities for export in the near future.
