This is the story of Byron Organic plantation. Three years ago I decided I wanted to create this amazing organically grown coffee on a certified organic farm just near the beautiful town of Byron Bay. So, over the last few years I have been experimenting with different harvesting methods and times and different processing methods to get this coffee to become as amazing as it should and could be. Each year I have been entering it into the Golden Bean competition, and it started with no medals, then a bronze and a silver, and then finally this year I had a great feeling it was going to be good and when I cupped it, there was no doubt to me I was definitely going to enter it. On presentation night I held my breath … that little 500 g sample did me very proud when it received the gold. I think it was probably my proudest moment, even over previously winning the Golden Bean in 2007, as I had managed every single part of the processing with this coffee and it is like my little baby. And now and for a long time into the future, I hope to be donating a 25 kg bag of this green bean to the Golden Bean to give away to an Australian roaster each year.
