While staying with my cousin Barry, in Ramsgate, hubby and I had coffee and a light lunch at Beaver Creek in Port Edward. Beaver Creek is the world’s most Southern coffee estate in the seaside town of Port Edward. A family owned business with three generations personally involved in growing, harvesting and roasting, began in 1984 with only 4 trees and now has more than 60 000 trees !!
Next time we are in the area, we want to make sure we’re there for the ‘crop to cup’ tour which begins at 12:00 daily that outlines the distinctive flavours of the world’s coffee regions and the processes involved in creating the perfect cup. Sounds very interesting
Coffee tree saplings for sale. I’m buying one next time to plant in a pot 🙂
Coffee tastings ..
We sat under the tarpaulin for coffee and a nice light lunch. Hubby said his hamburger was very good and I had a spinach and feta quiche which was also very good. There is an indoor area as well …
Drying tables: I spoke to a chappie who was tossing a tray of washed beans, who in his broken English said he turns them every 3 hours and then they are left to dry. I don’t know for how long they dry in the sun as he couldn’t understand what I was asking. I need to go on the tour 😉
