Ian and Marion moved to Australia in 1987 and the following year on a road trip around Australia, they bought the Skybury Plantation. It's a decision they haven't looked back from. And today Skybury is very much a family affair.
Skybury is the oldest commercial coffee plantation in Australia harvesting 50 tonnes of Arabica coffee year year. Their years of hard work have seen them develop and perfect their growing and roasting techniques.
This includes developing a unique wet processing approach that shapes their coffee's great flavour. The system combines speed and control to create the perfect cup and they are able to process coffees from field to dry and stabilised in one hour (this typically takes three days.) In the final stage, the onsite roastery releases the sweet, chocolate flavour in the beans.
