Coffee grown in the Byron Bay hinterland in northern New South Wales will be showcased at Australian embassies in Paris, London and Malaysia.
Rebecca Zentveld from Zentveld’s Coffee said it was selected after sending samples for taste testing to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The family-owned plantation and roastery at Newrybar also buys beans from other local growers in the region for its blends.
“Being in NSW and the fact that we buy from other growers was something that they particularly wanted to support,” she said.
The roaster is sending 930 boxes of chocolate-coated coffee beans that will also be used as gifts at special events hosted by the embassies.
