Lotus Cafe

Sunday 2 November 2008

For a month now visitors to the Crystal Castle have been enjoying and appreciating the taste and smoothness of the coffee from the Bryon Bay Coffee Company. We are very pleased to be working with an ethical, local company that provides us with such a high quality product.

Established in 1989, the Byron Bay Coffee Company is a family business that specialises in roasting and blending their own coffee. They understand the importance in selecting only quality green beans, with the emphasis on coffee from plantations certified by the Rain Forest Alliance Organisation. They also source the best Certified Organic and locally grown product, using only 100% Arabica.

The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal verifies that farmers follow sound agricultural practices that protect forests, rivers, soils and wildlife, while being good community neighbours. Rainforest Alliance certification also guarantees that workers have just wages, dignified living conditions and access to education and health care.
Byron Bay Coffee Company is committed to the good health of the environment and also gives consumers the choice to support sustainable coffee farming practices. The superior taste of the coffee is attributed to its slow shade grown methods in harmony with the rain forest, and in contrast to clear cut, full sun, and chemical intensive faster growing varieties.

Their dedication, care and attention have been rewarded by winning 38 awards from the Australian Fine Food Coffee Competitions.
So on your next visit to the Crystal Castle a simple coffee on the open deck of the Lotus Café can be even more enjoyable. See you soon for a cuppa!
