Overpriced gift shop devoid of much coffee information except an extensive display of coffee pots. Free coffee and chocolate is not worth the exorbitant entrance fee

We always stop here on our way through Mareeba. Ice creams for the kids, coffee and cakes for the mug people and interesting chocolates and knick knacks to browse. Great local business.

Excellent way to spend a few hours. Tasting was very well organised, no pressure regarding sales. The museum was fantastic! Incredibly interesting and informative. A must for any keen coffee connoisseur.

There is plenty of pricy giftware for sale. You have to pay to sample the coffee & chocolates. The chocolates & Liquors are also pricy. The cafe / eatery was very popular
