MTC Group has evolved out of the successful Australian coffee plantation Mountain Top Estate.
We still own, run and produce some of Australia’s finest coffees on Mountain Top Estate, yet have recently developed to encompass a broader focus. As producers ourselves, we have expanded upon the knowledge, skills and lessons learned over the years on our own farms by working directly with other producers around the world.
MTC has direct involvement with exporters, mills & cooperatives in most of the origins we buy from. In many instances we have development projects with small producer groups where we work on quality improvements in production, processing, drying or sometimes just a simple linkage with the specialty coffee market by providing feedback between producer and roaster.
Right now, we have projects with individual villages and small producers in Aceh, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Flores, PNG and Laos. The bulk of our efforts in these regions involves working directly with producers and exporters, in order to make significant quality improvements on the ground. This means we are able to be directly involved in assisting and promoting higher quality production practises, and in turn source the absolute best coffees available from these regions.
In addition to our direct work with producers and exporters, we also work closely with both Zephyr Coffee and Trabocca Coffee along with several smaller boutique producers, co-op’s, mills and specialty sourcing guys in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, Kenya & India.
MTC Group has access to Zephyr’s extensive list from throughout the world, providing us the buying power and large supplier network to bring some of the worlds finest coffees direct to your door. We are able to buy direct from almost any origin in the world on full container shipments or buy spot from the Zephyr USA warehouses in mixed shipments.
Our Ethiopian coffees are sourced directly from Trabocca Coffee, who are a leading specialist in Ethiopian specialty and organic coffees. With a buying team stationed in Ethiopia, we can buy direct out of the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange ECX for you or buy spot from Trabocca’s European warehouse in mixed shipments.
We are a small specialty importing and trading company, but would like to think of ourselves as your green coffee sourcing solution!
