Had the nitro infused cold coffee on ice, with a dash of sugar syrup. Sensational.
Also had the chicken skewers and salad ... unbelievable!

Visited while touring the tablelands on holidays from intertstate. Was recommended by our hotel to have a look. Glad we did, not especially interested in coffee but appreciated the museum collection that has been amassed (quite incredible) and the tasting section is well setup. If in the area, would recommend a visit

The coffee here is great however at $49 a kilo while the hole in the wall Domingo coffee was just $29 per kg and much smoother.

Hi there!

Thank you for your review. We are so lucky to be spoilt for choice with a lot of coffee grown around the Mareeba area! We are happy to hear that you found a coffee that you enjoy, however would like to clarify that our coffee is $40/kg, not $49/kg. We do hope we can welcome you back again soon to discover a new favorite - we have over 40 different beans and blends to choose from!

Very comprehensive display of coffee-related souvenirs to purchase.
We purchased coffee and cakes and were surprised the coffee was served in take-away cups. The cakes were on plates so it wasn't assumed that we were taking them away. Other patrons had cups.
Most unusual for a place that catered for coffee buffs!

Thank you so much for your review! Apologies for your coffee being served in take-away cups - not sure why this was but I'm sure it was just as tasty! We do hope we can welcome you back again to experience Coffee World - it truly is like Disneyland for Coffee!
