Climate / Geography
Sherwood (formerly RSW) coffee comes from the Sherwood Forest Estate at altitudes of up to 1700 metres and just below the Blue Mountain Peak, the highest mountain in the Blue Mountains. Sherwood Forest Estate is one of the largest intact original Blue Mountain coffee plantations and coffee has been grown there almost continuously since the late 1700' s. Most of Sherwood's plantings are scattered in the tree shaded valleys through which run seasonal springs. The charming early 19th century house, pulpery and drying mill, including the original 19th century drying barbecues continue in use today.
The Blue Mountains have a unique location and microclimate that leads to the production of their fabled coffee. The coffee growing area of the Blue Mountains is high in altitude, shaded both by trees and a near constant cloud cover. The altitude, shade and cool steady climate combine to provide near perfect conditions for the cherries to grow a longer time and reach a riper maturity producing a rich and flavourful cup of coffee.
