Advertised closing time is 5 p.m. We drove the five km from the highway along the backroads to the farm and arrived at 1615. A young Asian girl was sitting outside the shop with a young blonde man - she looked up and blithely announced "we decided to close at 4 today. Sorry." Cannot comment on the quality of the... More

Popped by for a cappuccino on the way back to cairns. Really was the loveliest coffee and nicely presented. Lovely little cafe area & garden looking out to the coffee plantation. Ladies at front counter were friendly and welcoming. Very well behaved

This is excellent value. The $15 admission fee includes a coffee audiovisual presentation, tour of the plantation and tasting of coffee liquors. Very interesting presentation about the introduction of coffee to Australia. Lunch purchased in the coffee shop was surprisingly nice for this type of venue. Bonnie is very knowledgeable and helpful.

If you are having a bad day, go take it out somewhere else, Go back to where you came from and dont visit north queensland again. I see you have reviewed other fantastic local businesses in the area with similar highly negative reviews, with comments such as animal cruelty, etc. I have personally visited these other attractions as well and...

Jaques was a real surprise. We drove down the road thinking we were going nowhere but when we got there we undercover parking, great coffee and lunch. tours of the plantation by Segway, microlight or gyro flight. Buy your coffee to take home or order on line and have it delivered to you at home. Excellent day thanks.

What agreat time we had at Jaques coffee plantation, they can make a coffee all right and a really good one. But add in a segway tour of the plantation and you have a wonderful place to visit. We didnt do any of the other air trips, we just had too much fun on the segways. Robert was brilliant in... More

We visited Jacques coffee farm after spending the morning at the coffee museum in Mareeba. Although we went specifically to find out about how coffee is grown and harvested, we were tempted into also taking advantage of the microlight and gyrocopter flights piloted by the owner and his son. That following the excellent fish and chip lunch in the cafe... More
