India – Plantation A – 250g

This coffee is produced by our friends Hoysala, where plantations are in the ‘Western Ghats’ of India. Hoysala produces coffee and spices like black pepper and cardamom. All crops are grown on slopes with two tier shades, consisting of native jungle trees and erythrina lithosperma trees. This canopy apart from being home to over 200 species of animals, birds, insects, and reptiles creates a micro-environment like none other. Soil is rich in humus and organic matter with abundant natural minerals that play host to some of the most diverse and rare soil microbes and soil fungi. Time tested practices that use organic and inorganic inputs are deployed, being ever conscious of their footprint on the local ecology and long-term sustainability of the
plantation.

Baba Budangiri is a mountain located in the Western Ghats of India in the state of Karnataka. The state of Karnataka is the largest producer of coffee in India ahead of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Legend has it that the story of Baba Budangiri is linked to that of an Indian sage named Baba Budan. Four hundred years ago, during a pilgrimage to Mecca, Baba Budan discovered coffee in Yemen. He smuggled back seven mocha coffee beans from his journey and tied them to his chest, as the Arabs were extremely protective of their coffee industry at that time. He planted these beans in Chikmagalur, in the Karnataka region. This area thus represents the true genesis of the Indian coffee industry. The Chikmagalur hills are now known as the Baba Budan Hills. The region produces Arabica coffee at an altitude of between 1000 and 1500 m. The appellation covers 15,000 hectares and uses mainly the S795, SL9 and Cauvery varieties.
