Description

The saga of Indian coffee began on a humble note, with planting of ‘Seven seeds’ of ‘Mocha’ during 1600 AD by the legendary holy saint Baba Budan, in the courtyard of his hermitage on ‘Baba Budan Giris’ in Karnataka. For quite a considerable period, the plants remained as a garden curiosity and spread slowly as back yard plantings.

Also known as Dattatray Peeta, Budan Giri is a mountain range in the Western Ghats mountain range in Karnataka. Coffee in India is grown under a canopy of thick natural shade in ecologically sensitive regions of the Western and Eastern Ghats. This is one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots of the world. The plantation itself is named after the range and holy man, and is located on the Dattagiri Hill.

In India, washed Arabica coffees are referred to as Plantation, and unwashed as cherry. AA is the top pick of sizing with larger bean size.

Picked when deep red in colour, beans are wet processed and dried under the sun before being dry milled and prepared for shipping.
