We are on Winter break. We resume back on 20th Dec. Happy Holidays!
Kalledevarapura is located in the Baba Budan Giri Hills, the region where coffee was first planted in India back in the 1670’s. The region is named after Baba Budan who, according to legend, smuggled seven coffee seeds out of Yemen and planted them in India.
Unusually low rainfall also contributes to superior beans, many of which have won Flavor of India/Fine Cup awards (the Indian equivalent to Cup of Excellence).
D.S. Shravan’s family has been growing coffee here for four generations. You can connect with them on @kalledevarapuracoffee
Amidst the rolling Sahyadri ranges of the Western Ghats, in the vicinity of Chickmagalur are the Coffee plantations belonging to Balanoor, extending over an area of 600 hectares. High elevation (900 to 1400 meters. MSL), copious rainfall (300 cm p.a.), rich deep soil and evergreen shade have helped nurture the coffees.
Attention is paid to every aspect of picking, fermenting, washing, drying and curing. At Balanoor, shade grown Arabica and Robusta undergo natural fermentation. We have a modern, 'State of the Art' processing and curing facility for preparing quality coffees. We store our coffees in our own warehouse to maintain traceability.
Rohan Kuriyan's family has been growing coffee for many generations here. You can connect with them on @balanoorplantations or www.balanoor.com
Mooleh Manay Estate was established in 2013 by 4th generation coffee planter, Ms. G.G. Padmashree with the aim of producing sustainable and environmentally responsible high quality coffee using modern farming techniques. The plantation is located in North Coorg, on the banks of the Harangi backwaters in the foothills of the Western Ghats.
The South India Coffee Company was started in 2017 by husband and wife duo Akshay Dashrath and Komal Sable. They are 5th generation coffee planters from Coorg, one of the oldest coffee growing regions in India. Having spent a significant amount of time in the UK for the last 10 years, they realised that Indian Coffees are underrated and under-represented.

Situated in Angadi village, this farm, interestingly, is named after the ancient Hoysala dynasty which prevailed in that location from the 10th to 14th century. Hoysala Estate was established in the late 1800s and the plantations have been managed by families who remained committed to consistently producing excellent coffee.
The elevation of these farms range from 900 metres to 1050 metres and the family that currently runs it has seen four generations manage the farm. The farm’s coffee growing area is intercropped with cardamom and produces specialty coffee with natural, washed and honey sun-dried processing.
