ABOUT

Malabar est a region located on the south west coast of the Indian peninsula. The influence of the sea winds give this coffee all its typicity. The term “Monsooned? was invented following a transport accident. Shipments of Indian coffee beans bound for Europe via the Cape of Good Hope were exposed to high levels of humidity during their journey. Upon arrival, these coffees had a certain success in Europe as this quality was particularly sought after.

THE REGION OF Karnataka

The state of Karnataka is the largest coffee producer in India, ahead of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Legend has it that the Baba Budangiri area in this state is linked to that of an Indian sage named Baba Budan. 400 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 area produces Arabica coffee at an altitude of between 1000 and 1500m. The appellation covers 15,000 hectares and uses mainly the S795, SL9 and Cauvery varieties.
