INDIAN COFFEE HERITAGE

While most people think tea is India’s best known beverage, Indian coffee is second to none. India has been producing coffee since the early 18th century, in direct response to coffee’s growing demand in Europe.

Diverse climatic conditions, and farming practices such as growing spices, native fruits and vegetables as intercrops, resulted in complex flavours unique to Indian coffees.

A majority of these coffees come from the plantation belt that spans the southern Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. These plantations have been catering to both the domestic and European export markets since the early part of 18th Century.

Currently India produces in excess of 300,000 metric tonnes of coffee per year and ranks 8th in the world.
