In India, coffee is traditionally grown in three southern states. One of these states is Karnataka. India is the only country who fully grows their coffee in shade. Generally, the coffees grown here are mild and not too acidic with a beautiful aroma and a full-bodied taste. India has produced incredible high-quality coffees for over 150 years. This is not surprising as many say Indian coffee growers pour their life into the growth of their crops.
REGION: Sakleshpur and Coorg Districts, Karnataka
Coffee crops were first introduced in Sakleshpur in 1843. Fredric Green was the first coffee grower, growing coffee in a village garden. Coffee is now a mainstream crop in Skaleshpur. The most popular of the two varieties grown in this region is the Robusta. Coorg, India is also known as Kodagu in the local language. In Coorg the introduction to coffee was brought by John Fowler, an Englishman in 1854. This caught on quick as nearly all families in the district began to grow coffee. This is why Coorg has earned the name “the coffee cup of India”.
PRODUCER: Smallholder farmers from Sakleshpur and Coorg Districts
Many of these farms are multi-generational, resulting in their operation spanning nearly one hundred years. Smallholder farms are farms that measure less than five acres in size but despite their small size, they yield higher than the other large-scale farms. These smallholder farms often value environmental responsibility and as a result use fewer pesticides which reduce their negative environmental impact.
