Coffee Estate in South India [ Karnataka ]

One of the major suppler of the Indian coffee is from Karnataka state

Karnataka State, which constitutes 53% of the country’s production, produces both Arabica and Robusta. While Kerala predominantly produces Robusta coffee (28% of the total production in India is grown in this state), Tamilnadu produces both Arabica and Robusta, growing 11% of the total coffee grown in India.

In the State of Karnataka, the top quality coffee regions are Chikmagalur, Bababudan, Biligiris and Coorg. The altitude at which coffee is grown in Chikmagalur is between 2,000 and 3,500 ft, with Arabica production being approximately 20,000 T and Robusta 25,000 T. This district includes the famous Mysore coffee, which has a visual quality of long wide beans, with bluish grey color and the cup is characterized by mild body, fair acidity and fine subtle flavor. The uniqueness of Mysore coffee is that it could be used as the main component of a blend; as a fragrant aromatic topping for a drink or lending to being blended with coffees from other origins.

The famous Bababudan Hills, where the first coffee seeds were planted by a pilgrim Saint Bababudan, to result in the birth and establishment of the present Indian coffee industry, is a top quality coffee region in India. This region is often referred to as the “Giri’s.” Here, coffee has been planted at a high altitude of 3,500 to 5,500 ft, yielding excellent quality dense coffee beans. This hill produces 35,000 T Arabica and 5,000T Robusta. The washed Arabicas of the Giri’s have Good Body, Fine Acidity and an aromatic bouquet, with distinct mocca flavor. The gourmet markets in the world, including Japan, purchase this regional coffee, which has the distinction of not only highlighting exotic dark roast espressos, but also providing the base for an espresso. A dual role is indeed the speciality of this coffee from the Giri’s.

Biligiris is not a well-known coffee region, but has the potential to produce a small quantity, yet exotic quality coffee beans. The altitude is 3,500 to 4,500 ft and the quantity of Arabica produced is just 5,000 T. Small growers dominate this growing district and produces some of the finest, large elongated coffee beans, with discerning floral notes, laced with acidity.

Coorg, known as Kodagu, the home to the respected coffee growing community of the Kodavas, produces both Arabica and Robusta coffees. The elevation ranges from 1,500 to 3,500 ft, with Arabica accounting for approx. 25,000 T and Robusta 60,000 T. The Robustas produced are some of the best in the world, with the beans being compact, oval to round in shape with pointed tips and golden brown colour. As for the Robusta Parchment, the highest quality in India is obtained from this region. The beans have a bluish grey colour, with “soft” and “Neutral” tones in the cup and could provide the buttery crema, which is a hallmark of quality in an espresso drink.
