Kodagu and Chikmagalur have got a greater rate of coffee production in India.
Our Coorg Blue Mount Coffee is a classic Coorg product, cultivated in a humid climate region in The Western Ghats Mountain range, on a temperature rate of 15°C to 24°C.
Kodagu (also known by its former name Coorg) is fortunate to have perfect coffee growing conditions: a perfect temperature all year round with reliable rainfall; potassium and nitrogen-rich, well-drained rainforest soil; and high altitude providing cooler temperatures and shading. The result is that at 10 months, the cherries take twice as long to ripen as in other coffee-producing regions. Accordingly, the bean is more complex, with a mild flavor with low bitterness. It is a high-quality Arabica coffee the hints of fruit and berries are lightly noticeable. There will be a pleasant acidity and a slight bitterness to balance out the classic coffee-ness, with a tint of blueberry aroma.
The berries from the plants are hand plucked. Then the beans are meticulously removed. The parchment coat and silver skin of the beans are thoroughly separated and roasted for packing.
A clean, subtle, and nutty brew with a balance of aroma and a smooth, mild acidity. Known for its signature sweet aftertaste.
Coorg Blue Mountain coffee is versatile when it comes to food pairings. A balanced flavour and low bitterness means it accompanies many foods. Great with a Chicken sandwich and also with pancakes drizzled with maple syrup.

The following guidance assumes the use of a cafeteria – Freshly ground Coorg Blue Mountain coffee to a course grind. Use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per 220ml [an average mug or large cup size]. Filtered water is best, poured on the coffee just under the boiling point. Brew for 3 to 5 minutes.
Store your beans or your ground coffee in an airtight container, in a cool [not refrigerated], dark place, away from other flavours. This will best preserve your coffee’s freshness and flavours.
