India is a country full of color: bowls of spices in brick-red and ocher shades in vivid market streets, turquoise water hitting golden beaches, and verdant volcanic mountains pervading picturesque flora. According to the legend, the saint Baba Budan stopped by at the seaport of Mokka in Yemen during his pilgrimage to Mecca in the early 17th century. He found a coffee tree, wrapped seven of the grains in his turban, and smuggled them to India. Once he arrived, he planted the beans in his garden near the evergreen mountains - and so the birthplace of coffee in India had arisen.

Today, India is in the top 10 coffee-producing countries, with around 70% of its production being Robusta. India is well suited for the production of Robusta, given its lower altitude and climate. Such conditions paired with great care and attention, have successfully positioned Indian Robusta in the premium end of the market. Such is the case of Indian Kaapi Royale, one of India's finest washed Robustas. This particular selection is grade A, meaning that it is clean from primary defects. Overall, Indian coffee is graded by size and defect count using a system that ranges from AAA, which are the big beans, down to AA, A, AB, and PB for peaberry beans. Typically, a larger bean size is associated with higher quality.

This washed Kaapi Royale A is a great recommendation for anyone who desires a solid essence of dark aroma in espresso blends. As a specialty Indian Robusta, it is characterized by a heavy and aromatic profile, working nicely for a creamy and nutty espresso.

India is full of color: bowls of brick red and ocher spices at vivid markets and turquoise water hitting golden beaches. Verdant volcanic mountain ranges sketch the diversity of India's flora and fauna. Not surprisingly, it also offers a large variety of agricultural produce. Although making up only a low percentage of its exports, India's specialty coffee production has started to draw some serious attention.

India may generally be more known for tea. However, the actual origins of coffee production root back to as early as 1670. According to legend, Saint Baba Budan stopped in the port city of Mokka in Yemen on his pilgrimage to Mecca. There he discovered a coffee tree, wrapped seven grains in his turban, and smuggled them to India. Once he arrived, he planted the beans in his garden near the evergreen, flowery mountains of Chikmagalur- and so the birthplace of coffee in India had arisen.

In his honor, the fertile mountain chains were named after him (Giri = mountains) and are famous for some of the nuttiest Indian Arabicas. Today, there are about 250,000 coffee growers in India – 98% of them being smallholders. Most of India's production takes place in the southern part of the country, in the states of Kerala and Karnataka. The latter is shaped by the profuse Western Ghats, a mountain range inherent to one of the greatest biodiversity hotspots in the world.

While Arabica makes up about 40% of the country's production, Indian Robustas have also gained some reputation and are mostly grown in Kerala. Both Arabica and Robusta beans can also be processed as Monsooned Malabars. This traditional processing method is unique to India and stems from the early days when ships loaded with coffee experienced heavy rainfalls and high humidity on their way to England. Today, the coffees are thus exposed to high humidity during the monsoon period to soak up with water and gain a distinct woody flavor.
