ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Coffee was first introduced to India in the 17th century.
During a pilgrimage to Yemen, Saint Baba Budan discovered green coffee beans and brought some back with him to India where the very first crop was grown in the Baba Budan Giri Hills.
Today, this particular Kaapi Royal coffee is a shade-grown under sustainable agricultural practices. It is prepared from bold robusta beans of the highest quality in a region where warm humid conditions are best suited for Robusta production.
Skillful hand pickers harvest each cherry individually at their peak ripeness. Once harvested, the coffee cherries go straight to the mill to be sorted and processed through a series of important steps. The resulting robusta beans are bold, roundly-shaped and bluish-grey in color.
Winner of the Flavour of India Fine Cup Award.
