Arabica & Robusta Indian Coffee Beans

The mystic of Indian coffee

In a land as rich in diversity and spiritual beliefs as India, it is only natural for Indian coffee to find its roots ingrained in mystic and spirituality.

The legend of coffee finds its origins in the ancient coffee forests of Ethiopia, where a simple goat herder made the famous discovery of these “magic beans”. Global trade and the proximity of Ethiopia to the Arabian peninsula, transported coffee to Yemen where by the 15th century coffee was propelled into everyday life, making the beverage the center of social life, so much so that the Arabs gate kept the beans for themselves forbidding the trade of coffee seed.

How coffee came to India, can be traced back to one man, the sufi saint, Baba Budan. In the 16th century after accomplishing his pilgrimage to Mecca, Baba Budan hid in his beard 7 raw coffee beans, and smuggled them into India, before planting them on the Chandragiri Hills in Chikkamagaluru district in Karnataka, where until this day the hills remain named after him as Baba Budan Giris.

What started as a simple garden plantation from a spiritual man wanting to stay awake at night in prayer bloomed into Indian coffee and its many specialties as we know it today.
