Woodpeckers's Story

Gentle sloping terrain with small streams with pepper vines running on tall trees and cardamom at the lower trunks amidst them are coffee cherries of bright red colour matched by the iron-rich soil in which they grow in the wild.

Yes! Indian Coffees are grown in the Wild, hence they are entirely shade grown. A walk in these semi-forest rich with biodiversity reveals their high-pitched noises may sound like a baby crying or a cat meowing shrilly. They can also elicit a honking noise, which is also quite loud is none other than a peacock and not too late reveals the rhythmic drumbeat of the woodpecker perched on the trees. So we called them "WoodiPeck's".

Woodpecker’s coffee has been growing the India’s finest coffee since 1935 in Sakleshpura, Karnataka which is nestled in the most glorious and elusive Western Ghats which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the eight "hottest hotspots" of biological diversity in the world.

Some more interesting coffees that Woodpeckers grow at the eastern ghats of India. Yes Eastern Ghats, these are small farm holders mostly Tribal farmers who grow only Arabica in the most Natural and Ecologically sustainable way, with less or no use of Chemical fertilizers.

To put "woodipecks" coffee on every dinning table and support farmers get fair price.

Sustainability is an important mission for Eteakol and we strive to vet and provide full transparency about the sustainable nature of producers on the platform. The UN defined SDG17 framework allows buyers across the world to have complete transparency and a consistent benchmark on the sustainable nature of their supply chain even when an expensive organic certification might not be available.
