Background Details

India RFA Arabidecool Estate coffee is sourced from the Arabidecool Estate located near the Baba Budangiri hills in the Western Ghats mountain range within the state of Karnataka, India. In the Baba Budangiri hills there is a shrine for Baba Budan, the Sufi saint who first cultivated coffee in India with seven raw beans from Mocha that he brought from his pilgrimage to Mecca in the 17th century. The Baba Budangiri hills are also home to the Neelakurinji flower, which only blooms every twelve years. The Arabidecool Estate covers 142 hectares with a distinct micro-climate that is reflected in the cup profile.
