While most people think tea is India's best-recognised beverage, Indian Coffee is incomparable. India grew Coffee because of the early 18th Century need in Europe.
Varied climatic conditions, and farming practices such as expanding seasonings, indigenous fruits, and vegetables as intercrops, resulted in intricate flavours unique to Indian coffees.
Most of these coffees originate from the vineyard belt that spans the southern Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala.
Currently, India generates an excess of 350,000 metric tonnes of Coffee per year and rates sixth on the planet.
Malabar is in the South West region of India close to Kerala and Kamataka. It has ideal conditions to develop its unique characteristics and has protected status in India by Government decree.
The typical Indian Monsoon Malabar is a dry-processed coffee exposed to moisture-laden monsoon winds for three months after drying and processing. This turns the beans yellow and they "swell". The favourite earthy mildewed flavour, which is the true character of the beans, now shines.
Its origins are the words of history. Coffee was introduced into India through the Chikkamagaluru (Chikmagalur) district when the first coffee crop was grown in the Baba Budan Giri Hills during 1670 AD.
According to the article "Origins of Coffee", the saint Bababudan on his pilgrimage to Mecca travelled through the seaport of Mocha, Yemen where he discovered Coffee.
To introduce India's taste, he wrapped seven coffee beans around his belly and got them out of Arabia. On his return home, he planted the beans in the hills of Chikkamagaluru, which are now named Baba Budan Hills in his honour.
Coffee in India changed during the time of the Raj, a period of impressive pomp and ceremony. Indian Coffee was shipped to Europe in the old sailing ships. During this trip in the dark holds, the monsoon season's beans changed whilst exposed to the warm, moist air of the Indian Ocean.
