In the southeastern region of India is Kerala, where our Robusta beans are grown on the hilly sides of the Western Ghats. Normally, Robusta beans around the world are grown between altitudes of 500-1,000m above sea level. However, Indian Robustas are generally found at levels of 1,400m upward, allowing a greater range of flavours to develop in the bean itself.
As well, the beans are often grown amongst a variety of other crops such as tobacco, mango trees and jackfruit - a technique known as intercropping. This means the soil is more rich and nutrient dense, and the shade from larger crops benefits the coffee plants.
Our full-bodied Honduran Arabica bean coupled with our Indian Kerala Robusta come together to create a powerful, punchy coffee full of spice and smoke.
