Grown in the Eastern ghats of India in an area populated by indigenous tribes and largely isolated from the outside world. Naandi, India’s largest social enterprise started to convert areas of semi-wasteland in to coffee plantations as well setting up education programmes for girls in the region.
The farmers decided to band together to form a co-operative, which is now made up of 10,000 members. Alongside coffee they now also grow spices and fruit, and have transformed the economy of the area. They now use organic growing methods and are free from child labour.
This is a bright and fruity tasting coffee which tastes incredibly similar to a good Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.
