The story of coffee began in the ancient province of Kaffa, Ethiopia. When discovered by the farmers, they found it so divine, that they kept it a closely guarded secret until an Indian Sufi saint smuggled seven beans into the country. He planted them in the lush hills of southern India’s Western Ghats and so from here began the story of Cafe Coffee Day.
Soaked in rich heritage, we at Cafe Coffee Day have made millions smile across the globe with our fine selection of coffee. Owing to the fact that we grow our coffee the traditional way, under the shade of tall trees where we let nature patiently take its course. Following this, we handpick the berries once they’re ripe. Shade-grown Arabica not only has a refined taste, but it also helps protect our forests. Our plantations are home to hundreds of exotic birds. The famous Malabar Giant Squirrel has also made our estates its home. Incidentally, staple diet of the Malabar Giant Squirrel is fig and the left-over fruit that falls on the base of the fig tree forms a natural fertilizer for our plantations. The Gray Langur can be seen trotting about in these parts as well, and the spotted deer is seen in abundance in our lands. Our estates not only provide a home to these exotic animals, but they also provide the local community a source of living. So you see, when you sip on a cup of coffee at Coffee Day, you’re not just helping your taste buds come alive, but you are making a difference to world around you too.
