The beans in this coffee were grown in the BR Hills of Karnataka by small-scale growers who abide by biodiversity-friendly practices. This means that they abstain from the use of chemical pesticides, and ensure conservation of plant and species diversity, and soil and water quality.
The Arabica coffee beans have been harvested by small-scale producers in Yerakannagadde podu, and hand pulped in BR Hills by members of the Biligiri Soligara Coffee Belegarara Sangha – a coffee producers’ organisation. Through the producer organisation, growers’ capacities are built to engage in markets in ways that feel fair, transparent and democratic. The brand guarantees livelihood security and recognition for coffee producers with best practices and assures prices that are consistently above the declared market price at the time of purchase.
Coffee has become such an integral part of our morning routines that’s it’s not not a crop we give too much to. Yet, coffee growing is among prime sources of deforestation in the Western Ghats. By supporting ecologically sustainable coffee, you make it an economically viable for small growers to continue their commitment to biodiversity conservation.
