As most coffee professionals and tasters believe, the humble coffee bean tells us stories of the estates it was born in, in its brew. These stories unfold in its aroma, tone and rich taste. Our coffee narrates a fascinating life story filled with memories of the forests in the Western Ghats. The sweet, peaty soil of the region is home to the world§Ó??s only shade grown coffee plantations and part of the natural forest cover, making it rich in biodiversity. This is where we chalked a path for Humble Bean, a company of proud farmers with the singular vision - bringing our uniquely rich Indian coffee to the global forefront.
