The adventure continues in India with the visit of another coffee plantation. Similar to the previous one, it has the particularity of growing at higher altitude on a slightly more mountainous terrain. The discovery of this coffee plantation was first done in a coffee shop. Indeed, Third Wave Coffee offered coffee from MS Organic. The roaster then gave us the contact of the producer we had the chance to meet in Bangalore before going to his plantation. We did what’s called from cup to farm, where we started with a cup of coffee and then went to where it came from. So there is an organic plot in the coffee plantation. Balanoor Coffee has also diversified its plantation by producing tea, wood, pepper and many other plants that nature offers us. You can visit the coffee plantation and also enjoy a beautiful sunrise and sunset.
When you are travelling abroad, one of the best ways to find producers is to go to the selling point and ask directly where the coffee comes from. The best places for this are the coffee shop and roasting of course.
Let’s talk about Chikmagaluru! This city is best known for the export of coffee; it is from here that the majority of coffee undergoes the last stage of its processing and prepared for export. There are a few dozen "curing work" or coffee making stations that share the export of coffee from the majority of the Karnataka region.
