This Indian coffee rarity comes from the Ekata Community Farm, in the well-known growing region of Karnataka. Smooth and sweet, with a subtle acidity and good body, mild notes of oriental spices, we taste macadamia nuts, strawberry and milk chocolate.

About the coffee

Our Ekata Community Farm filter coffee comes from Ekata Farm, located at about 1500 meters on the mountain range Baba Budan Giri, in the well-known Indian growing region of Karnataka. The SLN795, SLN9 and SLN HRC varieties are harvested together and processed using an anaerobic natural process. This processing method later gives the coffee particularly intense flavor notes. Coffee has been grown here at specialty level for 40 years. And that's what you taste in the cup: smooth and sweet, with a subtle acidity and good body, mild notes of oriental spices, we taste macadamia nuts, strawberry and milk chocolate.

The SLN795 variety is a cross between the Kent and S288 varieties, which is particularly resistant to leaf rust. It is grown mainly in India and Indonesia. The Kent coffee plant was named after a farmer who worked in a selection program in India in the 1920s. It is also considered to have low susceptibility to leaf rust.

About the farm

Karnataka is located in southwestern India. The history of coffee cultivation goes back to the myth about the pilgrim Baba Budan. He is said to have traveled through Yemen around 1670, bringing the coffee plant with him to India. Coming from Mecca, he smuggled seven coffee seeds across the border. Seven is considered a sacred number in Islam, which is why Baba Budan's actions are still considered a sacred act today. He planted the first seeds in the Karnataka region, where they thrived excellently. The Bababudangiri mountain range is still an important coffee growing region in India. The coffees grown here are not only considered rarities, but also the most complex and finest Arabica coffees in India. Their flavors are strongly influenced by the surrounding flora and fauna: spices such as pepper, vanilla and cardamom, but also orange trees provide great spicy notes.
