Southern India – Coorg region – Madikeri
During the trip that leads us to Madikeri, the Indian region of Coorg – one of the 25 biodiversity hot spots of the world – we are fascinated by the lush forest winding through coffee plantations. Here, the refined Arabica plants grow under the shade of eucalyptus, teak and impressive rosewoods. We reach the Old Kent, a reserve develop in 1800 thanks to Mr Wright which is nowadays run by the Thaikappa family, who keeps on producing a really excellent variety of Arabica with the same passion and great care in the processing methods.
