Kambihalli Estate is situated in the Baba Budan Giris – (Western Ghats) of Southern India, a biodiversity hotspot. We continue our legacy of growing coffee for four generations since 1948. Today the estate is an all women run concern and is a diversified specialty coffee trading unit. Our estate produces shade-grown hand picked sustainably farmed conscious coffee. The coffee plants are grown under a canopy of jungle trees in harmony with the natural forest landscape. The iron rich soil in our area coupled with the high altitude and low temperatures allow our coffee cherries to mature slowly creating our unique ‘Halli Berri’ taste. We also grow pepper, oranges, pomegranates, lychee, lime, avocado, and tamarind, that helps in enhancing the tasting notes our final product. Our conscious practices make us bird friendly as we support 86 of migratory birds on our plantation (www.ebirg.org). As we maintain strict ecological boundaries the plantation is marked as hotspot region and we strive to keep this wonder alive by bringing artisanal produce to conscious responsible caffeinators.
We deeply care about biodiversity and the need to save our hotspot region, which is why we have the following certifications. We comply with all social economic and environmental standards necessary.
