Every month we introduce a new coffee. We do this to shine a light on a specific grower and explore the diversity of coffees produced around the world. Choose to subscribe to get a different coffee every month, especially selected by our expert roasters. 

September's coffee of the month is produced at the Krishna Giri plantation by Boje Gowda and his family. The farm is located in the southwestern state of Karnataka in India, alongside the lush Chandradrona hills (also known as Baba Budan Giri). The Chandragiri cultivar they grow is a fairly new hybrid variety developed in India, a cross between (dwarf) Bourbon and Timor Hybrid and this coffee has been processed with the "honey" method, where the cherries are pulped and the beans dried in the sun while still covered with some sticky mucilage. In the cup, it displays a chocolaty body and plenty of roasted nuts flavour. We named this coffee of the month after the mythical 16th-century Sufi Saint, Baba Budan, who is said to have introduced the coffee plant to this region of India after smuggling 7 raw beans (hidden in his beard) from the port of Mocha on his journey back from Persia where he fell in love with the beverage.
