Our Farmers

These beans are sourced from a family run farm in Tamil Nadu. The farm has been in the same family for generations and with the current husband and wife team they made the transition to organic 15 years ago. The cacao trees are interspersed with coconut trees, nutmeg and pepper and they proudly state that plant waste never leaves the farm and is 100% recycled, contributing to their sustainable organic farming method.

Their post harvest techniques include box fermentation and sun drying to ensure maximum flavour development.

This farm is IMO Organic Certified and India Organic Certified.

Flavour Profile: We use a low roast with these beans to protect the subtle fruit notes. They have a low acidity, rich chocolate taste with earthy notes and hints of dried fruits.

We were really excited when we discovered these beans as they differ from other beans we have found in India. We believe them to be of the trinitario variety and they provide quite a unique flavour profile compared to other Indian beans. The farm is organic and biodynamic and features a temple in the middle of the farm for daily prayers and we are convinced the peaceful energy of the farm contributes to the lovely taste of the beans.

Their post harvest procedures include jute bag fermentation techniques and sun drying.
