The Story

India | Pearl Mountain | Whole Bean

This coffee has made us completely rethink Indian coffee, an origin we’d admittedly had written off, but we’re now glad we’ve given another chance. It’s an incredibly advanced farm, not only for India, but for global coffee production standards. With Ashok’s fierce passion, it’s a farm we’re going to keep an eye on for years to come, but for now we’re going to seriously enjoy this very creamy red honey processed Cavery tasting of strawberries & ripe mango.

Ratnagiri or “Pearl Mountain” estate is situated at the top of a mountain range in the Western Ghats region of India. The local Hindi name Ratnagiri translates to “Pearl Mountains” in reference to the dense silver oaks which tower over the estate and provide a natural shade canopy for coffee.

This estate has been in operation under the Patre family since 1920, being passed down from grandfather, to father to son. While initially the son, Ashok, continued with traditional farming practices, he has since spent many years travelling to origin countries, visiting well-known farms and taking from the best of their practices and incorporating it into his operation at Pearl Mountain.

For all intents and purposes Ratnagiri Estate is an organic/biodynamic farm and also maintains official Rainforest Alliance Certification. The estate is a lush shaded environment with 3 stories of shade. It is home to over 48 recorded bird populations, monkeys, leopards, wild boar, tigers, mongoose and - on occasion - elephants. The rich biodiversity demands that Ashok and his family have an approach to farming which places ecology and harmony with the environment at the forefront. This is a world class farm & truly one of the leading farms in India.
