ABOUT THE ORIGIN

INDIA

India is a country located in South Asia with a population of 1,366 million inhabitants, an area of 3.28 million km², and is one of the largest countries on the planet. India occupies the 8th position as a coffee producing country, with 40% of its production being of the Arabica species and 60% of the Robusta species. Coffeeproduction generates around 250,000 jobs in its 13 coffee growing regions.

The country is located near the equator and in the tropical zone, which is why it has diverse biotopes and three very different ecosystems: tropical, dry and humid forests, along with deserts and subtropical savannahs. The soils where coffee is grown in India are well oxygenated so that the rain of the regions filters properly and favors an organic crop. India benefits from a tropical climate all year round with temperatures between 23º and 28ºC, depending on its regions the climate may vary. Climatic conditions such as monsoon rains favor the cultivation of coffee, as they help to achieve the necessary humidity between 70% and 90%, these conditions make the plantations flourish in large quantities.

India is oriented towards the future, seeking to optimize the connection of buyers with coffee growers, respecting traceability and aiming to improve the conditions of coffee and the quality of life of coffee growers and their families.
