Legend has it that a fakir, Baba Budan, smuggled seven coffee beans on his journey from Persia to India and planted those seeds on a mountain, now called Baba Budan Giri, situated along the Chandradrona Hills. Lush green Krishna giri plantation may have originated from those seven beans that grew to be amongst India’s first recorded coffee plantations. The plantation is privately held by Boje Gowda and his son Himakirthi Gowda.
Krishnagiri’s washed coffee follows the traditional washed process where cherries are handpicked and at the end of each day’s harvest, they pass through syphon where the floats and green beans are separated before ripe cherries go through the pulper to remove the skin and mucilage before being dried.
