India Devon Estate

  • This coffee is from a farm called Badnekhan Estate. The farm is managed by a woman named Mrs. Roshin Varghese, whose family has owned this and another farm since 1946, which they collectively call Devon Plantations. The variety is called Avanthi, which is India's version of Caturra. Since Caturra is one of my favorite varieties, it's no wonder I like this coffee. In 2019 I spent an afternoon at Badnekhan, visiting with Roshin, who is such a sweet and charming lady. After touring the farm with her manager in an old Land Rover, we cupped the Devon plantation coffees and had lunch out on the lawn of the farmhouse. It was such a storybook scenario, and that simple but elegant lifestyle brings so much color to this delicious coffee.
