At Kerehaklu, all our single-origin specialty coffees are grown sustainably under the shade of several species of trees indigenous to the Indian subcontinent - varieties of wild fig, jungle mango, jackfruit, Java plum, pomelos, lemons, oranges, Indian beech, rosewood and red cedar notably. This while playing host to a number of small mammals and birds in the canopy and understory layers.
We have an array of specialty Arabica and fine Robusta varietals, which have been cupped (sensorially-analysed by professional Q-graders) and rated 80+ - all while coexisting with the local biodiversity.
