Welcome To Chariot
The history of the modest brew is nearly as long as the beverage itself, and it has a greater effect on
our society than we may think. Coffee has a long narrative to tell us, from the dawn of world trade to
our favorite neighborhood coffee shop, if we are just ready to listen. In reality, coffee has been a
part of the country's culture for decades, having a history dating back to 1670! Even though India has
been a leading producer for some years, coffee culture is still relatively young in India.
The coffee culture in India is still striving. It is constantly developing and evolving and thanks to the youth who prefer coffee over tea. With a constant 5% growth in consumption each year, the caffeinated beverage is quietly but steadily creating a reputation for itself in Indian society as a whole. There are over 16 different indigenous coffee varieties in the nation! India is the only country in the world that grows all of its coffee in the shade. The cash crop is typically cultivated at high altitudes in humid, wet conditions. Despite the prosperity of the Indian coffee industry, people still prefer tea over coffee. As a result, more than 80% of India's coffee is cultivated purely for commercial interests.
History Of Indian Coffee
Baba Budan, a notorious Indian Sufi mystic, is claimed to have brought coffee to India around 1640 when he paused at the Yemeni port of Mocha (or Mokka) on his way to Mecca (Islam's holiest city). Baba Budan came across some popular Mocha coffee beans one day and purchased some. He quickly developed a taste for the new beverage and sneaked 7 coffee beans out of Mocha. He then returned to his home in Karnataka, India, and planted the beans. Budan's private garden plants increased immensely, ultimately taking over what is now known as the Baba Budan hills, and it is from here that Indian coffee originated. While the nation was still under British administration, coffee plantations were built in the south; as these plantations became increasingly successful, coffee plantations expanded throughout the country. As a result, a lush ecology and a stable economy gradually developed, both of which are still thriving today.
