Producer StoriesLearn more about coffee sourcing
Balmaadi Estate is situated in the Nilgiris district of India’s southern state of Tamil Nadu. It is part of a group of plantations developed over 150 years ago by Scotsman John Ouchterloney and sits nestled in the verdant O’Valley, which is criss-crossed by numerous mountain streams. With plantations at an elevation ranging from 1,200-1,800 metres, Balmaadi produces some of India’s highest grown coffee.Read more
That’s right - once you’re finished, you can bung your 125g or 250g bag straight into your compost heap at home and watch it give back to the earth. The image above shows a 250g bag after just 3 weeks on a compost heap.
Being uncompromising on quality means being uncompromising with freshness. Roasted to order, every day of the working week. That’s a promise.
Protecting our oceans
For each home-compostable bag that we buy, the same weight of plastic is removed from our ocean. You make that happen.
