INDIA ORGANIC BIODYNAMIC SEETHARGUNDU ESTATE GRAINPRO is sourced from the award winning Poabs estate, located in Western Ghats mountain range in the state of Kerala, India. The Western Ghats mountain range is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most biologically diverse places in the world with more than 5,000 species of flowering plants and 508 different species of birds. Given the location, it’s no surprise that Poabs is the largest perennial multi-crop organic estates in the world with more than 7,500 acres cultivated with Arabica and Robusta coffee, and tea, all inter-cropped with pepper, cardamom, oranges, and vanilla production. Poabs has been winning awards for the past decade that recognize the quality in the cup (Best Specialty Arabica and Flavor of India Fine Cup Awards) and sustainability (SCAA 2007 Sustainability Award). This particular lot has won the 2017 Flavor of India Fine Cup Award for the best Specialty and Organic coffee.
