If you are a coffee drinker, Coorg is certainly a tad bit more special for you. One of the biggest manufacturers of coffee in India, the town is covered in green sheets of coffee plantations.

Coffee plantations are one of the most visited spots in Coorg. From guided tours explaining the process of preparing the best coffee beans to an expedition of abundant coffee estates, soak in the strong aroma of the coffee town.

  • Guided tours
    Set amidst innumerable coffee plantations, it is quite convenient to visit the thriving estates. Many coffee estate owners offer guided and informative tours around their property and a chance to explore the verdant coffee fields. From the finding of coffee beans to the refinement process, you can be a part of the intriguing and gruelling method.

    You could also visit manufacturers like Tata, Orange County and Bombay Burmah for personalised tourist tours and special explorations.

  • Lodging
    Coffee lovers could also rejoice with the option of lodging at one of the many homestays nestled amidst coffee plantations. Within walking distance from your room, the aromatic coffee fields complete your stay. Some of the popular homestays around coffee plantations are: Plantation Trails, Comfort homestay, Silver Brook estate and Bel home.

    It is advisable to book rooms 10 days in advance for a confirmed booking lest you lose out on a coffee flavoured holiday.

Traditional coffee beans picking basket.

When in Coorg make sure you visit the coffee plantations.

And instead of a quick hush hush visit try spending some time with the coffee pickers there. Harvesting is majorly manual and very few machines are used.

November first week is a good time to see the harvest here.
