Coffee from Nilgiris (Tamil Nadu)

Nilgiris, or Blue Mountains, are situated on the Western Ghats and have elevations ranging from 5000 feet to 8800 feet. Besides its wildlife sanctuaries that host the spotted leopard, the region is known for some of the best Kents Arabica (as well as high quality teas). The coffee beans are bold and bluish green in colour, and ripen slowly in the mild climate. Nilgiri coffee has a full body, sharp acidity, striking aroma and mild flavour.
