Coffee from Sheveroys (Tamil Nadu)

The Sheveroys region has large lakes and tall peaks, where premium Arabica coffees like S.795, S1n.9 and Cauvery are grown at altitudes of up to 5000 feet under silver oaks. The berries mature at a slow rate and acquire a bluish green colour. They produce coffee with a medium body, good acidity and slight flavour with a tinge of spice. The lower areas of the hills in the region are frequented by the Gaur or Indian bison.
