The Mysore Nuggets are likened to ‘nuggets of gold’ due to their large size and high quality.

Indian coffee production has a special place in the coffee world as it was where saint Bababudan planted his famous smuggled seven seeds in the Buba Budan Giri Hills. According to the article “Origins of Coffee”, in 1670 ad the saint Bababudan on his pilgrimage to Mecca travelled through the seaport of Mocha, Yemen where he discovered coffee. The Yemenis protected coffee and forbade it’s export, so in order to introduce its taste to India, he wrapped seven coffee beans around his belly and got them out of Arabia. On his return home, he planted the beans in the hills of Chikkamagaluru, which are now named Baba Budan Hills in his honor.

While many people know India as a producer of fine teas, it has been growing and exporting exceptional coffees for more than 150 years. Today, India is the fifth-largest producer of Arabica coffee in the world, behind Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Ethiopia.
