Ratnagiri Estate has been producing quality coffee since 1927 and is located in the majestic Western Ghats region of southern India, near Bababudangiri. The farm is owned by the Patre family who grow multiple varieties at an altitude between 1250 and 1450 meters above sea level.
Generations of the Patre family have dedicated their lives to caring for the land that has rewarded their passion and perseverance.Ratnagiri literally means "pearl mountains" and is named after the silver oaks that give shade to the coffee plants, giving a silvery hue to the hills where the farm is located.
In 2019, with the help of Damian Durda, Ratnagiri began fermenting coffee in an anaerobic environment, designing and building stainless steel tanks for consistency and control. The results thus far have been amazing; Separating the areas for drying to honey, washed and naturals allow the farm to plan better, rotate coffee faster and protocol more easily. Layered African drying beds were built with ideal shading to control the drying process for optimal moisture and water activity levels. Also, coffees now are being dried at layered tables under the mesh limiting sun access and slowing down the drying process.
We buy this coffee directly from Ratnagiri Estate and our friend Damian Durda.
