Facts About India
Coffee arrived in India in the 17th century, but didn’t thrive until the 19th century, under British colonial rule. In 1870s, coffee production lost out to a growing demand for tea, just as the country suffered a coffee leaf rust outbreak.
The Coffee Board of India was established in 1942, as a way of regulating the industry. In the 1990s, the government relaxed some regulations and coffee production grew by 30 percent.
Robusta is particularly well suited to India, and it’s given a lot of care and attention, earning India a premium place in the market. Coffees in India tend to have low acidity and a heavy, creamy body.
India produces approximately 5 million bags of coffee annually, the majority of which is Robusta and 2 million bags of which are consumed within the country.
