Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
Deckan Coffee Co. (http://www.deckancoffee.com), a family owned company specializing in bringing high quality food products from family owned farms in India to the US market, introduces Giri Estates™, a single-origin high-elevation Indian coffee. As with all other Deckan Coffee Co. coffees, Giri Estates brings the finest mountain-grown Indian coffee to the world's coffee lovers, keeping the quality, taste and tradition of south Indian coffee intact in every cup.
"Giri Estates allows coffee lovers to taste the finest coffee from India, a cupper's delight: a mild, well-bodied, lightly flavored coffee that is delicately acidic yet smooth, with a hint of chocolate sweetness," says Pavan Chandra, founder and president of Deckan Coffee Co.
Since the late 1800s, the Chandra family has been growing and managing coffee estates in the Giri region, the best and most well-known high-elevation coffee growing region of India and the world. The Giri mountain range, located in the Western Ghats in southern India, is renowned for its lush green environment, rich bio-diversity, iron-rich soil, abundant rainfall, high altitude (between 3,000 to 5,000 feet above sea level) and well managed coffee estates. These factors have allowed India to produce the finest specialty coffee for more than 150 years. Coffee grown in the Giri range is considerably superior when compared to other coffee growing regions of India. Here the coffee grows quite naturally, and the beans tend to be heavier due to the iron-rich soil content. Arabica beans grown here can compete against the best of other coffees around the world.
Giri Estates coffee beans are from a single origin, grown and harvested under the shade of trees in this mountainous region. The coffee comes from Chandrakan Estate, situated at an elevation between 3,600 and 4,600 feet above sea level. Deckan Coffee Co. imports the coffee and roasts it in small batches in Plymouth, Michigan. Consumers have three choices of Giri Estates coffee - plantation A, high-elevation coffee and Pea Berry coffee. Order online at http://www.deckancoffee.com/product.asp?id=3.
Though Deckan Coffee Co. specializes in single-origin estate coffees and teas from India, the company also offers a variety of products from family owned Indian farms, including vanilla, organic black pepper and spices. Its coffee can currently be found at Holiday Market and Hollywood Markets in Michigan.
