The Ratnagiri Estate is an environmentally abundant corner of the majestic South Indian Western Ghats near Bababudangiri, the place where coffee in India originated. Ratnagiri has an impressive yield of quality specialty coffee successfully inter-cropped with fine pepper. Ratnagiri literally means Pearl Mountains, and the dense silver oaks that tower over remarkably flavorful shade grown coffee give a silvery hue to the hills illustrating the name. At Ratnagiri, generations of the Patre family have dedicated their lives since 1927, caring for a land that has rewarded their passion and perseverance.
Ratnagiri Estate coffee is a popular purchase by fine flavor seeking palates across the world. The farm follows strict quality standards and has its own water supply from two freshwater streams following strict guidelines of government quality and pollution control boards. With a strong commitment to environmental conservation and sustainability.
Ratnagiri Estate is a biodynamic farm and maintains the official Rainforest Alliance Certification. The estate is a lush, shaded environment with 3 stories of shade. It is home to over 48 recorded bird populations, monkeys, leopards, wild boar, tigers, and mongoose. The rich biodiversity demands that me and my family have an approach to farming which places ecology and harmony with the environment at the forefront.
