COFFEE PLANTATIONS

Coffee Plantations in Kerala
 
So now we come to the part wherein we discuss one of the most addictive aspects of Kerala tourism – the ‘Coffee Plantations’. It may not come as a surprise to you guys that ‘Kerala’ perhaps is the largest Coffee producing state in India at the moment. Most of the coffee produced is exported to different nations due to the immense popularity of the quality. There are two major varieties of coffee produced here – Robusta and Arabica, out of which the former holds 90 percent share due to the ease of production and pest care involved.
 
As per the gathered knowledge I gained after talking to the hard working people here, I came to know that specific weather condition is required to cultivate coffee. The specifics if believed include a temperature between 25 to 28 degree Celsius, with rainfall up to 80 inches. As per the climate that Kerala enjoys throughout the year, this proves to be a perfect place to cultivate coffee. The best part of coffee cultivation here is that it is cultivated by small-scale farmers in a very large portions. Of course, who doesn’t enjoy a good cuppa coffee?
 
Wayanad, Gavi and Nenmara are the major regions here with coffee estates covering up to 60200, 67800 and 77400 hectares’ area respectively. Amazingly, all these areas are well-known for their tea plantations as well. Such is the fertile land here that large scale Kerala planters here go for a mix of Spice, Tea and Coffee plantations.
