Indian Coffee

Coffee fruits in the estate at Chikmagalur where we stayed over a long weekend. The fruits were still green while we were there in August but if you visit the coffee estates in the month of November, you can experience the harvest season. That should be quite something, to see hundreds people climbing the steep hillsides and stripping the fruit off the branches, one with each hand, in one practiced movement and drop them into a basket hanging down their chests. Yes it is a hundred-percent manual job!
