Thogarihunkal Estate is located in Chikmagalur, nestled in the hills of Baba Budangiri, the birthplace of Indian coffee culture. At 1350m above sea level, the estate has maintained separate blocks for Arabica and Robusta, which are then segregated by varietal. The estate uses modern processing facilities to transform the cherries into green coffee. These include two pulping units, multiple fermentation tanks, spacious drying yards, and raised beds. In addition to taking care of the quality of the coffee, Thogarihunkal is also invested in the care of its workers. The staff are provided housing, schooling for their children and on-site healthcare facilities. They also follow environmentally friendly practices of growing and harvesting by maintaining forest shade, treating water in a dedicated treatment plant, and limiting pesticides and fertiliser.
