Ekata are a team of coffee professionals with an ambition to take Indian specialty coffee to the world. Created by seven childhood friends from Kerala, Ekata started in 2016 with a mission to see single-origin, shade-grown coffee in biodiverse terroir processed to international standards of quality.
Emerald Haven is a 280 acre plantation, owned and run by the Emerald Group for 15 years. During this time, they have been dedicated to giving back to the community, building schools and temples. Working in partnership with Ekata on the post harvest processing, has resulted in this specialty grade coffee.
Biligiriranga Hills literally means ‘white hills’ in the local language, Kannada, and refers to the white rock face on one of the largest hills, crowned with the temple of Lord Ranganathaswamy (Lord Vishnu). Located where the Eastern and Western Ghats meet, this is a highly protected area in the Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary. It hosts a huge diversity of fauna and flora and has also been a tiger reserve since 2011.
