Certified Coffee Output on the Rise in India

Hindu Business Line

An article in today’s Hindu Business Line discusses the growing trend of coffee certification in India and quotes Kaapi Royale Coffee’s Nishant Gurjer on the subject:

Mr Nishant Gurjer, Managing Partner, Kaapi Royale, a speciality coffee player, said: “The fastest growing sector in speciality coffee is certified coffee. There isn’t much of a premium at present on certified coffee, but between two coffees of equal quality, certified would be preferred. In the US and Europe, it is a growing trend. What was a whisper and murmur is growing louder and louder.”

Although much of Kaapi Royale’s Coffee is organically grown, the organic certification process is currently underway at Sethuraman Estate and certified coffees will be available in future crop seasons.
