KALLEDEVERAPURA ESTATE BABA BUDAN GIRI
Moganad Estate is part of MSP Coffee From Yercaud (Tamil Nadu) which was started in the 1920’s by Mr. MSP Senthikumar Nadar, and then was expanded by his elder son Mr. MSP Rajes to cover an area of around 3000 acres. They are a UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certified estate that grows high elevation Arabicas and Robustas. Their coffees are grown under a canopy of exotic fruit trees and spices like durians, vanilla, pepper, and are then handpicked and hand garbled to ensure that only the best and most delicious coffees reach us. The coffees are processed using modern and scientific methods, and are data logged to ensure repeat-ability. They take great pride in making their estate sustainable not just for the environment but also for the workers who work for them. They have provided free housing and healthcare to all their permanent staff, and comfortable living conditions for them. The estate is currently run by the fourth and fifth generation under the management of Mr. Mohan Rajes, and his sons Navin, Ashok, and Kamalesh.
They provide free electricity and living quarters, to their staff and families, and also provide free education to the children of the staff. They are also working with other farms to improve their processing methods, and hence improving the cup quality, and as a result getting better prices and greater recognition. They have won numerous coffee awards in Indian and abroad for their outstanding coffee.
