“We visited Cauvery Peak, an Indian family company, today. The owners are very friendly and they welcomed us with a wonderful flavour and delicious cup of coffee. We visited their property and learnt about the journey of the coffee bean from seed to cup. This process is respectful of the environment and the owners take care of all the employees who work on the property. A real good example of an Indian CSR company! It was a great and interesting experience to spend time in Cauvery Peak. Many thanks.”
