Fruits of Coffee

A coffee bean is a seed of the coffee plant and the source for coffee. It is the pit inside the red or purple fruit often referred to as a cherry. Just like ordinary cherries, the coffee fruit is also a so-called stone fruit.

Even though the coffee beans are seeds, they are referred to as “beans” because of their resemblance to true beans.

The birth place of coffee in India is Chikmagalur. The first seeds were sown about 350 years ago on the slopes of Baba Budan Giri Hills in Chikmagalur.

As history tells it is the Arab Connections that led to the mushrooming of the coffee industry in India.

The story goes like this a pilgrim known as Baba Budan also known as Hazarat Shah Janab Allah Magatabi smuggled seven seed of coffee from Mecca while he was on a pilgrimage.

The seer sowed these seeds in his garden near a cave in Chandragiri.

The Hills was called as Chandra Drona in the ancient age and now called as Baba Budan Giri after the seer.

All pics are taken in my native town Chikmagalur, Karnataka.
