About Us

Our story

The South India Coffee Company was started in 2017 by husband and wife duo Akshay Dashrath and Komal Sable.

We are 5th generation coffee planters from Coorg, one of the oldest coffee growing regions in India. Having spent a significant amount of time in the UK for the last 10 years, we realised that Indian Coffees are underrated and under-represented.

In early 2017 we met with Pilgrims Coffee who having tried some of our coffee through a common friend were interested in roasting and stocking our coffees. This kick-started our journey to import coffee into the UK and European markets.

 

Our vision

Ethical and good coffee is expensive in terms of time, money and effort to grow. With the current international prices for coffee being insufficient to manage a farm with and existing certifications, although beneficial to some extent, are time consuming exercises to obtain and don’t do enough to remedy this. We strongly believe that being growers and merchants puts us in a unique position to bring to the market a degree of traceability and fairness that's never been done before. Our fundamental ethos is to push higher degree of profits to the farmers and make it financially beneficial for them to focus on long term investment in practices and processes that lead to sustainable and quality coffee.
