Located to the south of Mysore, Karnataka, the Biligiri Ranjan Hills, or “white hills”, are named after the mist that hangs over this region. High up in the hills lies an isolated spot, where Attikan Estate is found. The Biligiri hills altitude, which reaches up to 1650 metres above sea level, makes this estate one of the highest coffee growing areas in India and an ideal environment to grow Arabica. Selection 9, selection 795, Cauvery and Kents are grown in the neatly organized fields that make up this estate. Large Silver Oaks, Figs, and Citrus trees make this estate shade friendly and home to wildlife such as a variety of bird species, elephants, and bison.
During harvest season, three rounds of handpicking the ripe fruits take place. This fruit is then pulped, fermented, washed, and sun dried either on elevated trays or on the ground, before being cured at Sangameshwar’s own curing works. The coffee from this region is known for its sweet, bold flavor with spicy overtones such as cinnamon and clove.
As with all its other estates, Sangameshwar ensures that all its employees are provided free medical services and accommodation along with other facilities such as a crèche for young children and subsidized milk.
This award-winning coffee is sold in cafes in the UK, Australia, Singapore, Italy, Japan, and Korea and we are proud to offer domestic consumers the opportunity to buy this fantastic coffee.

When we started roasting in 2013, we had a small 1 kg machine that had us roasting for twelve to fourteen hours straight on most nights because of how small it was. Though we have grown, both, the size of the roasters (we now roast on two 12 kgs Probat machines) and the team, we continue to spend as much time, energy and resources on constantly pushing our roasting quality forward.
We are consistently researching, testing and implementing best practices throughout our business to raise the bar. Cupping hundreds of green bean samples every harvest before making our final selections is standard procedure at Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters. Holding advanced sensory trainings for junior roasters, and experimenting with processing at the farm level are just some of the ways that our highly skilled team is constantly evolving.
Although we have a dedicated sourcing team for green beans and have invested in establishing quality roasting parameters, we know that a lot more steps still have to fall into place to brew a good cup. This is why we have worked closely with our Q Grade certified Director of Coffee to create industry leading procedures such as cupping every single batch that is roasted to ensure consistent quality.
Our belief in transparency extends to our roasteries in Mumbai and Delhi and we encourage our customers to visit us. The large windows in our roastery were designed for you to observe our coffee roasters at work while you sip our special house blends in the attached café. To take the interaction with your coffee a level further, we’ll be running on-going tours of the roastery. We roast from Monday to Friday and look forward to having you drop in to see your some of your favourite beans being roasted.
