Farm Tour: Celebrating 10 years of Blue Tokai

As we complete 10 years of Blue Tokai — we’re marking this special occasion, by bringing you something very special, something that is very close to our hearts. We’re taking a very limited group of people on a farm tour to one of our partner estates, in the misty high peaks of Yercaud, Tamil Nadu, where you’ll get up and close with coffee harvesting at farms. In this tour, you’ll learn everything there is to know about coffee cultivation and processing — through real time interactive and educational experiences like picking of cherries, sorting, post-harvest cleaning, processing and at the very end, cupping the delicious coffee at the farm itself!

The tour starts and ends at our cafe in Koramangala. You’ll be taken around through an AC traveller. Tour price is exclusive of flight tickets and anything not mentioned in the itinerary.

Limited spots are available. Do not miss out on this special estate tour!
