Established in the 1860s and run by the 5th generation of coffee producers in the family, Ram Estate is set in the crest of Pulney Hills and is surrounded by an abundance of nature. Along with state-of-the-art facilities and rich biodiversity, the farm has adopted the most ideal practices in the industry for coffee harvesting — right from picking fully grown red cherries to drying coffees on raised beds. The producers of the estate aim to make high-quality specialty coffee available to the coffee connoisseurs of the world.

Location: Pulney Hills, Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu

Producer: Arun R

“For someone who didn’t know a thing about processing coffee until 2019, this season is very special to me. The past year has been very exciting and the shift from commodity to specialty has been a huge learning curve to producing and processing good coffee.“

- Arun R, Producer 

About Ram Estate

Currently managed by the 5th generation of the family, Ram Estate has been growing coffee since the 1860s. The estate is strategically located in the crest of Pulney Hills in Kamanur village. The farm is bordered on one side by a brook, famously known as ‘Panjarathu Oodai’ which derives its name from the fact that the brook has never been dry even during the famine.
