Ratnagiri translates to Pearl Mountains, and the dense silver oaks that provide a shade canopy for the coffee trees give a silvery hue to the hills, illustrating the name. Since 1927, generations of the Patre family have dedicated their lives to caring for the land. With the farm's higher elevation, abundant rainfall, and nutrient-rich soils, Ratnagiri is the perfect place to grow delicious coffee.
What sets the Patre Family apart from other coffee producers in the region is their attention to detail and constant innovation. This pursuit led to a partnership between the Patre Family and our buddy Damian Durda (who also happens to be an awesome coffee consultant and coffee buyer). Together, they've been pushing the boundaries of what specialty coffee in India can be.
