Take a large measure of natural splendors, stir in some history, add a dash of old-world charm, garnish with the fragrance of coffee and served up with warm smiles. That's Coorg or Kodagu, as the people of this little district in Karnataka call their land.

Baba Budan and the seven coffee seeds

The Arabs in the 1600's were very protective of their coffee bean. They allowed export of coffee beans only after the beans were processed. Legend has it that in 1670, Baba Budan, a Muslim pilgrim, bound seven coffee seeds to his belly and smuggled them out of Arabia and into India. When he reached home, he planted the coffee seeds in the jungles near Chickmagalur. And coffee came to India.
