Ficus or fig trees are a keystone species. Fruits of Ficus trees are consumed across the animal kingdom – especially birds. Hornbills, barbets, pigeons and bulbuls may entirely subsist on figs when these are plenty. Ficus trees have also profoundly influenced cultures across several religious traditions – Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. In coffee farms, Ficus trees are a centrepoint for our conservation efforts. We monitor their abundance, diversity, shade canopy and the wildlife species that depend on them.
The Ficus is a blend of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans sourced from BR Hills and Kodagu. This is a creamy and smooth coffee with nutty overtones.
