Wanderoo means forest-dweller and is also a term for the majestic Lion-Tailed Macaque. The Wanderoo is an Old World Monkey endemic to South India. It spends the majority of its life in the upper canopy of trees in rainforests feeding on fruit. Only 3000-3500 Wanderoos live today making it one of the world’s rarest and most threatened primates. Its range is increasingly isolated because of habitat destruction.

At Black Baza Coffee, we believe that the coffee tastes best when you can taste the forest in your cup! This is why all our coffee is grown sans chemical pesticides and under the immense canopy of forest trees. We roast a diversity of high elevation washed Arabicas, natural and sun-dried Arabica cherries as well as Robustas from lower elevations. This means that our coffees have a deep and intense flavour profile that retains the uniqueness of each of the regions from the Western Ghats from where this coffee comes. We contend that ecology shapes your cup in profound and magical ways! The idea of Black Baza Coffee did not come from us at all. It came from coffee growers themselves and it was the idea of creating a local, participatory and meaningful movement for coffee - starting with India and hopefully elsewhere as well. The idea of Black Baza Coffee holds within it a want for an alternative - a production and market system which values producers and nature equally.
