Relive the origin

Coffee was introduced to India in the late 17th century. The story goes that an Indian pilgrim to Mecca, known as Baba Budan, smuggled seven beans to India from Yemen in 1670 (at the time it was illegal to take coffee seeds out of the Arabian Peninsula) and planted them in the Chandragiri Hills of Karnataka. The Dutch (who occupied much of India throughout the 17th century) helped spread coffee cultivation in the country, but it was with the arrival of British colonialism in the mid-19th century that commercial coffee cultivation reached its peak, development. Arabica plants were initially widespread, but rust infestations of coffee leaves led many farms to replace them with Robusta plants or Arabica / Liberica hybrids.
