Four hundred years ago, a young saint Baba Budan set sail for Mecca.
Travel-weary, he stopped for some refreshment
at a street stall, and was served a thimbleful
of a dark, sweet liquid called ‘Qahwah’.

So rejuvenated was he by this thick black brew,
that he decided to carry it back home for his people.

But the Arabians guarded their secret fiercely
and the local law would not allow it.

Thus was born the idea of daring voyage.
With the holiest of motives,
Baba Budan strapped seven seeds
of the Arabian coffee plant to
his belly, undetected under his
ritual garment.

As his ship docked in India and
his co-pilgrims were kissing the soil
of the homeland, Baba Budan planted
those seeds in the hills of Chikmaglur
in Karnataka.

A few years later, the Coffees of India were born.
Baba Budan’s seven magical beans
have resulted in the world’s widest
range of coffee from a single country.
