Aspinwall Coffee Division
Plantations were one of the oldest organised sectors that grew under the British in India. Coffee, which lured the palates of the European cognoscenti, found large investments in the hilly districts of Coorg, Chikmagalur and Hassan in Karnataka. In the wake of this British exodus to these cool confines, Aspinwall branched out into plantation supplies and coffee curing in Mangalore. Starting as pool agents to the Coffee Board of India, the company has a major presence in the entire coffee supply chain - input supplies to plantations, processing, trading and export.
Aspinwall has extensive and modernised curing facility in Mangalore with state-of-the-art equipment, large warehouses, curing barbecues, electronic colour sorters, and a pool of skilled and experienced garblers, besides a sophisticated cupping laboratory. The Mangalore facility can cure 6,000 tonnes of coffee annually.
