CLOUD VALLEY, COORG
THE COFFEE PLANTATION LIFE

Coorg’s coffee planters and their fascinating way of life!

One of the best lifestyles in the world, even after the British Raj drew to a close in India, is that of the coffee planter.
     
Coorg offers a slow, quaint, old-fashioned way of life. Unbelievably far from the stress of office cubicles. Imagine, a work environment provided by Nature, not an architect.

Where Whisky is your dog’s name and brandy is your evening drink.

If you need to borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbour, you cant just walk across the corridor…you have to get into your jeep and go for a drive.

You live at an address with a name and not a number. Glenmore Estate, not
No. 20, Main Street.

The postman never calls, you drive down to the post office.

  While you have to look for a pen in the house, a gun always seems closer at hand.

Hunting stories and local legends, told around the warmth of the crackling fireplace, replace the 8 o clock bad news with all its related stress.

Tall men with a military bearing, showing signs of their distant and mixed Greek origins. Women who are gracious and hospitable like only mountain people can be.

The gentle and romantic world of coffee plantations, still here.

Welcome to a charming and calming way of life.

 
The British planter community were mostly Scots. It was they who affectionately called Coorg ‘The Scotland of India’ because of the many uncanny similarities.

Both Scotland and Coorg were cold, misty, mountainous regions. Both had potent local brews. Both peoples thought of themselves as being very distinct from their neighbours. They loved their independence, their dances, rough sport, a good hunt and a fierce fight.
