• Initially, Arabica was popular. However, as result 
of serious infestation caused to this species 
by coffee rust, an alternative robust species of 
coffee, appropriately named as robusta and 
another hybrid between liberica and Arabica, a 
rust-tolerant hybrid variety of Arabica tree became 
popular. 
• This is the most common variety of coffee that is 
grown in the country with Karnataka alone 
accounting for 70% of production of this variety
• Coffee is grown in three regions of India with 
Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu forming the 
traditional coffee growing region, followed by the 
new areas developed in the non-traditional areas 
of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa in the eastern coast 
of the country and with a third region comprising 
the states of Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, 
Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Arunachal 
Pradesh of Northeastern India, popularly known as 
“Seven Sister States of India"

Coffee Board of India
• The Coffee Board of India is an organisation managed by the Ministry 
of Commerce and Industry of the government of India to promote 
coffee production in India. The board was set up by an act of 
parliament in 1942. Until 1995 the Coffee Board marketed the coffee 
of many growers from a pooled supply, but after that time coffee 
marketing became a private-sector activity due to the economic 
liberalisation in India.
• The Coffee Board's traditional duties include the promotion, sale and 
consumption of coffee in India and abroad; conducting coffee 
research; financial assistance to establish small coffee growers; 
safeguarding working conditions for labourers, and managing the 
surplus pool of unsold coffee
