The Mathias Family are fourth generation coffee producers, and have been at the Kelagur Estate since 1927. The estate is made up of over 1000 acres of tea and coffee plantation, which makes it one of the largest in the Chikmagular District. The family have a strong social focus and commitment to the people who work for them and house over 400 employees and their families. In effect this has created a small town within Kelagur Estate, complete with a medical centre, two creches, and primary schools for the kids. Beyond these facilities, the owners also provide their employees with an Education Fund for young adults to pursue further study and a savings plan in which the deposited funds are matched up to 12% of their salary.
This is a strong and thriving coffee community and we are proud to partner with them to bring you their latest harvest – a polished and clean tasting natural coffee with great sweetness and depth.
