The five-day tour begins in Bangalore with a welcome reception at the historic Bungalore Club (whose honored guests have included former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill) and a meeting with the Coffee Board of India. Participants then embark on visits to some of the most influential coffee sites in India, including the Chikmagalur region where the award-winning Kaapi Royale Sethuraman Estate farms are located.
