One of the great things about our business is that we occasionally get the opportunity to visit a coffee growing region in some exotic location in the world. A big thank you to the Rubiaceae family for making coffee a tropical plant – thus our travels always involve warm climates. Equal and Café Culture have teamed up to offer the first prize for this year’s “My Coffee My Barista” competition – a week-long trip to coffee origin. Café Culture have a great relationship with Indian coffee producer, Pathy Kasiviswanathan, from the Elephant Hills plantation on the Thalnar Estate in the state of Tamil Nadu. The tour is set for November, at the start of the picking season and will take in the whole coffee processing cycle. The trip will also include a visit to one of the largest tea plantations in Southern India and an overnight experience in a wild game reserve that still boasts plenty of wild tigers and elephants. Starting with an overnight stay in Singapore, we’ll enjoy a feast of Chilli Crab and Tiger Beer, before continuing on the short flight the next day to Coimbatore, South India.

The current competition sees the second successful running of this
program by Equal. The 2010 winner, Paula Leavy from Brewhaha in North Sydney, won a 7 day trip to Italy.
