It's raining coffee!

The smell of  wet earth and the heady aroma of coffee  - it was a mix of this that greeted visitors on the first day of the fourth  edition of the 'Coffee Santhe'.  

With around 60 stalls showcasing various aspects of the brew, the  festival is a haven for the lovers of the beverage. The  Santhe showcases blends in the form of beans/roast and ground  coffee, demonstrations for creating blends, food pairings, food made from coffee, plants, roasting and brewing equipment,  coffee-based art and more.

The other events include a yoga workshop, musical performances by local artistes, a panel discussion by  international experts on some of the latest trends in coffee  and more.  

Says  D M Purnesh, ex-Coffee Board member, member of 'Women's Coffee Alliance India' (WCAI) and managing director, Classic Coffees, "The event is  bigger and better this year. Visitors can expect to see more brands of coffee, different kinds of brewing equipment and coffee products."

The festival is an effort to raise funds by the  WCAI to empower and uplift the women in the field of  coffee by way of providing them with education and arranging health camps and a medical health insurance scheme for families.

"'Coffee Santhe' is a manifestation of the spirit of the young generation of coffee enthusiasts. It's a good opportunity for the young and old brands to meet with coffee lovers," says Savyasachi Gowda, founder of 'ChikCoffee'.

The highlight of the festival is the 'Women's Brew master Championship' that will see  women baristas from across India engage in a  brewing contest. The championship will be evaluated by an international jury from the US, Europe and Central America.

The Coffee Santhe  will  be  held till December 3, 10 am  onwards at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath. Entry is free.
