Ceylon coffee, also known as Sri Lankan coffee, is exclusively grown in Sri Lanka, an island nation located in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of India. The country’s diverse microclimates and varying elevations contribute to the coffee’s distinctive characteristics.

Arabica & Robusta Excellence


Arabica and Robusta coffee (Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora) thrive in Sri Lanka’s diverse microclimates. Arabica cultivars such as Typica and SL28, known for nuanced flavors, complement the robust qualities of select Robusta varieties. 

Elevated Artistry


Coffee in Sri Lanka is cultivated at a wide range of altitudes, from sea level to over 6,000 feet (approximately 1,800 meters) above sea level. The altitude at which coffee is grown significantly affects its flavor profile, with higher elevations often yielding beans with greater complexity and acidity.

Common flavor descriptors include citrus, floral, nutty, and sometimes chocolatey or spicy undertones. The specific flavors can vary depending on the region and altitude where the coffee is grown.

Sri Lanka has several coffee-producing regions, each contributing unique characteristics to Ceylon coffee. Some notable coffee-growing areas include the Central Highlands (e.g., Kandy, Matale), and the Sabaragamuwa region (Kegalle Region).

Green Commitment

Sustainability and Certification

Sri Lankan coffee growers have increasingly adopted sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in recent years. Many coffee farms in Sri Lanka are Rainforest Alliance or Fair Trade certified, demonstrating a commitment to ethical and sustainable coffee production.

A Journey Through Time

Historical Significance

Ceylon coffee has a rich history dating back to the 17th century when coffee cultivation was a major industry in Sri Lanka. However, in the late 1800s, coffee plantations were devastated by a coffee leaf disease known as coffee rust. This led to a shift to tea cultivation in the country. Today, Ceylon coffee is making a comeback, and its unique qualities are once again being appreciated by coffee connoisseurs around the world.

Ceylon pride around the world


Ceylon coffee is relatively less common in international markets compared to coffees from countries like Ethiopia, Colombia, or Brazil. However, it has gained recognition for its distinctive flavors, and specialty coffee roasters are increasingly sourcing beans from Sri Lanka.
