This was the view from the window of my room in Coorg. Thick blanket of mist was hanging on to the thick rainforest, and thousands of birds chirped their hearts out. For those of us who live in metro cities, visiting a hill station or a coffee county like Coorg is a sheer delight if it happens only once a year, however, for the locals, its their way of life. They are used to the monsoon that continues for seven months. No wonder they have coffee to keep them warm, day in and day out. The moment I arrived in Coorg, my hosts welcomed me with black coffee with a dash of jaggery and buoy, that was the best cup of coffee I have ever had in life.
