Coorg, or Kodagu as it is often called, is a district in the state of Karnataka. Before being a part of Karnataka, it was an independent state for a brief time period (1950-1956). The place was originally called Kodavu based on the reference of the earliest inhabitants who were called Kodavas. They were agriculturalists and warriors who headed their own chieftains. Even today agriculture remains one of the key sources of revenue with majority of the population dependent on farming and cultivation. The district has a small population; the least populous amongst the entire 30 districts in Karnataka state. Rice and Coffee are the most grown crops of the place. Since the place produces large quantities of coffee, it is for this fact the place is also just often called the “coffee bowl of India”. The coffee grown here is particularly famous for the clean beans, blue color, and the fine drinking quality. Most of the cultivation areas of the place are capped with miles long estates of coffee. Apart from coffee, the other major corps of the place are orange, pepper, paddy, and cardamom.
