About
Mercara Gold Estate is a beautiful 12-acre estate located 8 KM from Madikeri. Whilst coffee was growing here since the 1960s we acquired it in 1998 and began a process of transformation by organising it into a well laid out farm with a wide array coffee, spices and fruit trees. Our vision was to develop Mercara Gold Estate into a fully-integrated unit, we began processing and roasting our coffees on the estate. We follow all time-tested processes with passion to produce our own range of boutique style coffee and well-balanced blends.

Visited Mercara gold estate coffee plantation with family a few days back for a guided tour of their plantation and lunch. The plantation walk and guided tour was very nice and unique experience. Our guide Mr. Ravi was very knowledgeable and explained in detail the different varieties of coffee and other plantations here, how they are grown and nurtured at every stage and their health benefits. We had opted for veg lunch thali. The food was very homely and delicious though the options on the platter could have been more for the cost paid. They have clean and well maintained washrooms too. Strongly recommend a visit to this estate.

A must visit for all coffee and spice lovers.. The guide explains in detail about the various type of coffee and different spices that grow in the estate. They have these items on sale and the quality is on a different level.
We had the Coorgi traditional lunch and each item prepared and served by Yashoda and Murukesh was lip smacking.

The Coffee estate is located amidst the beautiful hills of Madikeri, Coorg making it a perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely time. We were welcomed by the staff at the estate and Mr. Ravi among them took us for the Coffee estate and spice tour. He explained wveeything in great detail and really added to our knowledge and experience of Coffee. We were also showed how varoeties of coffee are roasted and processed.

We had also booked a lunch at the estate, so after our estate tour we were served with the some really nice home cooked food made all the more delicious by Mr. Shaban's hospitality. He was very warm and cordial.

After finishing our lunch, we were served with a cup of nice filter coffee, which was on the house and then we indulged in shopping their own grown, spices, coffee and skincare products guided by Mr. Bichitra.

They also made us taste some lovely wine, please try their bird eye chilli wine.

It was a wholesome day!
Please keep it on your list if you are heading to Coorg.

This was a very informative and fun tour of the coffee estate. Our tour guide (Ravi) was very knowledgeable about the various plants grown on the estate and had a nice friendly demeanor. For the very reasonable cost of the tour, I would highly recommend taking this tour when visiting Madikeri. Even though we visited once the crops had been harvested, the information about the process of growing the various crops was definitely fun to learn about.

I loved this place. For a non-coffee drinking family, this was like opening doors to the coffee world. Our guide Mr. Ravi gave a tour of the Estate sharing the finer details of coffee cultivation. The Estate is relatively small in size but is scenic, peaceful, and nearby Madekeri for a few hours of outing with family.

Visit was very nice & worthy. It was very informative and useful. The employees, deployed on duty, are very kind and knowledgeable of their profession. However, only Sales Executive Bichitra Barik, at the Sales Counter, was very ROUGH & RUDE in his behaviour and does not know how to deal with the Tourists coming all the way from other part of the country and particularly when families & grown-up children are at the sales counter. His attitude, shown to us & our families has been viewed very seriously and adversely. Our only suggestion is that this employee (Sales Executive Bichitra Barik) needs to be educated enough to know the working culture and imparted proper training how to deal with the Tourists/Visitors, so that the Tourists/Visitors carry a better image about Mercara Gold Estate, Medikere.

Hello, Firstly thank you for your visit to our estate and I am happy that you had a good experience by and large. I have noted with a concern regarding the feedback on one of my team members and will initiate counseling and retraining with him in this regard. Kind regards and stay safe!

I called this estate around 4 times to check for information and availability, and every time I was responded immediately and professionally. That made me more comfortable to visit this place. We three families visited the plantation. Mr Ravi was the guide. He explained a lot in detail and interesting way, showed the relevant plants, myths and facts around coffee, spices, Coco, vanilla and lot more. A friendly ambience thruout that allowed us enquire in detail about their products on shelf, wine tasting and purchases. Their initial estimate was even correct. One will take around 1.30 hrs in the estate, we took around 2 hrs..Very professional end to end experience. A must visit , you will never repent. 4 stars because we cudn't see any harvesting. I am eger to come back and revisit the place when I can see spice harvesting and some work on the coffee plants.

It's a beautiful estate to spend an evening with a healthy vegetation of coffee and spices. A must visit when in Madikeri for learning more about coffee and a chance to buy your personalised blend. Mr. Ravi gave us a nice tour of the estate and will explain all you need to know about the lifecycle of the plant, from seed to your cup with some great facts, origin story and myths about different varieties of the beloved brown bean.

They use the traditional old school ways from hand picking till roasting and blending and you get to see all that first hand along with the mesmerizing aroma of the Arabica bean lingering across the roasting room! And finally a traditional cup of filter coffee to fuel your senses!

A worthwhile experience, one should absolutely include in their itinerary!

The tour is very educational and fun if you have Ravi as your coffee buddy..His immense knowledge and sense of humor combine to give a very educational boring tour a twist. The estate on its own is amazing. Both my parents are senior citizens and Ravi was very patient with us. We took a little extra time to walk from one place to another. The best part is as much as my senior citizen parents loved it so did my 9 year old. Ravi made sure that all of us feel included in the discussions and answered our questions patiently. Thank you Mercara!!!

The tour through the plantation was really nice and informative. The guide Ravi took a lot of interest in explaining different species of plants grown there. The tour finished with a nice cup of freshly brewed home grown coffee! The estate sells their spices at a very reasonable cost compared to the stores outside in Madikeri. Worth a visit!
