Below are a few important notes from the planter,
We grow our coffee in thick and heavy shade. The main reason for the fruitiness and better bean taste in our coffee is the first layer of native fruit trees. These add to the humic acid content of the soil and nourishment.
Our region is at a particular point in the Chandra Drona hill range that, it is relatively dry in the summers and wet for 6-7 months, without any sunlight at all. This double whammy of climate is another reason for the regions superior bean quality, nothing less than an SCA score of 84. The bean maturity is very slow and we traditionally used to start picking on December 25th.
We do not use any herbicide whatsoever, and no use of any harmful chemicals.
The plant varieties grown are Selection 795, Chandragiri and SL 5B, along with a few Catuai, Catimor and Bourbon.
5B is the most dominant variety, which has adapted to the climatic conditions very well and with superior bean characteristics, Brix level around 24-27.
We try to incorporate spiritual practices into our estate growing and how we do business. With the implementation of spirituality into everyday life, we feel effects of every single living organism connected to us and an increase in quality of life and happiness.
