Udayagiri estate is located at Hosapura village in the Chikmagalur district of Karnataka. It was started in 1925 by the family of Kalasaiah.
The estate is located at an altitude of 4100 feet and is in the most fertile zone of the Western Ghats popularly referred to as “Giri”. The coffee is grown here under trees including orange, fig, jackfruit, white teak, silver oak, rose oak and jungle woods, which provide natural manure as fertilizer.
In 2010, the new generation of Arabica coffees – Chandragiri and Selection795 – were added to the existing plantation.
