Venkids Valley Estate is a third generation plantation that produces some of the best coffee in India by harnessing decades of knowledge, proven traditional growing methods and new technology that improves processes and quality.
It was started by Late M.N.Cariappa’s father who saw the potential of the land and instilled a great foundation for growing good coffee. Equipped with a Degree in Agriculture and work experience across South India, Cariappa took over the farm and expanded his holding across the district of Coorg. By combining traditional methods of coffee farming with new processes, Cariappa soon became one of India’s most successful and eminent coffee growers.
Venkids Valley is now run by his son Pavan Nanjappa who worked with him for years in this farm and also at others owned by his father. Nanjappa and his wife Shilpa harvest both Arabica and Robusta on the farm under the brand name of Papakuchi.
