Lot GEMS 5049: Microbial Magic: Dried citrus, almond, strawberry, sugarcane, molasses

In 2016, K. Laxman and his wife Vijaykumari began cultivating coffee and pepper on 0.8 acres of land to provide for their family of seven.

To begin their coffee journey, the couple received coffee seedlings from Naandi’s local, in-house nursery. These coffee seedlings had been treated with a blend of locally sourced herbs and organic materials, had been nurtured from the very moment of germination, setting the stage for robust growth. Through consistent application of bio-inputs throughout the coffee bush's life cycle, the couple ensured optimal conditions for producing high-quality coffee cherries.

This diligent adherence to regenerative agricultural practices laid the foundation for remarkable results. With its exquisite cupping notes of honey, caramel, mango, raisin and green apple, the coffee is complemented by a delightful acidity.
