Lot GEMS 5087b: Green Thumbs: Mandarin orange, tea, hint of floral, honey, spice

Korra Vijay Kumar and his wife Susheela embarked on their coffee journey with Naandi Foundation six years ago. It was Vijay Kumar's father, who initially ventured into coffee cultivation back in 2012. However, with limited know-how of specialty coffee production and its needs, the endeavour yielded modest results for the family.

The introduction of Naandi’s proprietary bio-inputs sparked a transformation. These inputs, carefully applied at specific times, helped initiate microbial activity in the soil, enhance photosynthetic processes, resulting in robust growth and increased yield. “We were eager to unlock our coffee’s true potential. With the use of these inputs, we've witnessed visibly healthier and larger cherries," asserts Vijay Kumar.

Today, vibrant coffee bushes adorn their farm. The duo’s coffee offers a captivating profile of caramel, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and fresh cream.
