Lot GEMS 5153: Soil Secrets: Complex, citrus, fig, dried fruit, raisin

Korra Sathi Babu and Kamalamma embarked on a transformative journey with Naandi Foundation two years ago. Their three-acre coffee plot, perched on a steep slope behind their humble abode, bears witness to the symbiotic relationship between soil and coffee.

Year-round, rich mulch from a variety of forest and shade trees decomposes, infusing the soil with vital nutrients and teeming microbial life. Complemented by compost and bio-inputs, the soil becomes a rich source of nourishment, enhancing the vitality of their coffee bushes. “Now, the soil dons a rich black hue”, reflects Sathi Babu.

The result is a marked difference in the health and productivity of their plot. As coffee thrives amidst this nurturing environment, the resulting microlot has notes of spice, blood orange, red grape and pineapple.
