Lot GEMS110: Earthy Delight (Chocolate, sweet, citrus, honey, lime, bright acidity, orange)

“The leaves that fall from shade trees are truly nourishing. We gather up to one-and-a-half feet-high heaps of leaves that slowly decompose and turn into healthy in-situ compost!” Meet Vanthala Chinnayya and Kondamma, the soulful coffee farmers from the picturesque village of Doravalasa. Surrounded by a canopy of lush shade trees, Vanthala and Kondamma have been tending to their 2-acre coffee farm with unwavering dedication.

Their hands-on approach to coffee cultivation is rooted in 20 years of association with Naandi, where they have learned everything there is to know about growing specialty coffee.

The soil in their farm is enriched with a diverse foliage from the shade trees - Lemon, Papaya, Sweet lime & Custard apple to name a few. The fallen leaves decompose naturally, making the soil nutrient-rich and providing the perfect foundation for microlots like Gems110. The coffee mirrors the complex influences of the shade trees with cupping notes of citrus, lime, orange with a bright acidity!
