Kambihallli estates was passed on to my father C.P Manu Kariappa and with his early passing it was left to his wife and daughters Nalima, Maanavi, Anusha and Tejini Kariappa. The family has grown sustainable, shade grown, handpicked and sun-dried, specialty coffee in the Bababudan Giris (western ghats of India) since 1948 and today it is an all women concern.
