How do we differ ?
Thriveni Brooklyn Estate has an edge over other estates coffee in terms of quality and quantity because of its prime location on the green hills, situated at an altitude between 4000 to 4500 feet above mean sea level and the elevation is highly suitable for the high grown coffees.The terrain of the land is almost flat with a gentle slope ideal for coffee plantations. The climate is almost lower than other parts of the hills due to the intense inter-cultivation with Mandarin Orange (Citrus reticulata), Dadaps (Erythrina indica) and Silver oak (Grevelia robusta) top cover. This keeps the plantation cool and green in the summer months. Situated in the tropical region between the Equator and Tropic of Cancer, the climate and rainfall pattern are perfect for this Master Piece.
