OUR STORY

RIVERSIDE  COFFEE

BANKS OF CAUVERY

As the river Cauvery gently flows under the Siddapur bridge, along the edge of our estate. Riverside coffee was born. With a great passion to share produce from our estates in coorg, five generations of hard work for over a 100 years have gone into creating an environmentally sustainable ,high quality coffee producing estate

NATURE AT ITS BEST

Riverside is spread across 80 acres and though we cultivate coffee primarily, other important crops include rice and pepper. Cardamom, chilli, arecanut, oranges , bananas and ginger are also cultivated in small amounts. The entire estate is nestled in the shade of trees like Rosewood, Jack, Nandi, Silver Oak , Fig and other indigenous fruit trees that attract a multitude of wild animals such as Elephants, Civet Cats, Flying Squirrels, Wild Boar, Flying Fox and birds such as Hornbills, Pigeons, Jungle Fowl.

Riverside estate was established in 1898, when Chendanda Karumbayya had differences with his older brother about whom his younger brother had to marry. He then decided to break away from his family home in Chembe Belliyur and build a house close to the Siddapura Bridge that was just being constructed. He would travel everyday on horseback for 20 Kilometres after picking up a bottle of hooch to supervise the construction.
