Chandrakala Limkiya, one of several tribal farmers cultivating ARAKU’s rare Micro Climate coffee. She lives in Baankubedda village with her husband, Gangadhar, and three sons (all educated), who support the family in carrying forward the legacy of coffee cultivation. Her plot on this riverine island is accessible only by small boats. The island has been growing coffee since 1999 and is one the farthest villages governed by the farmers’ co-op, known as Small and Marginal Tribal Farmers Mutually Aided Cooperative Society. During the harvest season, Chandrakala makes multiple trips in her wooden boat to pluck the reddest red cherries.
