The estate is sprawled over 60 acres of land and sits at an altitude of 5,000 feet, surrounded by reserve forest. Coffee is grown across 30 acres, while the rest of the estate is covered in cardamom. The current owner of the estate, Sheikh, is a second generation coffee farmer who has been maintaining the plantation since 1995.
