Cauvery begins her journey in Talakaveri, and like a nurturing mother, she flows sustaining the lifeline of the dwellings on her banks. And on her banks lies the Cannoncadoo Estate, which was planted by one of the pioneer planters in the region Mr. J P Hunt in the 1860s. In 1920s the first lot of coffee was planted in the Banjigerrey Division of the Cannoncadoo Estate and It was like man and nature worked together to yield some fine produce. Today, as one drives through the Sidapur – Madikere stretch, the well trimmed Duranta fence heralds your arrival to the Cannoncadoo estate. The estate has an exciting range of trees under whose shade grows the irrigated Robusta of Cannoncadoo. The exalted ‘Robusta Kaapi Royale’ known for its good body, light acidity and soft liquor is a product of this fertile land.
