Our newest washed coffee is also our favourite this year!
Grown and processed at Narmada estate, Chikmagalur; this certified organic arabica has gone through a monitored dry ferment for 24 hours post pulping. After which the coffee has been washed thoroughly to remove the left over mucilage and dried slowly.
The resulting cup is downright festive in its complexity brimming with a jaggery like sweetness and a pleasant lemony acidity that we can best describe as candy like. Florals take over as the cup cools and we mainly taste jasmine. All in all, this stood up to even really good naturals when cupped side by side while still being in the ambit of 'clean' washed coffee flavours.
This is our first year sourcing from Narmada estate and we hope to continue this association in the coming years. We'd like to thank South India coffee company for introducing us to this hidden gem!
The coffee is a manual brew only special and reminded our roaster of the very consonantal ārabhi rāga. Ārabhi the coffee is also a delight as an iced brew too!
