Last year's sleeper hit is back with a bang! We were very pleased with how well bahār the coffee was recieved last year so decided to feature it again this year.
The coffee is a washed Arabica that is a mix of chandragiri (70%) and SLN 13(30%). Ripe cherries were pulped and fermented under water for 14 hours following which they were washed clean of all the mucilage and dried slowly.
This year's cup is super sweet and pings with the pleasant acidity that reminds us of sweetlime. Just like last year, the roast is on the lighter side of medium to highlight the freshness.
While bahār brews very well on the V60, our recommendation for this year's crop is to brew the coffee over an aeropress. You will be pleasantly surprised by mouthfeel that we can only describe as silky!
Unakki estate, Chikmagalur

Washed, fermented (14hrs)
Jaggery / Sweetlime / Cashew
With aeropress it is very good, good mouthfeel, no harshness, sweet and delicious
Turned out to be a little darker than it was last year.
Delicious coffee, probably the best washed coffee I've had yet.
The flavor profile of this coffee is spot on and the best part which I enjoyed is the balanced acidity. 4/5 because still my absolute fav is curveball
