India's first speciality grade excelsa is back with a bang! Consistency being the name of the game, this year's lot is complex while also wonderfully balanced.
The cherries have been picked ripe and soaked in barrels filled with water. Then it's a dry ferment post pulping with all the mucilage intact. Finally, the coffee is dried on raised beds for even drying.
All this care results in a cup that's very jackfruity , slightly nutty and possesses oodles of sweetness which reminds us of honey!
Like always, this is a coffee to be savoured at leisure, the colder it gets the more complex it gets.
It can work with milk but please try it black to really experience the creative effort that the good folks of Mooleh Manay estate have put into this bean.

This coffee is uncanny and surprisingly pleasant. I recommend having this one cold preferably espresso on the rocks. The flavors I got in the first sip are something I will never forget. The whole body felt refreshed
This coffee is great. It’s smells awesome. The jackfruit and roasted nuts notes were very prominent. There’s a subtle sweetness in the aftertaste. Overall a great cup of coffee!
