This red honey arabica is fruity and bright and very sweet!
Sourced from Venkids valley estate in Coorg, this lot of arabica has been processed as a red honey, i.e. the coffee has been pulped and slow dried along with the mucilage on raised beds.
The resulting cup splits the difference between between crisp washed flavours and fruity naturals flavours rather artfully. What drew us to this coffee is the lingering sweetness that permeates the cup across all manual brewing methods.
The same sweetness reminded our roaster of the rāga kēdāram. This coffee can also be tried as an espresso alveit with a finer than usual grind and a bigger ratio.
