Notes As the coffee cherries reach maturity and are harvested, the cherries are sun-dried until the flesh easily comes off by hand. Once dried, the beans are stored in warehouses with open walls where the gale winds of the monsoon season (June - September), saturate the beans with their moisture and the sea salt from the nearby ocean. It is at this time where the green bean transforms and is shipped off to their destinations. This mimics the 6 month journey the coffee beans had to endure in the 1600s when they traveled around the Cape of Good Hope to their European destination. The salt winds dry out the beans and make for a great roast with loads of earthy tones, perfect for drip and immersion brewing
As a medium roast, our India single origin sits at 19 on the Roast Vision Scale and 76 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
