Peacock

Single Origin

India, Monsooned Malabar - Karnataka

Region:
Karnataka

Altitude:
1,100 - 1,200 m above sea level

Varietal:
Kents, S.795, Catimor

Processing:
Monsooned

Tasting Notes:
Low Acidity, Heavy Body, Earthy, Malty, Lingering Aftertaste

The Indian Monsooned Malabar process is inspired by the long, hot, and humid sea voyages that coffee used to take back in the old days. Once the fruit of the coffee is removed, the coffee is aged in a warehouse for up to a year waiting for monsoon season. As the storms begin during monsoon, the warehouses are opened up and the humid winds hit the coffee. During this process, the coffee is constantly being raked by hand to stave off ferment or mold.

This arabica coffee is simple, low in acidity yet deep with variants of smoke and dark chocolate notes that are profound in both aroma and taste. The smoky character appears from the malty processing of the unroasted coffee beans and less from the roasting process. This is a coffee for someone who enjoys a bold cup of coffee, one that is not acidic and does not display fruity or floral undertones.

Smallholders in the district of Paranginan, Humbahas Province in Karo Highlands enjoy a warm climate, high altitudes and favorable soil-all ideal for Arabica coffee. These coffees are shade-grown, without the use of pesticides and chemicals, and processed with a semi-washed method called 'Giling Basha', giving the coffees a complex fruity, earth and aromatic wood notes. Giling Basha is something of a hybrid between a natural and a washed. First the coffee runs through a de-pulper and then it ferments overnight. The farmers dry the parchment to around 50%. A collector then dries it down to about 25% and then sends it through a huller to remove the parchment layer. Finally, the coffee is dried down to about 12 to 13% before export.

Sumatran coffee has increased body and deep earthy notes. Coffee lovers will be delighted by this Sumatran coffee's bold and rich tasting experience. Your palate will immediately notice the sweet notes of spices, particularly cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom, and cocoa, together with a medium acidity and a full body.
