Description

Our friend, Fiaz Moosakutty, the farmer of our great Monsoon Malabar coffee, for me provides some of the best coffee to come out of India. Not a region known for its quality, Fiaz seems to hit it out the park every year.

I'm not a fan of Indian coffees generally, so I always worry a little when cupping them. They tend to be dirty baggy and generally not nice. This coffee proves that there are some very big exceptions to that generalisation, it is earthy, rich and big coffee. There is no acidity in this one at all, just a nutty and almost cigar like taste to it.

Great blend component, great single origin shot, not a wallflower at all, this coffee is a big bruiser that is full of flavour. In the cup expect a little bit of tobacco, but with a smooth side of chocolate and a nutty finish. A huge body and big presence in the mouth.

Roasting Information:
Dark roast this one, and if you are able, do slighlty drag out the gap between first and second crack by keeping it going up slowly.

"Quick Look" Guide:
Nutty, bold, big tobacco, cigars.

Good Filter: No, Good Espresso: Yes
