Growth altitude: 500-800 mt a.s.l.
Processing method: Natural, Monsooned
Back in the days when goods and people were transported to and from India by sailing boats, a ship could take months to arrive to Europe. During this long journey the coffee underwent natural alterations due to exposure to the monsoons. Its initial color, turned to white-yellowish, almost looking like an old coffee and taking on a particular taste.
Today this taste is extremely sought after and therefore the harvest is stowed in buildings open to the sides to allow the monsoons to enhance its appearance and quality.
For this evaluation, the coffee was tasted and extracted in espresso at 92°C, with 25 ml in 24 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took 48 hours. To the taste, the coffee has a very strong body and a marked bitterness, on the other hand, the acidity is almost not present.
The crema is of a dark brown color, with almost grayish shades. On the nose we find clear sensations of wood and very dark caramel.
