This select coffee reminds us of Kiwano, a fruit native to Africa, best described as an exotic mixture of banana, passionfruit, and lime. Sweet as honey, it’s a fruit punch, and as our Klingon friends would call it, Na’ran.
This particular lot comes from Hoysala Coffee Farms located in Chikmagalur district, Karnataka, India. Hoysala Farms consists of multiple farms that cultivate coffee in a two-tier shade-grown setting on a total of 1400 hectares of nutrient-rich land.
This lot is handpicked from 12-year-old Sarchimore coffee plants, which are grown using weedicide free pesticides that are compliant with UTZ & RFA Standards. The cherries are hand sorted post picking, after which they are air-dried on trays and then sun-dried.
