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.
This air dried and red honey processed lot was graded for a bean size of 6.5 mm and larger. With a green density of 685 g/L, these beans are light and take up heat very quickly.
Considering that, we have lightly roasted Kiwano Na’ran with a low charge temperature and just enough development time to give it a delicate body while keeping the acidity and sweetness alive. Brew it with a pour over for best results and to bring out its fruity and floral attributes.
