We picked up this lot with the sole Selection 9 varietal given the fact that Badnekhan Estate was the original plantation at which this varietal was grown in India. The cup gives out amazing aromatic spice notes of clove with a cedar flavor and a bittersweet chocolate finish making it an extremely versatile coffee.
Selection 9 from Badnekhan has maintained its pure identity and this lot is a great way to experience the characteristic features of this varietal.
Located high and majestic on the marvelous Merthi Mountain is Badnekhan Estate – a plantation operated and managed by Mrs. Roshin Varghese (and her family) of Devon Plantations. Devon has owned this plantation since the 1940s. The plantation has won numerous awards at the Flavour of India – Fine Cup competition and its coffees are exported to a number of destinations around the world including Japan, the USA, Scandinavia, and Australia.
