Sophisticated biochemistry aside, what is so special about anaerobically fermented coffees? They invariably give us precise flavour profiles that are immediately identifiable by both aroma and taste. This lot from Gowri Estate was produced by selectively harvesting cherries at a time when they were known to give maximum sweetness. They were rinsed with fresh spring water, further sorted by hand, rinsed again, and then put aside to ferment anaerobically (in an environment of reduced oxygen) for 24 hours. They were then slow-dried on raised beds for 21 days allowing the beans to retain all of their potential sweetness. This coffee is an explosion of fruit flavors and gives notes of mango, guava, and cashew.
With special pockets of untouched native jungles within the plantation, Gowri Estate is a paradise for local wildlife and exotic birds enjoying the crisp cool air and abundant water on offer. An evening walk through this estate will have you awestruck with the magical sunsets painting the horizon in beautiful hues of pink, orange, and purple. Gowri Estate has warm cozy picturesque cottages, campsites and amazing trails to keep you occupied when you visit the plantation. A hike up the sunset trail is highly recommended and it’s not uncommon to run into a herd of the magnificent Indian Bison and Wild Boar around the corner.
Coffees from Gowri Estate are shade-grown in rich soil amongst jackfruit trees, wild figs, oranges, and native jungle trees enabling them to exhibit exotic flavour notes and hold their unique identity.
