1kg of premium grade arabica whole coffee beans. 

India remains a coffee origin often overlooked by many specialty coffee enthusiasts.

It's contribution to the history of coffee has been legendary - with Plantation A and the often maligned Robusta being key staples powering the growth of Italian style espresso coffee for more than a century.

Around 6 years ago we sourced excellent coffees from Attikan Estate and Kelagur Heights. These premium Arabicas were capable of producing remarkable levels of flavour with clean and distinctive balance to the cup - in our opinion, at the time these coffees were often out-performing more famous or well known offerings from Central and South America.

Like El Salvador, India's coffee exports had been through rollercoaster periods, some of this has been a function of the effects of weather on lower crop yields and other factors were due to market practices (or forces).

In recent years, prices have occasionally spiked for quality arabica and importers would reduce their seasonal quotas and or abandon premium Indian arabica completely for a season due to high prices.

As we adapted to ongoing market changes, we also narrowed our focus on Indian arabica to our ever popular Monsoon Malabar, Tiger Mountain and Mysore Nuggets.

Our specialty offering from India this month is the highly respected Kelagur Heights which is a fresh lot arriving into our warehouse in mid June 2018. This premium coffee consists of SLN9, SLN6 and S795 varietals that are all full natural processed arabica.

Kelagur Heights has been owned and managed by the Mattias family for four generations where the coffee is grown under a mixed shade canopy of trees throughout the 120 hectare estate.

Quality is a critical factor of the entire estate, there are fourteen perennial springs in the estate for washing the coffee and the Estate works with the coffee institutes to develop new varietals.

There is just under 1 ton of this lot in our warehouse and it will be offered ongoing for a longer period than the Colombia Edwin Hernandez and El Salvador Alto Cielo.

Kelagur Heights is a beautifully textured coffee with great complexity and a refreshing departure from the acid-driven coffees of Central and South American origins.

A coffee to savour and we scored it an impressive 85.5 points - wonderfully lush in milk and surprisingly effective as a straight espresso with the intense body from full natural processing.
