India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold Coffee Beans
Mysore Nuggets are not something we dreamed up as a name as it's got a smutty sort of connotation......
Mysore is a city (or district) in the Southwestern region of India.
This coffee is the premium select grading from the region - often referred to as the single-malt equivalent of the whisky world.
A special varietal that is semi-dwarf (large) screen consisting of around 70% at 19 and 30% at 17, although for the last few years due to extreme droughts in India, the coffee cherries have been stunted from a lack of vital water during the flowering and maturation periods.
These coffees are called Extra Bold Nuggets for a simple reason - more intense flavour, lower acid, smoother and richer finish.
India experienced a challenging harvest and yields were down significantly, meaning the price shot up dramatically.
A lot of coffee brokers deliberately went short on Indian coffees over the last couple of years due to the high prices being paid for contracts.
As I've noted before, Indian coffees fly under the radar in the coffee universe - they are highly under-rated.
Indian coffees are well prepared and just like Brazils, you will always find Indian coffees as a mainstay in just about every coffee roaster's portfolio.
Soft and delicate acidity is what makes the Indian coffee standout, along with perfect screen and bean shape.
In milk, you will find that Indian coffees develop the smoothest, silkiest and richest espresso you will ever taste.
You will taste a wonderful orange citrus flavour combined with a dark, strong caramel, toffee and chocolate.
A full-bodied and intense coffee that lingers.
Excellent with milk and as for all Indian coffees, they have a wonderful acidity that matches milk perfectly.
There are not many coffees that can span various brew methods, but Indians can be suitable for all coffee styles, espresso machine, plunger, filter or stovetop.
This is a cracking good coffee and exhibits complex flavour notes that are begging to be called "classic or true coffee".
Enjoyable as a black coffee - especially straight espresso (shorties).
The sorting and grading to select Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold is labour intensive.
This is the best of the best from India and we are pleased to be able to offer such a wonderful coffee to our customers.
