About the Farm
This coffee from India comes from a group of fifth generation coffee farmers, the Classic Synergy’s Group based in Harley Estate, Manjabarad. They produce high quality coffee that scores great on the cupping table. The farm achieves this through careful cultivation practices, meticulous plucking routines, special processing, branding and handling As an eco-friendly farm, they depend on organic matter to fertilise their ground. This organic matter is derived from solid waste, cherry skins and mucilage. Also from whatever is left behind from drying out the drained water coming from the pulping station. This gives the farmers a natural compost coming in from their waste resources. For the workers, there are free living quarters with free access to electricity and water. There are free educational programs for children and medical facilities for families, as well as maternity benefits, bonus and incentive schemes and leave with wages.
About the Taste
This coffee surprised us on the cupping table, having very deep red wine notes coming from the macerated natural process. The lovely tannin-like acidity and velvety red fruit notes from this Cab Sav banger are accompanied by an intense date sweetness and a slight honey floral note.
