About this coffee
Whilst the Robusta bean has been a staple of world coffee for the last 100 years, it has recently come under some scrutiny from specialist roasters who argue that it lacks the range and complicated flavours of the well-known Arabica bean. However, by combining the Robusta with another variety of coffee (Coffea Congenesis), India is able to produce exceptional coffees of the low-acid, big-bodied style that European buyers admire and American buyers have, as a whole, yet to explore. This is an easy drinking, strong shot of coffee with a long, resonant, flavour-saturated finish. Perfect for any time of day, this Indian bean gives you the perfect opportunity to sample a pure, unblended Robusta as a single-origin espresso. Can handle milk, but would be best suited to a smaller macchiato or Flat White.
CRU's only Single Estate Coffee
Known ast the ‘coffee cup of India’, Coorg is home to some of the world’s best coffee. Bordered by the River Cauvery on one side and the Dubare forest on the other, the coffee of the Chikkanahalli Estate is shade-grown under a canopy of rosewood, jackfruit and fig – each imparting their own distinct characteristics onto the plants that grow beneath them. This particular bean is the result of years of cross-pollination between robusta and congensis, creating a truly unique coffee of the low-acid, big-bodied style.The Rise of Single Origin >
