This year’s light roast offering from Kerehaklu Estate is a washed coffee with fragrant aromas of raisins, dried figs and brown sugar. If you’ve tasted and liked our coffees from Nachammai and Seethargundu Estates, you’ll love the complex, tea-like flavours of this one. The plush, creamy mouthfeel of this medium-bodied light roast can be best brought out when brewed as a Pour Over or using an AeroPress.
Due to unseasonal rains in the past harvest, the team at Kerehaklu Estate innovated with climate-forward measures to process this lot. This involved de-pulping and fermenting the coffee for 24 hours, followed by slow-drying in a well-ventilated warehouse for 42 days. To finish off, the coffees were laid under the sun on the last day of drying to stabilize the moisture and water activity. This process has been named the ‘Polypore Process’ — an ode to the long-drawn process of growing Polypore mushrooms in the warmer months.
