Our anaerobic natural from Thogarihunkal Estate is back! A sip of this coffee will leave you with a sweet aftertaste of toffee and chocolate once it cools down. If you’ve previously tried our natural coffees from Hoysala, Kudiraipanjan and Orchardale Estate, you’ll love this medium roast’s flavours of mulberry, apple, and milk chocolate. This heavy bodied coffee with its sweet aromas of dried berries is best enjoyed when brewed as an espresso, pour over, AeroPress or in a French Press.
For this lot, ripe coffee cherries were hand-sorted and stored in sealed barrels for 48 hours, devoid of oxygen, for anaerobic fermentation. Post-fermentation, the cherries were laid out in the sun on raised drying beds where a garden net was used on top to avoid excess sunlight, and then shifted to a shaded facility for slow-drying.
Tasting Notes: Mulberry, Apple, Milk Chocolate
Roast Level: Medium
Thogarihunkal Estate is located in Chikmagalur on the rolling hills of Baba Budangiri, the birthplace of Indian coffee. This estate is managed by the Gowda brothers, Mallanna and Chenna Basave, whose family has been in the coffee business since 1857. At 1350m above sea level, the estate has maintained separate blocks for Arabica and Robusta, which are then segregated by varietal. Chandragiri, Selection 795, and micro lots of Selections 5 and 7 are the Arabica varieties that are grown on the estate.VISIT FARM
