Our latest offering from our old partner farm, Thogarihunkal Estate, has subtle flavours of sweet lime, green grape and caramel. Perfect to start your day with, this medium roast is versatile and works across espresso based drinks and manual brewing methods. 

Thogarihunkal Estate is located 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. The estate maintains separate blocks for Arabica and Robusta, which are then segregated by varietal. Chandragiri, Selection 795, and micro lots of Selection 5 and 7 are amongst the varietals grown here.
