Attikan White Mist (India)

from 450.00
  • Producers: Hamsini & Sriram Appadurai (Sangameshwar Coffee Estates)
  • Region: Bilgirirangana Hills
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Espresso Roast
  • Altitude: 1650 MASL
  • Process: Washed (Double Fermentation)
  • Varieties: SL9
  • Flavor Notes: Baker’s Chocolate, Roasted Nuts, Cedar

The first phrase that graced the lips of our Q-Grader when she analyzed this coffee was – “Bold and Beautiful.” By pushing this roast into medium dark territory, we get a lovely plethora of dark chocolate notes harmoniously dancing with nutty aromas and a rounded cedar finish. It is ideal for espresso brewing but is sure to be a favourite for Moka Pot enthusiasts and cold brew fanatics who experiment with cocktails and other brave concoctions. With excellent body and good solubility, espresso-brewing should be a breeze for professional and home-baristas alike. But hey, we’re not limiting this lot to 9-bar geeks alone. If you love surprises as much as we do, go ahead and try it in a Kalita or an Aeropress!

This coffee comes from Attikan Estate – a farm passionately nurtured over decades and proudly managed and pushed to new heights by current generation coffee producers Appadurai Sriram and his wife Hamsini. Attikan or the ‘White Hill’ is eternally soaked with mist giving the coffee a unique taste profile. The farm is situated at the highest altitude where coffee is cultivated in South India . Being flanked by a reserve forest, the wilderness helps Attikan maintain its pristine nature with no electricity or mobile connectivity.
