  • Producers: Nisha Thomas, Kurian George, Anaika
  • Region: Coorg
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 950 MASL
  • Process: Anaerobic Fermented Naturals

Malabar Squirrel’s Leap is a pleasant dream encapsulated in a lot of coffee – a shared dream between Nisha Thomas, her husband George Kurian, their little daughter Anaika, and charming pup Bella who’ve crafted a captivating Arabica that marries aromas of spice to sweet notes in the cup. Anaerobic Naturals continue to storm the coffee universe with their complex cups and funky expressions. They also display peculiar reactions to heat making them very difficult to roast with an omni profile. We’re happy that an omni profile was possible for this one making it accessible to espresso and manual brew lovers.

A mild black pepper aroma leads to a medium-bodied cup and balanced acidity with notes of cashews and prunes. Enjoy!

Anaikadu Peradeniya Naturals (India)

from 380.00
  • Producers: Nisha Thomas, Kurian George, Anaika
  • Region: Coorg
  • Type: 100% Fine Robusta
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 950 MASL
  • Process: Aerobic Naturals
  • Varieties: Old Peradeniya
  • Flavor Notes: Butter Cookies, Cinnamon, Almonds

At many workshops, we tell coffee enthusiasts that the first step in mastering Fine Robusta is to process and roast a coffee that is palatable to someone used to the best Arabicas. It must leave no unpleasant impressions and allow you to finish the entire cup. The next step is to enhance the characteristics of a Robusta that are unique – its creamy/buttery texture and strong chocolate notes. The final step is to extract some form of complexity that makes the coffee memorable. While Robusta has a long way to go before gaining affection from the global coffee community, Indian Robusta has made huge leaps of progress.

Nisha and Kurian have shared this wonderful Fine Robusta with us that we’re happy to bring to your doorsteps. Its mild acidity, pleasant sweetness, and bold buttery body remind you that Robusta is not always to be endured but also enjoyed. Dive into a mild aroma of freshly baked butter cookies and notes of cinnamon spice and almonds. A sweet and lingering finish will seal a place for this lot in your mind palace of coffee memories. This is not our first Robusta, and it surely won’t be our last. Enjoy it bold in espresso or sweet and balanced in manual brews. Milk is most welcome, but not needed. Cheers!

Candied Mandarin – Ratnagiri Carbonic Washed

from 685.00
  • Producers: Ashok Patre
  • Region: Chikmagalur
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 1350 MASL
  • Process: Carbonic Washed
  • Varieties: Catuai
  • Flavor Notes: Lavender aroma and sweet malic acidity with rounded buttery body. Notes of mandarin, peach and black currant leading to a grapy finish.

Our first Omni Roast in the showcase series is a resounding sensation from Ratnagiri Estate. ‘Candied Mandarin’ embodies the pinnacle of coffee craftsmanship, having undergone a highly controlled 90-hour extended carbonic maceration washed process. Cherries, meticulously picked at a brix of 23, were subjected to de-pulping before being placed in stainless steel fermenters. These vessels were purged with carbon dioxide gas, nurturing a 90-hour fermentation process, aimed at extracting the utmost complexity of flavors. After this rigorous fermentation, the produce was cleansed with clear water and steeped for a full 24 hours. A patient drying procedure on raised beds extended over 27 days rounded off the process.

The culmination of this precise process is a unique and intriguing cup. With a discernible lavender aroma and vibrant malic acidity, it expresses a rounded and luscious tactile quality. Notes of peach, black currant, and mandarin lead to a gratifying, grapy finish. Whether utilized for sweet and syrupy espresso shots, or savored in a meditative pourover, ‘Candied Mandarin’ delivers a silky-smooth coffee replete with a symphony of fruity nuances. This offering is yet another shiny gem in the Ratnagiri portfolio and brims with delight. Savor the experience!

Kilimbi Honey Red Bourbon (Rwanda)

from 550.00
  • Producer: Joseph Ntarindwa
  • Region: Nymasheke
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 1650 – 1850 MASL
  • Process: Honey Sun Dried
  • Varieties: Red Bourbon
  • Flavor Notes: Rooibos Tea, Red Apple, Champak

This is the first time we are bringing you a lot from Rwanda and we are thrilled that it is honey sun dried – the popular post-harvest method that has only been recently implemented in Rwanda and is attracting amazing feedback from roasters around the world. Furthermore, the varietal in this lot is Red Bourbon and it’s grown at a  staggering altitudes of 1650 – 1850 MASL which sets up a recipe for definite deliciousness. This coffee comes from Joseph Ntarindwa who runs the award-winning Kilimbi Washing Station – the first producers and exporters of honey processed coffees in the history of Rwanda.

Similar to other coffees in this region, you will get subtle tea-like and sweet herbal notes in your cup. Our omni roast sets up potential for great results in espresso and manual brew with the former requiring some experimentation from the brewer’s end to achieve the ideal levels of acidity and sweetness. As you grind your beans or first unzip your bag of ground coffee, immerse yourself in the very subtle and citric aroma of Magnolia Champaca (Champak). Rooibos tea and sweet red apple are notes to look out for in your cup that will have a medium tactile and a milk chocolate hint in the aftertaste. Our journey with Rwanda has just begun! We would love to have you join us on what promises to be a long expedition.

With revolutionary advancements in farming, fermentation and post-harvest processing, our producers are now inducing a great deal of excitement in the Robusta space. This washed lot from Venkids Valley estate delivers a lip-smacking espresso with spicy expressions of nutmeg and cardamom and a strong dark chocolate finish. Our omni-roast has helped tailor this lot for an interesting experience in manual brews as well with Pourover brewing and Aeropress delivering a full-bodied cup with similar spice notes and an underlying jaggery sweetness.
