Bukowski 2023 – Kerehaklu Snakehead Naturals (Microlot)

from 380.00
  • Producers: Pranoy Thipaiah, Ajoy Thipaiah
  • Region: Chikmagalur
  • Type: 100% Fine Robusta
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 1160 MASL
  • Process: Snakehead Naturals
  • Varieties: CxR Robusta
  • Flavor Notes: Clove, Vanilla, Pastry

Looking through the windows of De Longpre apartment near LA’s Thai Town, Charles Bukowski lived most of his years in the sixties and the seventies alchemizing the rugged, coarse and ugly aspects of Los Angeles into his transformative and beautiful verses. A very talented poet who converted some of life’s strangest, darkest and disturbing moments into vividly moving imagery, he is to be appreciated for his tremendous ability to enable anyone to find delight even in life’s roughest experiences. Robusta coffee – Arabica’s sister in the shadows is considered inferior, rougher and undesirable. But Pranoy Thipaiah of Kerehaklu Estate is writing a refreshing new chapter in the grand tale of Fine Robusta coffee and we are proud exponents of it. We present to you this unique lot of Snakehead Naturals Robusta dedicated to Charles Bukowski.

If the great modern poets could be compared to coffees, all of them would be specialty Arabicas, but good old Charles would stand out as a Fine Robusta. Perceived as too rugged, too bold and sometimes too mad, all it took was a single reading of a few of his raw verses to experience the phenomenal depth of the man. We invite you to experience our Fine Robusta masterpiece – conceptualized and brought to fruition by the passion, creativity and hard work of Pranoy Thipaiah – that will change your opinion of Robustas henceforth and widen your horizons of coffee understanding. Our light to medium filter roast reveals gentle spice notes of clove that diplomatically make way for hints of vanilla and a sweet pastry finish. Expect a full-bodied cup, silky texture throughout and a pleasant bitterness that lingers for just the right amount of time. Bukowski was judged, misunderstood, rejected and even hated. He didn’t seem to care and went about his poetry and craziness in absolute style. It didn’t take much time for his rebutters to turn into exalters. Kerehaklu’s daring Robusta lot holds its very own form of magic. Here’s your chance to experience it.

Thoreau – Kerehaklu Weaver Washed (Microlot) – 2023

from 515.00
  • Producers: Pranoy Thipaiah, Ajoy Thipaiah
  • Region: Chikmagalur
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 1160 MASL
  • Process: Weaver Washed
  • Varieties: Selection 9
  • Flavor Notes: Lemon, Green Grapes, Floral

Our first washed lot in The Poetry of Coffee Collection comes from Kerehaklu Estate – owned, managed and nurtured by Ajoy Thipaiah and his son Pranoy. They share a great connection with their land and an immense passion for farming and processing coffee. With a strong focus on how their practices influence the ecosystem and the surrounding environment, they bring stunning coffees to roasters across India and around the world. Their process thrives on phenomenal attention to detail which in turn assists the roaster in understanding the coffee treasure being worked with to achieve a perfect transformation from green to roasted coffee. It is a rare and special ability to draw upon the most detailed observations in nature and the happenings around one to construct arduous works of art that are shrouded in curious metaphor but conceal the most beautiful truths about the earth and the universe around us. It is only fitting for us to dedicate this lot to Henry David Thoreau – the masterful transcendental author of the renowned literary work  Walden.

Thoreau wrote a great deal about his solitary life in nature and how true contentment was found in learning to live in self-sufficiency. The illumination of Thoreau was a consequence of his deep understanding of nature’s harmonies which were a result of his simple day-to-day life lived in a small cabin beside Walden Pond. Experience Thoreau – an elegant, washed lot with floral aromas and notes of lemon and green grapes – a work of art born out of the harmony between arduous efforts of the Thipaiahs and the natural soul of Kerehaklu Estate.
