Pink Guava & Shiraz is the result of our exciting association with young Danish Ali of Caffeine Nirvana who operates Zoya Estate in the Baba Budan Giri region. Meticulously handpicked ripe and juicy cherries from an altitude of 1275 meters above sea level were subjected to a strictly monitored anaerobic fermentation process in airtight bags. The fermentation was allowed for a period of 96 hours in an environment of high temperature and low humidity. The bags were strategically placed in shaded areas to ensure controlled fermentation. Following this, the coffee was spread on mats and sundried over a period of 12 days. The gradual drying process allows the coffee to develop maximum flavor potential which is later unlocked in the roasting stage.

Our filter profile highlights the exquisite features of this lot including a mild and pleasing grape-like acidity gracefully dancing on a medium-bodied, slurpy texture. This is followed by prominent notes of pink guava and sweet raisins evoking a tropical symphony on the palate. A delightful aftertaste of shiraz wine with subtle hints of almonds lingers on the taste buds to leave you with a satisfying finish.

We are proud to be associated with Caffeine Nirvana who are committed to producing coffees with more complexity each season. Young Danish has put his heart and soul into the production of this coffee and it has been a pleasure working by his side to bring this delightful lot into your cup.

Below are a few important notes from the planter,

We grow our coffee in thick and heavy shade. The main reason for the fruitiness and better bean taste in our coffee is the first layer of native fruit trees. These add to the humic acid content of the soil and nourishment.

Our region is at a particular point in the Chandra Drona hill range that, it is relatively dry in the summers and wet for 6-7 months, without any sunlight at all. This double whammy of climate is another reason for the regions superior bean quality, nothing less than an SCA score of 84.  The bean maturity is very slow and we traditionally used to start picking on December 25th.

We do not use any herbicide whatsoever, and no use of any harmful chemicals.

The plant varieties grown are Selection 795, Chandragiri and SL 5B, along with a few Catuai, Catimor and Bourbon.

5B is the most dominant variety, which has adapted to the climatic conditions very well and with superior bean characteristics, Brix level around 24-27.

We try to incorporate spiritual practices into our estate growing and how we do business. With the implementation of spirituality into everyday life, we feel effects of every single living organism connected to us and an increase in quality of life and happiness.
