It has been a tremendous journey introducing you to India’s most interesting coffees through The Poetry of Coffee Collection. We bring you our tenth and final lot of this celebrated collection from Moganad Estate of MSP Coffee in the Shevaroys. This selectively handpicked lot was fermented using Papaya fruit that increases the complexity of flavour and makes for a lipsmacking espresso. We dedicate it to the Zen Haiku Poet and master calligrapher Taigu Ryokan – an individual celebrated for his unconventional, creative endeavours in the two fields of his expertise.

The evolution of specialty coffee must be credited to bold producers who take risks, challenge the conventional and produce unexpected works of art in their coffees. Navin Rajes is one such Indian producer who breaks boundaries and produces spectacular coffees year after year through his unconventional methods of processing. Using fruit in the fermentation stage of processing introduces different variations of microbial activity that can have a great impact on the end flavour. Combined with our tailored roasting techniques, this lot of papaya fermented naturals delivers an espresso with an interesting combination of spice and fruit notes. Discover clove, banana and pomegranate in your espresso and marry it to milk for a sweet and heavy-bodied beverage that is sure to surprise your taste buds!


In a valley located at the northernmost region of the Servarayan Hills in Tamil Nadu lies Moganad Estate – a crown jewel of one of India’s top coffee producers – MSP Coffee. At an altitude of around 1280 metres above sea level, the estate is a perfect spot for intercropping and is thus also a home to pepper, cloves and nutmeg which add their own exotic flavors to the coffee cultivated here.

The varietals of Arabica grown here include Selection 9, Selection 5B and Chandragiri.

Moganad received the “Best Robusta Coffee in India” in 2016 and was also featured in the September 2016 issue in the Global Coffee Report Magazine.
