The extensive realm of espresso, as diverse and evolved as it is, remains tethered by limitations. While a roaster can experiment wildly with acidity, it remains imperative to uphold an acceptable degree of equilibrium. No matter how fruity and floral the notes, it is still essential to ensure a sumptuous mouthfeel that leaves an enduring imprint on the palate. Furthermore, a robust foundation of sweetness is pivotal in constructing a shot’s reputation for superior quality.

The pioneering endeavours of Mr. Ashok Patre from Ratnagiri Estate combine with the learning minds of our roasting team to bring you “Sugary Gooseberries” – a magical espresso roast that delves deep into dimensions of funkiness without dismantling the fundamental elements of a quality shot. Catuai cherries, harvested with a stellar brix level of 26 at an elevation of 1350 metres above sea level, underwent a closely monitored 96-hour carbonic maceration process. The fermentation process was executed within state-of-the-art stainless steel tanks (the levels of sterilisation upheld at Ratnagiri Estate are unparalleled and with continuous research and development, they are exponentially improved from one season to the next). Subsequent to fermentation, the produce was slow-dried on elevated beds with continuous stirring over a 31-day period.

This batch afforded our roasters the latitude to experiment with various parameters in order to craft a captivating coffee experience for you. Savour the opulent notes of sugared gooseberries, vibrant citric acidity, and a medium body with delicate undertones of graham crackers. The refined and harmonious interplay of flavours culminates in an intriguing walnut finish, leaving you with a delightful memory and an eager inclination to brew more. Happy espresso!
