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.

from 380.00
  • Producers: Nisha Thomas, Kurian George, Anaika

  • 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!

If you love surprises as much as we do, go ahead and try it in a Kalita or an Aeropress!

This coffee comes from Attikan Estate – a farm passionately nurtured over decades and proudly managed and pushed to new heights by current generation coffee producers Appadurai Sriram and his wife Hamsini. Attikan or the ‘White Hill’ is eternally soaked with mist giving the coffee a unique taste profile. The farm is situated at the highest altitude where coffee is cultivated in South India . Being flanked by a reserve forest, the wilderness helps Attikan maintain its pristine nature with no electricity or mobile connectivity.

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.

Process:

Block name: Doddagandi Upper Block
Block details: Avocado, fig and jackfurit in canopy and understory

  • 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!

Cascara – Ratnagiri Coffee Cherry Tea

from 350.00
  • Producer: Ashok Patre
  • Region: Chikmagalur
  • Type: Dried Coffee Cherry Skin
  • Altitude: 1340 MASL
  • Process: Sun Dried
  • Flavor Notes: Rosehip, Hibiscus, Tamarind, Cherry

Back in 2005, fifth generation award winning coffee producer from El Salvadar, Aida Batlle, arrived for a cupping session where she detected a pleasant, hibiscus-like aroma that filled the room. On enquiring with the other coffee tasters in the room, they pointed at the husks from the recently milled coffee. Being the curious producer that she was, she picked up some of the husks, cleaned them up and threw them into hot water to see what concoction would result. To her surprise, she was amazed with the flavourful tea that had resulted and called her customers in excitement to tell them about the delicious infusion she had just created. Finding “pulp” to be a yucky word, she decided to call the dried coffee cherry husks “Cascara”- the Spanish word for the skin of a fruit.

Almost two decades later, producers all around the world have found a higher place for their coffee cherry husks in the complex coffee value chain. We bring you high quality single estate Cascara from India’s very own Ratnagiri Estate so you can brew a pleasing, delicious Tisane with low caffeine content whenever you’re in the mood for a different caffeinated beverage.

Recipes

Hot

Step 1: Use 10g of cascara which you can place into your carafe.

Step 2: Boil 200g of water and let it sit for around 45 seconds so it cools down to around 96 Celsius. With a temperature controlled kettle, heat your water to 96 Celsius.

Step 3: Pour the water onto the cascara and agitate it for 20 seconds by stirring it.

Step 4: After four and a half minutes, strain out the tea. You can add sugar, honey or any other flavouring agents to create more interest in the beverage and serve!

Cold Brew

Step 1:  Use 50g of cascara which you can place into a flask or carafe.

Step 2: Pour 350g of room temperature water onto the cascara and agitate it for 40 to 60 seconds by stirring it. We will be using a ratio of 1:7, so if you wish to make more concentrate, you can measure out more cascara according to your needs and increase the amount of water used. If you want to make a stronger concentrate, use a ratio of 1:5.

Step 3: Make sure the container used is sealed and place it in a refrigerator for 16 – 20 hours.

Step 4: Remove the container from the refrigerator and strain out the concentrate. You can use a paper filter, a tea strainer, or any kind of filtering device.

Step 5: Serve the concentrate over ice (dilute to taste) or add other ingredients like tonic water, flavouring agents, honey or anything else that strikes your imagination to create your own signature beverage!

We will be using a ratio of 1:7, so if you wish to make more concentrate, you can measure out more cascara according to your needs and increase the amount of water used. If you want to make a stronger concentrate, use a ratio of 1:5.

Step 3: Make sure the container used is sealed and place it in a refrigerator for 16 – 20 hours.

Step 4: Remove the container from the refrigerator and strain out the concentrate. You can use a paper filter, a tea strainer, or any kind of filtering device.

Step 5: Serve the concentrate over ice (dilute to taste) or add other ingredients like tonic water, flavouring agents, honey or anything else that strikes your imagination to create your own signature beverage!

Dates & Raisins is an effort at creating a sweet and viscous espresso that boasts of enough balance to ensure high performance in milk-based beverages too. The cherries were tenderly handpicked at an optimal brix level of 23 in the sprawling grounds of Baarbara Estate at altitudes ranging from 1170 to 1600 meters above sea level. They underwent stringent sorting to guarantee that only the ripest, most exquisite fruits made the cut. To maintain the coffee’s purity, pristine stream water was used to wash the cherries, washing away any impurities. This meticulous cleansing process guaranteed a clean slate for the next stages of production.

Following this, the cherries began their transformative journey. Carefully placed in fermentation tanks for precisely 48 hours, they underwent partial pulping without water, setting the stage for further flavour development in the drying process. The cherries were rested on elevated beds with a considerable amount of mucilage left on to create potential for their distinctive sweetness and character. Over the course of 22 days, shaded drying ensured the cherries were gently dehydrated, preserving their nuanced flavours and aromas.

Finca El Rubi Papayo – Naturals (Colombia)

from 1,380.00
  • Producer: Johanna & Heiner Lazo
  • Region: San Adolfo, Huila, Colombia
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 1650 -1800 MASL
  • Process: Naturals
  • Varieties: Papayo
  • Flavor Notes: Vanilla Essence, Honeydew Melons, Kiwi, Black Currant

We’re thrilled to celebrate our newest exotic rarity with you – Papayo Naturals from Finca el Rubi in Colombia. Papayo is a very rare varietal found only in the Huila department of Colombia. Initially assumed to be a Caturra mutation, genetic testing has revealed a closer relationship with Ethiopian Landrace (varietals native to Ethiopia). It gets its name, “Papayo,” from the appearance of the cherries that are oblong, resembling tiny papayas. This coffee is a truly opulent indulgence. We invite you to immerse yourself in the sweet and bustling aromas of vanilla essence and honeydew melons and revel in a luscious tactile experience, throwing out sweet notes of kiwi and black currant.

Nearly three decades ago, Heiner Lazo bought Finca el Rubi at San Adolfo, Huila, assisted by his parents, as a wedding gift for his future wife, Johanna. Here’s what he had to say about why he did it:

“This farm was a wedding present from me with the help of my parents. If you love your woman, you have to give her something special like a diamond or ruby. My love was so big that one ruby could not express it, so I gave her thousands of rubies, that looked much nicer to me, and it gave us much more than a stone could ever give to a person. All these coffee rubies helped us move forward and raise three beautiful daughters. When they are big enough and find their husbands to be, I will tell them what a real ruby is.”
