The powerful coffee beans from India
This type of coffee comes from Mysore, located in the Karnataka region. This region accounts for as much as 80% of India's coffee production.
When tea first arrived in India, coffee beans had been cultivated for 200 years. This started in the 1600s. In India, coffee is drunk as Indian Filter Kaapi, which is made with a traditional metal filter and combined with foamed and boiled milk. Indian Filter Kaapi is derived from the British preference for coffee with milk.
These Indian coffees are grown in the shade, under jungle trees of 30 meters or higher. These jungle trees are maintained by the estate staff so that they regulate the amount of sunlight on the coffee bushes. The overhanging leaves also attract birds to visit and the falling leaves and organic matter improve the quality of the soil where the coffee bushes are located. The coffee bushes are picked by hand and dried in the sun after the cherry pulp has been removed.
All arabica coffee beans from India can be divided into complex categories. These categories are determined by screen size and number of defects. A, AB, B, C and PB are the commercially available grades. We have chosen the class A coffee bean, which indicates that they have a large screen size and few to no defects. During the roasting process, these beans give off a sweet, slightly peppery aroma.
