Roasting:  We think this coffee shines right at Full City (Medium) or just a hair before 2nd crack. However, it's very versatile and can take a range of roasts quite well, so experiment and roast to your liking! We also noted that it's quite dense and heavy with moisture, so you may need to increase your roasting temperature a touch more than usual.
 
Reminder:  This coffee is raw, you have to roast it before brewing.

 

Our Review: This selection is sourced from the Arabidecool Estate located near the Baba Budangiri hills in the Western Ghats mountain range within the state of Karnataka, India. In the Baba Budangiri hills there is a shrine for Baba Budan, the Sufi saint who first cultivated coffee in India with seven raw beans from Mocha that he brought from his pilgrimage to Mecca in the 17th century. The farm exemplifies the full spirit and intention of RFA certification. Yes a commercial farm, but also healthy biosphere under an impressive canopy of old growth trees. A home to blue parrots, snakes, monkeys, and a host of other critters who are tolerated despite their appetite for ripe cherries. The Baba Budangiri hills are also home to the Neelakurinji flower, which only blooms every twelve years. The Arabidecool Estate covers 142 hectares with a distinct micro-climate that is reflected in the cup profile.

Speaking of the cup, this coffee is an absolute delight. It's creamy, rich, just slightly complex, warm and inviting. Notes of sweet caramel and toasted coconut are joined with nutmeg and anise and are followed by a quick finish. Wonderful as a single origin whether brewed with drip or espresso, it also adds sugar and spice to any blend! Finally, it takes nearly all roast levels well so start right at Full Medium as a baseline, then try a variety of roasts to see which one highlights your favorite parts of this coffee the best.
