Var. Kent - Green by India Mysore Plantation A Review |
  • India Mysore Plantation A

    Imported by Josuma Coffee
  • Var. Kent - Green

Roast: NA Review Date: January 2001
Origin: Chikmagalur district, Karnataka State, southern India. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The panel was divided on this coffee. Some admired its sweetness and rich, deeply dimensioned balance; others were put off by a slight off-taste read variously as soapy, bitter, or sour. A small and subtle flaw, but it apparently dragged down the rating of an otherwise quietly complex and sweetly resonant coffee.

Notes: A traditionally wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade. Produced from trees of the early 20th century hybrid var. Kent, the classic coffee variety of India. Plantation A is the highest normal grade of wet-processed India coffee based on bean size and absence of visual defects.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
