  • Washed - Green

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

Blind Assessment: I found this coffee pleasantly sweet but flat to a fault. Other panelists complained of a subdued but clear defect, mustiness perhaps. One complainant found this shadow defect ambiguously interesting: "harmonic earthy & aromatic woods?" he asked himself.

Notes: A wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade at elevations of between 3,600 and 4,000 feet. Among specialty coffee insiders Pearl Mountain Estate has one of the finest reputations among India coffees regularly imported into the United States.


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.
