Roast: NA Review Date: January 2001
Origin: Baba Budan Hills, Chikmagalur District, Karnataka State, southern India. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A light, bright, fragrantly smooth cup. When hot alive with shimmers of citrus, spice, and nut tones. As the cup cools, however, a disturbing vegetative undertone surfaces: "grassy," "dried peas," "sour," panelists complained. A potentially superb coffee, an India version of the great, brightly nuanced coffees like Guatemala Antigua and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, but flawed by either processing/storage errors or too much unripe fruit.

Notes: A traditionally wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade at elevations of over 4,000 feet. From trees of the contemporary hybrid variety S795.

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.
