  • India Full City Roast

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: August 2002
Origin: Baba Budan Giri growing region, southern India. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Both Ken and Chris find the aromatics and body of this dark roast impressive but the finish distracting. Ken: "Superb aroma, intense, sweet dark-roast character with shimmers of tart grapefruit and milk chocolate. The roast taste pleasantly dominates in the cup but turns charred in the finish" (rating 84). Chris: "Opens with nutty, caramel candy; smooth body in the cup. Cools to a touch of earthy, metallic flavor" (rating 87).

Notes: Nandipura Coffee is a fifth-generation, family-owned coffee company. From the 2001/2002 crop. Visit for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who will put up with a problematic finish for the sake of an impressively aromatic, big-bodied dark-roast cup.


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.
