Indian Mysore Nuggets by Paradise Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2004
Origin: Southern India Price: $7.95/14.08oz

Blind Assessment: Very sweet aroma with fresh peach and chocolate mid tones and balancing cedar bottom notes. Delicate in the cup with a gently tart acidity wrapped in a rather giddy sweetness. The fruit notes are cleanly wine-like.

Notes: Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold is the highest grade of Indian wet-processed Arabica coffee, based on very large bean size and virtual absence of visual defects. Mysore is a traditional market name for coffee from south-central India, Extra Bold refers to the very large bean size, and Nuggets, I take it, has something to do with preciousness, as in nuggets of gold. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit or call 763-433-0626 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of delicate white table wines.


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.
