Indian Mysore by Kaffe Magnum Opus Review |
  • Kaffe Magnum Opus

    Millville, New Jersey
  • Indian Mysore

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2004
Origin: Southern India Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet, midtoned, and intensely fragrant with an odd but pleasingly complex of sweet citrus (orange and Meyer lemon?) and fresh-cut cedar. This striking aromatic combination hints at a sort of herb-toned chocolate toward the rich but slightly heavy, bittersweet finish.

Notes: Mysore is a traditional market name for wet-processed Arabica coffee from southern India. Kaffý Magnum Opus is a roaster, wholesaler and Internet retailer of quality specialty coffee. Visit or call 800-652-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Sensory adventurers. The intense citrus-in-cedar fragrance displayed by this coffee strikes me as one persuasive coffee analogy for the color and drama of India.


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.
