India Jumboor Estate Plantation A
|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Karnataka Estate, southern India|
|Review Date:||July 2004|
Blind Assessment: Sweet and fruity in the aroma with raisin and chocolate complication. In the cup delicate in mouthfeel, tartly sweet, and richly and roundly fruity. Cleanly sweet and rich in the short finish, though a slight but not unpleasurable astringency lingers in the long.
Notes: Jumboor is one of India?s most consistently distinguished estate names, with a string of top prizes in various cupping competitions. Plantation A is the second highest grade of Indian wet-processed Arabica coffee, with slightly smaller bean size and slightly more visual defects than the super grade, Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of new fruity red table wines.
