India Mysore Nuggets
|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Southern India|
|Review Date:||July 2004|
Luxuriously sweet, delicately pungent, with tart but lush tropical fruit notes, tamarind perhaps, running through the profile from aroma to finish. The tamarind fruit notes incline toward a richly raisin-toned chocolate in the long finish.
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. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit
