India Mysore Plantation A
Var. Kent – Green
The panel was divided on this coffee. Some admired its sweetness and rich, deeply dimensioned balance; others were put off by a slight off-taste read variously as soapy, bitter, or sour. A small and subtle flaw, but it apparently dragged down the rating of an otherwise quietly complex and sweetly resonant coffee.
A traditionally wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade. Produced from trees of the early 20th century hybrid var. Kent, the classic coffee variety of India. Plantation A is the highest normal grade of wet-processed India coffee based on bean size and absence of visual defects.
