Var. S795 – Green
India Mysore Plantation A
|Review Date:||January 2001|
Blind Assessment: A hint of Indian spice and perhaps some flowers in the nose, but rather unremarkable in the cup: simple, straightforward, pleasingly sweet when hot, bland and inert when cold. Perhaps the spice and flowers account for the high rating of this coffee relative to the others in the India cupping.
Notes: A mechanically wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade at elevations of approximately 3,800 feet. Produced from trees of variety S795, a complex contemporary hybrid. Plantation A is the highest normal grade of wet-processed India coffee based on bean size and absence of visual defects.
