Washed – Green
India Emerald Valley Estate
|Review Date:||January 2001|
Blind Assessment: Most of the panel found this coffee defective; "medicinal, nose-wrinkling," said one. Others acknowledged the defect but found some virtue in the cup, reading the mustiness as cedar or cardamom.
Notes: A wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade at elevations of 4,000 to 4,500 feet.
