Washed – Green
India Honnamatti Estate
|Review Date:||January 2001|
Blind Assessment: An impressive coffee, and distinctive in the India mode: sweet, svelte, smooth, balanced, with some intrigue that read as chocolate, nut, or spice (I tasted cardamom). "Big coffee, sweet," one panelist concluded.
Notes: A wet-processed or "washed" coffee grown under shade at elevations of 4,500 to 5,700 feet, making this coffee particularly high grown for Indias.
