India Plantation AA – August Blowout Special!In Stock: 109 Lbs
Taste: Very smooth, with a pleasant nutty finish. This unobtrusive bean is an outstanding blender.
Roast: Accepts all roast levels, but we liked it best at Medium Dark (Full City). Gets bitter if over-roasted.
About: Coffee is grown in three regions of India with Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu forming the traditional coffee growing region. Indian coffee is said to be the finest coffee grown in the shade rather than direct sunlight anywhere in the world. Often inter-cropped with spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, the coffees gain aromatics from the inter-cropping, storage, and handling functions. Growing altitudes range between 1,000 masl to 1,500 masl for Arabica (premier coffee) and are planted in well-drained soil conditions that favor rich organic matter that is slightly acidic. India’s coffees tend to be moderately acidic which in this case leads to a balanced and sweet taste.
Washed Arabica beans are known in India as “Plantation” (not to be confused with estate coffees), while washed Robusta beans are referred to as “Parchment”. U-Roast-Em does not offer Robusta beans.
Arabica Grade designations for washed beans are as follows, from top grades to bottom grades:
- Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold
- Plantation-PB Bold
