ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Coffee was first introduced to India in the 17th century.
During a pilgrimage to Yemen, Saint Baba Budan discovered green coffee beans and brought some back with him to India where the very first crop was grown in the Baba Budan Giri Hills.
The term “Mysore Nuggets” was given by Westerners to distinguish premium beans being produced in India. It is also the traditional market name for coffees from south-central India. This particular Indian Mysore Nugget arabica coffee is produced in the shaded rainforests of southern Mysore. Owing to their northern tropical latitude and the tempering influence of the ocean, the slopes of India’s southwestern mountains supply ideal growing conditions.
Skillful hand pickers harvest each cherry individually at their peak ripeness. The resulting beans are very large in size (Screen #19) with a dark-green and faintly blue appearance.
Note: Wet processed Indian coffees are called Plantation Arabica.
