Toffee and gardenia aromas with a subtle effervescent citrus acidity, smooth, milk chocolate tones and creamy mouthfeel. An impeccably clean, delicate finish. This coffee shines in the press and as espresso.
We have acquired this rare Indian, variety specific micro lot is its entirety. The lot comprises nine bags which translates to approximately 950 pounds. Selection 795 is a little known Coffea arabica variety as it is not commonly cultivated outside of India. It is a cross between the Kent arabica variety and Selection 288 which is a natural hybrid between Coffea arabica and Coffea liberica.
The Devon #795 has been shade grown under the attentive and ecologically considerate guidance of Prem Kurian. Prem oversees all of the Devon Estates, of which Badnekan is a part. Badnekan is a carefully stewarded polyculture forest farm and this coffee has been cultivated without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers.
