This coffee is from the Ratnagiri estate, meaning Pearl Mountain when translated, in India. This is an excellent coffee that benefits from the organic and biodynamic farming approach used by the producer, Ashok Patre. Ratnagiri estate has been in operation under the Patre family since 1920, being passed down from grandfather, to father, to son. Ashok has spent many years travelling to other origin countries and taking the best from their practices and incorporating them into his own operation at Pearl Mountain (Ratnagiri Estate).
A delicate cup with a slightly nutty, toffee flavour that is well-balanced with green apple, raspberry and milk chocolate. It has a medium-high body and acidity that comes across perfectly smooth and mellow.
