India Kerala Malabar
This coffee has a unique taste that I suggest others try. I had never tasted Indian coffee before and very much enjoyed it. It is not "bold" but has a distinctive richness that I love.
As always, ordering from Layne is a breeze. Coffee arrived like lightning (shipping) and delivered the thunder (flavor)! All metaphors aside, I'll be re-ordering this bean as I found it to be a nice change of pace from some of the other beans I typically enjoy. Dry cocoa powder. hints of tobacco (yay!), and some stone fruit. Really delightful.
I enjoyed this coffee very much from the sampler. It brewed more like a light roast in a press, with a hint of nuttiness that was engaging. Different from the other coffees, clean finish and aftertaste.
I first tasted coffee from India a few years ago and fell in love. Now the romance is back...delicious and the description is spot on, starting with earth notes. I highly recommend this coffee, rich and unique.
I think this coffee has a really unique flavor and am enjoying it very much. I plan on making this a regular in my coffee rotation.
