Cupping notes :
Whie cupping the dry aroma was fruity and just like the hard orange candy we all enjoyed as children. It is a good bodied, fruity coffee with balanced and sparkling acidity. It has a sweet and juicy texture which makes it a clean cup of good black coffee.
Roaster thoughts :
This coffee is reminiscent of my childhood and many more I believe. That hard orange candy like sweetness, the juicy texture and the fruity finish makes it a very unique coffee just like its varietal (KENT).
The estate :
CHETALLI, NORTH COORG.
Kogilahalla is a pristine valley estate nestled in the Western Ghats named after its chirpy inmates- the cuckoos (‘Kogile’ in local lingual). Kogilehalla is located at Chettali in Kodagu district at an altitude of 900m-1000m above sea level. As the first beams of the rising sun stroke the lofty greens hills and awaken the cuckoos to spread the morning song across the valley, an aromatic brew of Kogilehalla coffee seals the deal of bringing paradise down to earth. Owned and managed by Mr. Muthana Cariapa, a charismatic 3rd generation planter, this estate is a treasure-trove of wide varieties of indigenous flora and fauna. Naturally, the estate stands for sustainability of the environment and hence strives to maintain a symbiotic relationship with nature. The secret of the supreme quality of the coffee is the shelter provided by a canopy of indigenous trees like rosewood, jackfruit, fig and cedar. The coffee plants are intercropped predominantly with pepper vines, avocado and birds eye chillies.
The beans offered shall provide a blissful comfort to the soul of every coffee lover.
