⚙️ : 240 hour fermented naturals
the estate : kalledeverapura
The lush estate is situated at an altitude of around 4400 feet above sea level in the picturesque Bababudangiri Hills in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. Kalledeverapura grows selection 795 which is bird friendly and shade grown since the estate is covered with Jack Fruit, Fig, and Silver Oak trees. The temperature in this region ranges from 12-32°C with the harvest taking place from January to March.(1)
Kalledevarapura has some of the best shade among all Indian coffee farms. Unusually low rainfall also contributes to superior beans, many of which have won Flavor of India/Fine Cup awards (the Indian equivalent to Cup of Excellence).
D.S. Shankar’s family has been growing coffee here for four generations. Our long relationship with this family enables us to secure both unusual microlots as well as hard to secure ones (i.e. Selection 9 beans). His family also owns Harley Estate, which his brother D.M. Purnesh runs (2)
what i want to remember
firstly, thank you @shravands for thinking of me. i would have missed this nanolot if it wasn’t for your kind gift.
this coffee is an experimental lot from @kalledevarapuracoffee that has been processed and roasted by @thebeanrove.
when shravan initially dm-ed he mentioned 240 hours. i assumed it was a typo for 24 hours. not wanting to seem like the newbie iam, i refrained from asking him, hoping the details would be on the pack.
turns out the coffee has been processed for 240hours – 10 days!!
my next thought was about how funky would the funkiness be and if i had to be polite in case the coffee turned out to be overpowering or bitter 😬
thankfully this is a great cup of coffee. good earthy cup with hints of mulled wine in both aroma and brew. full bodied and such a pleasant and long aftertaste. 🙌🏽

if you can get your hands on this beauty, it’s not to be missed.
