Getting product details...

From Casa Espresso:

Produced in the Ratnagiri Estate, this is their first ever Honey Processed coffee from this harvest. After picking, the coffee is de-pulped leaving some mucilage and is then dried on raised beds for 16 to 20 days, where further sorting and preparation takes place for these microlots. The coffee is raked and turned every 3 hours from the first day of drying, and covered in the evenings.

Location & Farmer

Ratnagiri Estate is situated at the top of a mountain range in the coffee producing area in Southwestern India. This estate has been in operation for many decades, being passed down from grandfather, to father to son. While initially the son, Ashok, continued traditional farming practices. He has since spent many years travelling to origin countries, visiting well-known farms and taking from the best of their practices and incorporating it into his operation at Pearl Mountain. His farm is a lush shaded environment with 3 stories of shade. The farm is home to over 48 recorded bird populations, monkeys, leopards, wild boar, tigers, mongoose and, on occasion, elephants.
