Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Seethargundu Estate is nestled in the Nelliyampathy hills which is located in the Palakkad district of Kerala in South India. It is one of 28 areas in the world recognised by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) due to the rich biodiversity found there. 27% of the country’s plant species can be found in this region & coffee grows amongst tea, cardamom, orange, pepper and vanilla plantations. The Nelliyampathy hills run adjacent to the Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary where wild elephants, leopards and bison can be found roaming the area.

Biodynamic + Organic + RFA - India is the 6th largest coffee producing country in the world. Sadly around 75% of the coffee produced their is low quality Robusta. Fortunately private farms and a few co-operative are starting to move towards high quality, speciality grade coffee farming methods.

Coffee is planted under a double canopy of shade resulting in an incredible habitat for bird-life. Much of the area is protected and the soil is rich in humus. The estate employs around 500 workers during the harvest season who select ripe red cherry and deposit it at the estate’s wet mill where dense cherries are separated from unripes in a floatation tank before being pulped using a McKinnon depulper. The pulped beans then undergo dry fermentation before being washed to remove the sticky mucilage and are finally laid to dry on patios for a period of up to 10 days dependent on weather. Once dry, the parchment beans are then sent to a dry mill around 60km from the estate to be rested, milled and packed for export.

Arabica Varietal Selection 9 is a derivative of a cross between an Ethiopian Arabica collection, ‘Tafarikela’, and ‘Hybrido-de-Timor’. Selection 9 has inherited all the superior cup quality traits of Tafarikela. This successful hybrid incorporates an Ethiopian coffee variety in its heritage, which no doubt contributes to its exotic East Africa character. The owners - POABS Organic Estates - won the Award for Best Speciality Arabica at the ‘Flavour of India – The Fine Cup Cupping Competition 2013’ organised by Coffee Board of India.
