    A really tasty Indian coffee with bright mix berry and citrus notes. Dark chocolate and earthiness on the front of the palate followed by the nice acidity. Smooth with good mouthfeel. Light-medium crema in volume but very persistent. Just a touch of spice.

    For me a nice contrast from some Indian coffee that is very earthy. This has a touch of it but without overwhelming the other characteristics.

    A great value on the Gandhi website for Indian coffee lovers.

    Cupping Method:Espresso, 95C on La Spaziale machine.

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
Bean Source Country: India
India is a huge country with diverse growing regions, such as Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu, each offering unique flavor profiles due to varied elevations, microclimates, and soil types. These coffees often exhibit low acidity, full body, and a range of flavors, including spicy, earthy, and chocolatey notes. These characteristics made Indian coffee sought after for blends, but the specialty coffee world is increasingly discovering the terroir of varied Indian lots.
Bean Source Region: Chikmagulur
Chikmagalur, nestled in the Western Ghats of Karnataka, India, is renowned for its specialty Arabica coffee, which is highly valued for its exquisite flavor and quality. The region's unique terroir, characterized by high altitude, rich volcanic soil, and a favorable climate, contributes significantly to the distinct taste profile of its coffee. Chikmagalur's Arabica beans are celebrated for their nuanced flavors, often featuring delicate floral notes, a gentle acidity, and a complex combination of fruity and spicy undertones.
