Thogarihunkal Estate – HSD
Our honey sun dried coffee from Thogarihunkal Estate has a beautiful aroma of marmalade and prune along with tasting notes of mosambi, peach and red grape. This particular lot was processed using the honey sun dried method in which coffee beans are dried with a sticky layer of mucilage (pulpy layer between the bean and skin) on them — lending fruity flavours to the final cup. Brew this medium roast as an espresso or pick from a variety of manual brewing options such as Moka Pot, Pour Over, AeroPress or a French Press to enjoy its medium body and creamy mouthfeel, finished off with a hint of sweet orange. This coffee has medium acidity and ranks low on the bitterness scale.
Thogarihunkal Estate is located in India’s coffee heartland, Chikmagalur. This estate is managed by the Gowda brothers, Nandan and Abishek, whose family has been in the coffee business since 1857. The estate uses modern processing facilities to transform the cherries into green coffee. These include two pulping units, multiple fermentation tanks, spacious drying yards, and raised beds.
