My Christmas Presents Indian Coffee from Karnataka Chikmagalur

I got 5 pounds of Indian Karnataka Chikmagalur beans from Burman to roast at home and give as gifts. I really like this coffee. It is very well described here in the paper I included with each gift. It is shared below. The region sounds very interesting. I would love to visit some time.

Indian Karnataka Chikmagalur

Tasting Notes:
A great Indian coffee. The aroma is nutty, woody, and some slight smokiness. The taste is classic. Many of the notes in the aroma come through in the flavor like walnuts and some smoke. There’s dark fruit, oak, licorice, and some vanilla tones, like a good dry red wine. The finish has a subdued brightness to it with just hints of lemon zest. The body is medium to full depending on roast and brew. There’s a reason people keep coming back to this bean. It’s a smooth all around great cup of coffee.

The world’s best shade-grown ’mild’ coffees

Indian coffee is the most extraordinary of beverages, offering intriguing subtlety and stimulating intensity. India is the only country that grows all of its coffee under shade.

Indian coffee has a unique historic flavour too! It all began with a long, arduous journey around four hundred years ago... when the legendary saint Bababudan brought seven magical beans from distant Yemen and planted them in the Chandragiri hills of Karnataka. The sensations of aroma, flavour, body and acidity that you enjoy with each coffee experience is rooted in these mystical beginnings.

Coffee plantations in India are essential spice worlds too: a wide variety of spices and fruit crops like pepper, cardamom, vanilla, orange and banana grow alongside coffee plants.

Chikmagalur is a hill station in Karnataka, a state in southwest India. To the north is Baba Budangiri, a mountain range in the Western Ghats, with 3 large caves said to be holy. Trails through forests and grasslands lead up to Mullayanagiri Peak. The cascading Hebbe Falls lie in an area of coffee plantations. The forested Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary, northwest of Chikmagalur, is home to elephants, tigers and leopards.
