First a disclaimer. There are no certified organic Indian coffees, and I’m not sure if this one was grown organically. It probably was based on the fact that is it a high altitude, high quality coffee. But that's my only basis.
India is an underrated coffee. It is grown right up there near Yemen, near Africa, and has a clean, gentle, nutty taste that you would think would give it more credit in the coffee world. This one has a subtle spiciness to it, and the aroma reminds me of cinnamon, the initial taste of hazelnuts and an aftertaste of nutmeg. It’s not a dirty-tasting coffee, and actually has a creamy quality, and a sweet grain-like quality to it that reminds you of a high quality south american coffee. A friend remarked it reminded her of a combination of Chai tea and coffee. What else would you expect from India? They grow coffee alongside their spices.
It’s good on any roast level, but I tend to let it out a few seconds into the second cracks, or else a nice French Roast well into the rolling 2nds. My sweet spot on it is a bean temperature of 412 degrees; or a melenge blend of equal parts of 398 and 418 is equally enjoyable.
It seems to be a versatile and forgiving coffee. This is 2012 crop that just came in 9-2012. It is a washed process coffee.
