Know the grower

The Arabica coffee beans have been hand pulped in BR Hills by members of our sister organisation,  the Biligiri Soligara Coffee Belegarara Sangha. No chemical inputs have been used. We are currently using beans harvested by producers in Yerakannagadde podu.

The Robusta is a natural and sun-dried cherry that comes from the Agasteshwara Temple Estate in Guyya, Kodagu. No chemical pesticides have been used but there is use of 1.6 kilos of NPK fertiliser per coffee plant.

Tasting Notes

IG: I’m wrapping my head around this one. As a pour over, its easy like the hills but in an Aeropress it becomes hard pressed, Rocky V-like.

KM: I like the Ficus in an Aeropress because its bark-like and spicy.

KN: This coffee gives me the chance to dust off all my brewing equipment because it literally tastes like a dream across brewing methods.

SK: It feels like somebody passed a nice note about in class.

AUB: Bassoon notes.

The inspiration

Ficus or fig trees are a keystone species. Fruits of Ficus trees are consumed across the animal kingdom – especially birds. Hornbills, barbets, pigeons and bulbuls may entirely subsist on figs when these are plenty. Ficus trees have also profoundly influenced cultures across several religious traditions – Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. In coffee farms, Ficus trees are a centrepoint for our conservation efforts. We monitor their abundance, diversity, shade canopy and the wildlife species that depend on them.
