MONTHLY MICROLOTS

We decided to do microlots because Indian coffee is simply far too diverse and heterogenous to standardise a roast and call it a day! Also, because we work directly with so many smallholder producers, we end up with beautiful but very small lots of coffee. For e.g. in 2018, 134 women in BR Hills harvested, hand-pulped and segregated coffee for us. This became Microlot 8! In 2019, Karadigod Estate honey-pulped a tiny bit of Arabica Parchment. This will also find its way into a microlot! 

MICROLOT 16 | JENU

This microlot is a milestone for our coffee growers. Careful pulping and drying to make a world class specialty coffee was always a dream, until now! Most people thought our producers couldn't do it. Smallholders don't care about coffee etc. How wrong! How delicious! This is a hand-pulped Arabica where the skin and pulp are removed but the mucilage was kept intact. The honey process, called so because coffee mucilage is sticky like honey, is of moderate acidity and a ton of sweetness.

THE INSPIRATION

Honey process coffee has become a rage across the world. It started off in Costa Rica in the early 2000s as a way to standardise washing units and regulate the amount of water used for 'washing' coffee. It really caught on during a spell of drought when producers just could not access the water needed for pulping and washing coffee. Depending on peoples' access to water, their coffee would range from white to yellow to red to black honey process - with the dark honey process removing the least amount of mucilage which means using the least amount of water for washing. Many of our coffees from BR Hills are default honey-ish. Hand pulpers hardly use water and there is no traditional 'washing' that you might see in other production areas. So we could call this a more intentional honey processed coffee!
