KNOW THE COFFEE
The Wanderoo is a washed Arabica of the Selection 9 varietal that has been carefully hand pulped to ensure that each bean is completely damage free. The result is a sweet, bright cup of coffee with dark chocolate and nutty flavour notes and balanced acidity.
KNOW THE GROWER
This beautiful Arabica coffee comes from our partner farmer producer organisation in the Biligirirangan Hills, an incredibly lush deciduous forest on the confluence of the Western and Eastern Ghats. This 400 member strong FPO is dreaming big about the wellbeing of their community and we are equally committed to enabling them to find their way.
Wanderoo, is an ancient Sinhalese word that means forest-dweller and we are using it to describe the majestic Lion-Tailed Macaque. The Wanderoo is an Old World Monkey endemic to Southern India. It spends the majority of its life in the upper canopy of trees in rainforests feeding on fruit. Only 3000-3500 Wanderoos live today making it one of the world’s rarest and most threatened primates. Its range is increasingly isolated because of habitat destruction, including from the expansion of coffee plantations. So, we are asking if we can grow a cup of coffee in a way that protects rather than destroys the Wanderoo's habitat?
TASTING NOTES DONE OUR WAY
KM: This one smells like a window. In a French Press, it tastes nicely metallic, like a chain.
SK: This is a minor revolution, not like 1918 but rather 1848.
KN: Its got good acidity and is really bright, especially the medium roast. Its so smooth that I find I don’t need milk and sugar.
AUB: It’s my go-to and I almost always use an Aeropress. It feels heady but balanced.
