The Arabica and Robusta chosen for this blend grow in Southern India, in the shade of large trees that also provide shelter for growing pepper and other spices. Grown on high altitude plantations, the Robusta we use is a very pure coffee, very intense and slightly bitter.
Cocoa and dry plant notes, as well as a spicy bouquet reminiscent of cloves, pepper and nutmeg.
The Arabica is lightly roasted to preserve its subtle aromas, while the Robusta is well roasted to reveal its intensity and develop a full body. A very fine grinding supports the body and enhances the flavor.
