Thalanar Estate clings to the Anaimalai Mountains in the South of India. The beans grown here come from high altitude and produce coffees with citrus, berry and nutty notes over a lingering dark chocolate.
Tamil Nadu is an area in Southern India, famous for wildlife as well as coffee. Yahava has developed a direct relationship with this renowned estate and sources all of our much-loved Kahava coffee beans exclusively from Thalanar. What will impress is just how clean the flavours are.
The Body & Brightness Profiles:
When you first taste a coffee, you should first assess its body or mouth feel and also just how acidic or bright it is. You may like a coffee that has a whole lot of body but with low acidity. Or you may like a mellower mouth feel but a brighter acidity. It really is a personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
Kahava has a bold body and a medium brightness.
The Flavour Profiles:
What sets each individual coffee apart will be the flavours or what we call the “tasting notes”. The tasting notes are many and varied ranging from floral to nutty, spicy to berry, chocolaty to citrusy, just to name a few. These flavours make each coffee very different and so special. Where the coffee is grown, climate, elevation, soil type and harvesting techniques will all impact on the flavour so unique to each coffee.
