Super healthy, robust beans are bursting with rich coffee flavor. This is a "back-pallet" delight, with low acidity, high body, and smooth, lingering finish. Kaapi Royal is a term used for Robusta beans that are screened above the 16mm standard for Arabica, which is very unusual, since Robusta is usually smaller than Arabica.
Robusta in India is grown in rich soil at altitudes higher than typical in the rest of the world, and lovingly cultivated to specialty coffee cupping standards. The parent plants were likely imported into India over a century ago from Sumatra, and they have the same chocolatey profile as beans brought into Indochina (including Vietnam) by French Jesuits circa 1890-1920. We are offering this coffee as a stand-alone single origin of exceptionally quality, and also creating some new blends in which the rich, earthy flavor of these beans will shine.
We find these green unroasted beans to have a number of optimal roast temperatures, from 430° to 460° (Light to Dark). When roasted Dark they take on a nice caramel, smoky tone. Very smooth, buttery profile for the lighter roasts.
