India - Riverdale Estate - Carbonic Maceration - Lot 10
We are always excited to have these coffees in the roastery as they are undoubtedly some of the best coffee from India. We've visited Prakash at Riverdale and have a strong connection with him and the farm workers, making this coffee extra special to us. This coffee is a Carbonic Maceration Process, which expands on Prakash's offering of high fidelity processing and experimentation.
The coffee is picked, float sorted and then fermented in an anoxic environment which favours yeasts and lowers the risk of unwanted fermentation flavours.
Riverdale Estate is a 100% specialty coffee farm located in Shevaroy Hills, in the Yercaud Area of Tamil Nadu in Southern India. Chris was fortunate enough to spend a week at the farm in 2018 and witness the passion and hard work that goes into this farm at every step. All of the coffees are picked by hand to ensure absolute cherry ripeness and are floated two to three times in float tanks, ensuring all floaters are removed, to have a very consistent density of coffees and remove defects. These coffees have been cared for meticulously throughout the growing, picking and processing processes, and the result shows in the cup!
