Impressive in taste …
In bag 4, the first Asian coffee of the calendar from India awaits me!
- The brand name ‘Little Flower’ comes from the wild Kurinji flower that blooms only every 12 years.
- A spicy arabica from the oldest coffee plantation in India.
- Organically grown at 1,500 m altitude in the south Indian Bababudangiri mountains
- on the 165 ha plantation ‘Ramgiri Estate’
- consists mainly of the Variety Selection 795, which was bred in 1946.
- The coffee has a full body, tastes of hazelnut and cocoa, almond and marzipan and has little acidity.
Let’s drink it the Indian way
- South Indian filter coffee specialty
- 70-80% medium-roasted and finely ground beans are mixed with 20-30% roasted chicory.
- A metal filter is used for the preparation.
- In the lower part of the filter comes the coffee mixture. Then the filter is put together, so that the coffee is compressed.
- Pour boiling water into the upper part of the filter, which then slowly drips through the coffee powder.
- The Kaapi is very strong. Therefore, only 1-2 tbsp. of the filter coffee is added to a cup of boiling milk and sweetened with sugar as required.
- Shake until frothy and serve in a typical stainless steel cup with saucer (Tumbler & Dabarah)
Tomorrow we will continue with bag 5!
