100% recyclable cardboard box containing 10 individually packaged, rice paper, 100% compostable, single-portion pods of the famous and prestigious India Kaapi Royale Plantation: Extra selection from the large beans. It belongs to the species Coffea Canephora (Robusta variety) and grows at an altitude of between 500 and 1,000 meters above sea level. It has a good body, almost non-existent acidity and is excellently balanced. It is one of the most typical and appreciated varieties of Robusta bean. Each ese pod is individually packaged in 100% recyclable material, to ensure the highest quality and the maximum freshness, whilst ensuring the utmost respect for the environment.
From the Indian highlands of Karnataka comes a 100% Robusta espresso with intense aroma, strong avour and notes of chocolate and spices. The high altitude and the nature of the plantation soil give this 100% Robusta maximum creaminess with a deep brown colour. Of high aromatic intensity, pleasant hints of chocolate and spices display on the nose alongside subtle notes of cereals and wood. Characterised by low acidity and a perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness, it makes a full -bodied espresso with a lingering dark chocolate aftertaste. India produces and exports both Arabica and Robusta coffee, with a production of 4.5 to 5 million bags depending on the year.
Arabica is divided into washed coffees: Plantation (A, B, C, Blacks, Bits), and natural coffees: Cherry (PB, AB, C, Black, etc).
Robusta is divided into washed coffees: Parchment (PB, AB, C) and natural coffees: Cherry (PB, AB, C and Blacks).
Besides the classic Arabica and Robusta described above, India also exports coffees processed in a particular way that belong to the category of “specialty coffees”. These are coffees with sift and cup characteristics that do not conform to standard classifications. The best-known specialities are Mysore Nuggets EB, washed Arabica and Robusta Kaapi Royale, the latter prepared with a Robusta Parchment AB coffee. Monsooned coffees are another speciality. These are stored in open sided- warehouses to allow the beans to absorb moisture. The coffee is subsequently stored in bags and exposed to the monsoon winds.
