100% recyclable cardboard box containing 10 individually packaged, rice paper, 100% compostable, single-portion pods of the famous and prestigious India Maysore Nuggets Extra Bold Coffee from the Bedouin: this is an Arabica variety, washed in the processing, which grows at around 1,110-1,500m above sea level. Note that it comes from India, Asia’s second-largest producer of coffee beans and the eighth largest producer in the world. India produces about 30% Arabica coffee and 70% Robusta coffee: the two botanical varieties are distinct and classified for washed or natural coffee and for the size of the 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.
India Plantation Mysore coffee is grown in the Indian region of Mysore, next to the pepper plantations. The aroma of Mysore has an essence of oriental perfumes with hints of incense, pepper, nutmeg and occasionally mint.
The coffee has a delicate taste of chocolate and Indian spices, with a touch of acidity. It is wet- treated (washed). Immediately after picking, the ripe drupes are separated from defective beans by soaking them in tubs that resemble pools. The selected drupes are fermented for around 24 hours in order to remove pulp and external mucilage and to naturally aromatise the actual coffee beans, thanks to the acids that are formed during this delicate process. Some of the food acids will contribute to the taste of the brewed coffee. The coffee bean is then cleaned and stripped of its parchment skin and quality-checked before it is put into bags to ensure the harvest is of the highest quality.
It is called “Bedouin coffee” because it was traditionally grown and sold to the Bedouins of the Arabian desert. Due to logistic requirements, green Mysore Nuggets are packed in special 10 kg bags. This type of Arabica is one of the best in the world and is grown on the high hills of the city of Mysore, 150 Km from Bangalore, the capital of the Indian State of Karnataka. “Bedouin coffee” comes from the best plantations at the highest altitude at which coffee can be grown: 1700 m above sea levels. The coffee is harvested, sorted, selected and bagged entirely by hand. It is a washed Arabica, valued triple A, (AAA) which is rare for Indian coffees. It is medium-bodied, sweet and aromatic with hints of tobacco and cacao and a malt and hazelnut aftertaste.
