Coffee isn't new to India. A renewed commitment to traceability and quality in every cup, however, is. That's Subko.
Subko Specialty Coffee Roasters has a singular striving: to highlight the complexity, care, and craft of the Asian specialty coffee value chain, whilst creating an experience that is focused on the Indian Subcontinent, where our partner plantations and estates are located.
FROM THE SUBCONTINENT. FOR ALL.
Now available to order in USA, UK and UAE.
We work in direct trade relationships at origin with coffee estates and smallholder farmers harvesting and (often experimentally) processing coffees that we aim to curate into only SCA 85+ point scoring coffees.
Freshly roasted coffee. Brew how you like it.
PROJECT SEVEN SISTERS
Project Seven Sisters is a sourcing program that aims to showcase the exceptional coffee growing potential of the Indian Northeast.
Despite the challenges posed by its remote location, the initiative seeks to highlight the unique flavors and attributes of the region's coffee, covering the states of Nagaland, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, and Assam at present.
We're honoured to be able to tell Ratnagiri Estate's story in the fullness of their legacy, with Project Pearl — a microlot program featuring 8 microlots from Ratnagiri Estate, exclusive only to Subko, that showcase the high-scoring, experimentally processed coffees that are a testament to their humble beginnings.
Coffee can be categorized into either commodity or specialty grades.
A coffee is deemed ‘specialty’ only on accrual of above 80 points on a 100 point international evaluation prescribed by the Specialty Coffee Association.
At 86+ points, a premium specialty coffee lot is obtained.
88+ points spells out an ultra-premium specialty coffee lot.
At 90+ points, a coffee lot embodies near perfection.
Hitherto, Subko has painstakingly ventured beyond the norm in roasting and brewing exclusively 85+ point cups.
With each increment in cup score attained in the miniscule of 0.25 decimal point increments, Project Sankalp is a qualitative evolution for, by, and of the subcontinent.
