Project Sankalp (88+) Lot #11: (Traditional Naturals) - Melon Candy, Green Grape, Winey [Medium, 400g]

Best Brewed With

Please note that the best brewed with list is not comprehensive and does not dictate that the coffees cannot be brewed with any other methods. These are the the methods we think will extract the best possible cup. However, this coffee can be ground and enjoyed with any brew method that you desire.

Traditional Naturals: Coffee cherries harvested at optimal maturity and ripeness are subjected to optimal drying conditions until an ideal moisture content is attained as the bean dries and develops in its own mucilage and skin. The dried cherries are then further milled and processed to extract the bean from its dried outer skin.

Cupper's Notes

We’re super excited to launch this next Project sankalp lot belonging to the 88+ point score category. This is a solid medium roast dropped into the cooling tray around 205 degrees. It bears a really rounded body with a juicy acidity reminiscent of green grapes and a sweet and sour candy like sweetness that we identify as Melon. This coffee is what we at Subko would consider an Omniroast, and would soon be serving at our spaces as a single-origin espresso. A complex, juicy coffee that is nice to enjoy on all brew methods.

About the Origin

We're honoured to roast several coffees from the Ampthill Downs region in the coming months. This harvest, our coffees from the region were grown at 1375- 1678 meters above sea level, qualifying as ‘Strictly High Grown' (‘SHG’) coffees. When coffee is grown at such exceptionally high elevations in cooler temperatures, it matures slowly, allowing more time for the bean to develop an enhanced flavour profile and body.

These coffees are also processed under ‘European Preparation’ ('EP') norms. These practices begin at the cherry harvest, continue with hand sorted removal of defective beans and foreign material without industrialized machinery, preserving local livelihoods, and continue until the beans arrive to roast at Subko.

Ampthill Downs is the name that the Pulney’s region of Tamil Nadu was given by the British. We've chosen to feature our coffees under this name to showcase the diversity of influences upon nomenclature across the subcontinent with its rich and diverse history.

Nearby Kodaikanal- the bohemian hill station of yore, where coffee is far from the only stimulant readily available- Ampthill Downs is located on the easternmost region of the Western Ghats- considered one of the world’s top biodiversity hotspots.

Frogs and butterflies, gaur-Indian bison, Malabar giant squirrels, emerald doves, and hornbills are common sights. Avocados, hill bananas, citrus fruit, passionfruit, jackfruit, guava, hibiscus, rose, and wild honey are also prevalent.
