We’ve been working with the Salawara Estate since we started roasting coffee, and we have seen how their coffee has gotten better year after year. Sharan, over the last four years, has adopted the most modern farming and processing techniques that have produced incredibly complex and delicious coffees that we’ve been enjoying. Apart from doing experimental processes and fermentation techniques, Sharan has also been able to take more traditional processes and improve their quality immensely.

For this year, apart from the washed arabica that we buy, we were amazed at the quality of the Honey Processes arabicas that we got from them. Both the Red and the Yellow Honey were exceptional coffees, but we chose to get the Yellow Honey since we found it to be a brighter cup. This yellow honey comes from the S795 plants grown at Salawara and was fermented aerobically before being pulped and sun-dried for 20 days.

This controlled fermentation and slow drying has created a coffee with immense sweetness which has allowed us again, to roast light like we like to, and create a super bright coffee with notes of Amla, Kinnows, and the sweetness of Jaggery. The lingering tangy sweetness is a real hallmark of this coffee. We enjoy the bright acidity in this coffee, and it comes through best as a pour-over or an AeroPress.
