The Robusta is a natural and sun-dried cherry that comes from the Agasteshwara Temple Estate in Guyya, Kodagu. No chemical pesticides have been used but there is use of 1.6 kilos of NPK fertiliser per coffee plant.

Tasting Notes

AUB: Look its filter coffee and all. Don’t drink it black.

KM: It’s actually kinda sweet and friendly like a school-going boy

SK: I’ve been drinking filter coffee since I was like FOUR and this is darn good! It brings back memories of my family screaming over each other over the crossword at the breakfast table.

The inspiration

The Malabar Whistling Thrush is locally known by the name of the whistling schoolboy because the whistling calls these birds make at dawn sound surprisingly human-like. They may sing long, elaborate songs at dawn but during the rest of the day, they utter sharp single or two-note whistles. They also take frequent water baths.
