100% Arabica, Varietal – Cauvery, Popularly known as Catimor. It is a cross between Caturra & ‘Hybrido-de-Timor’.
Caturra is a natural mutant of the famous Bourbon variety. Thus, Cauvery inherited the high yielding and superior quality attributes of Caturra and the resistance of ‘Hybrido-de-Timor’. Castle Black is an Anaerobic black honey from the renowned Ratnagiri Estate produced with all the care by Mr. & Mrs Parte in the beautiful mountain range of Chikmangalur, Karnataka. For this Lot, the ripest coffee cherries were harvested with an average Brix reading of 24.5.
