Best Brewed With

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.


Cupper's Notes

Given this is a saccharic, anaerobic fermented washed coffee, we decided that this one is best profiled as a medium roast. We dropped it around 203°C in the cooling tray. It's got some really juicy components along with some nice malic acid with a dessert-y finish. The flavour notes for this coffee are Grapefruit, Apple Pie and Toffee

What's Project Sankalp?

According to the governing body in coffee (the SCA), garnering 80+ points deems a coffee lot as ‘specialty’. When a Q-grader assigns points to a coffee, they do so in decimal increments. At 85 points, excellence is attained. At 90 points, a chimera is realised.

Project Sankalp bridges Waribok_Daribok and Subko’s resolute manifesto to imbue a newfound vitality to coffee from the Indian subcontinent as a global specialty heavyweight, hitherto renowned only for its lore: Sankalp at 86 points; Sankalp Reserve at 88 points; Sankalp Rare at 90+ points.
