Cuppers Notes

This Kerehaklu Natural process coffee is affectionately referred to by producers Pranoy and Ajoy Thipaiah as 'Lot Rani' has gone through a 21 hour fermentation process at an altitude of over 1145 MASL. After extensive sampling from the estate across natural and honey coffees, we carefully profiled this natural process microlot to arrive at a truly distinct toasted coconut base topped by a creme fraiche or clotted cream mouthfeel and a notably pleasant strawberry sweet acidity.

About the estate

Kerehaklu Estate is a sustainable, biodiversity-friendly farm in Chikmagalur, Karnataka, India. Specialty coffee is grown alongside several varieties of pepper, avocados, citrus and mulberries - all in harmony with the local flora and fauna.

Kerehaklu has been run by the Thipaiah family since 1953 and is now overseen by Pranoy Thipaiah, who is the fifth generation to do so. The farm has gone chemical-free in late 2016 and are thus experiencing a gradual influx of birds and small mammals from the neighbouring Bhadra State forest.
