About the Process

Traditional Naturals - The coffee cherries hand-harvested at optimal maturity are subjected to optimal drying conditions until an ideal moisture content is attained as the bean dries and develops in its own mucilage and skin. The dried cherries are then further milled and processed to extract the bean from the dried outer skin and pulp.  



Cupper's Notes

Lot #GO-22 coffee features a robust texture reminiscent of jamun (Indian wild berries), complemented by a sweet, white floral full body and a finish akin to grapefruit.


 About Garo Hills Project Sankalp


The Indian Northeast basks in the limelight a lot rarer than other parts of the country. With the introduction of the Garo Hills as a specialty coffee origin in 2020, a watershed moment came to be. In 2023, with the introduction of high-scoring specialty coffee from the Garo Hills under the umbrella of Project Sankalp, or ‘Garo Sankalp’, processor Waribok Daribok has elevated the coffee grown there by tribal smallholders — popularly referred to as the ‘Achik’ in collective — to a specialty caliber worthy of international recognition.





About The Origin


About the estate Indigenous, native citizens of Meghalaya, in India's Northeast, the Garos refer to themselves as 'A'Chik'. Classified as a 'Sino-Tibetan' language, 'Garo' is spoken in the Garo Hills districts of Meghalaya. Garos are interestingly also one of the few matrilineal societies globally, where clan titles are traditionally taken from the mothers' side.

Garo gastronomic culture is equally diverse. Millet, maize, tapioca, goats, pigs, fowls, ducks, deer, raw honey, and bamboo shots to name but a few gastronomic drivers of the region. Arabica coffee, however, is rarely on such lists.

We're humbled to share that there is small-lot production of Arabica coffee production in Meghalaya, thanks to the tireless work of native Meghalayan Waribok_Daribok. Our Q-Grader has found that these coffees cup well beyond the threshold for specialty coffee, with certain roast profiles surpassing the SCA 85-point level we aim for with our specialty sourcing model.

Cultivated at elevations of 850-965 Mtrs MASL by smallholder farmers and not at any formalised estate, these specialty coffee cherries were grown, harvested, picked and then naturally shade dried below 35 Centigrade with intermittent raking on what are referred to as 'African raised beds.'
