The first espresso roast in the Showcase series is finally here! And it also turns out to be the first honey. Dates & Raisins is an effort at creating a sweet and viscous espresso that boasts of enough balance to ensure high performance in milk-based beverages too. The cherries were tenderly handpicked at an optimal brix level of 23 in the sprawling grounds of Baarbara Estate at altitudes ranging from 1170 to 1600 meters above sea level. They underwent stringent sorting to guarantee that only the ripest, most exquisite fruits made the cut. To maintain the coffee’s purity, pristine stream water was used to wash the cherries, washing away any impurities. This meticulous cleansing process guaranteed a clean slate for the next stages of production.

Following this, the cherries began their transformative journey. Carefully placed in fermentation tanks for precisely 48 hours, they underwent partial pulping without water, setting the stage for further flavour development in the drying process. The cherries were rested on elevated beds with a considerable amount of mucilage left on to create potential for their distinctive sweetness and character. Over the course of 22 days, shaded drying ensured the cherries were gently dehydrated, preserving their nuanced flavours and aromas.

The result? A coffee of unparalleled quality that beckons to espresso enthusiasts. With its remarkable density and sweetness, “Dates & Raisins” is tailor-made for espresso aficionados seeking a refined and captivating experience. Displaying a captivating malic acidity reminiscent of crisp green apples, this coffee boasts a rich and creamy body that’s perfectly suited for a range of espresso experiments and all milk-based beverages.

Dive into the cup and uncover the delightful symphony of flavours. Notes of dried dates and raisins greet your palate, followed by subtle hints of stone fruit that add depth and intrigue. The journey culminates in a tangy, grapy finish that lingers, inviting you to savour each sip.

Whether you’re a seasoned espresso enthusiast or a curious newcomer to the world of specialty coffee, this lot promises an unforgettable and indulgent experience.

“Our fundamental goal is simple – help grow your business by supplying you with great coffee.
But here’s a few other things we do to go the extra mile and make sure we’ve got you covered.”

Understand the Needs of Your Business

We begin our business relationship with you by understanding your goals and expectations and the vision you have for your business. Whether you are a seasoned veteran in the industry or an experimenting entrepreneur with an interest in coffee, we focus our efforts on first exploring what you would like to achieve so we can streamline your ideas into an integrated vision that helps us understand the best way to generate value for your business.

We take long-term business relationships very seriously since they form the skeletal frameworks for the growth models of our clients as well as our own.

Identify the Best Products For You

Our portfolio is expansive and we continue to add new coffees every year. The flavor profiles of our coffees are as diverse as the regions from which we source them. The typical coffee drinker is one who can differentiate between the slightest of subtleties and it is key for businesses to heed to the ever-evolving demands of the consumer’s palette. We will identify the best coffees in our portfolio that match the flavor profiles you are interested in so we can offer your customers a delightful product.

We have promised ourselves to be as constraint-averse as possible. So, even if your needs go beyond roasted beans/roast & ground coffee into the realm of drip bags, dip bags, nutrition mixes, etc., we will find the ideal coffees that fit with these customizations. The objective is not to impose our ideas on our clients but to design solutions to execute their ideas.

Customize Products to Suit Your Needs

The customization of your products will be spread across three dimensions – roasting, grinding and marketing support. This will ensure that they are differentiated and well-positioned in the market. We employ an artisanal approach to roasting which combines scientific information with artistic ability to bring the best out of the beans we source.

We first collect information from our partner farms/processors about the growing and processing techniques used to produce the beans we source. We then study the physical characteristics of the bean such as moisture, color, shape and density. Before sourcing each lot, we run a series of experiments in our lab to understand how various roasting patterns create different interactions of heat with the beans to produce different flavor profiles. Once we identify a profile that yields extraordinary results, our decision to source the coffee is finalized. This in-depth understanding of each of the lots that we source enables us to provide our clients with highly customized products – whether the coffees are single estate, single origin or blends.

In addition to customized roasting, we offer customized grinding solutions to clients who do not possess grinding equipment. We also provide our clients with product stories, packaging design ideas and any other related information that can assist them with marketing. All our partners are given access to complete traceability information and documentation when applicable to the products they source.

Design a Tailored Supply Plan

Coffee is an annual crop and due to the high demand for specialty coffee, most roasters complete their sourcing activities for the year 2 – 3 months after the harvest period. Due to this reason, specialized lots of coffee are available only in limited quantities. But to ensure that you never run out of coffee, we can design tailored supply plans for each of your products to meet demand throughout the year.

Whether you require small specialized batches of 5kg a month or have a much larger commercial requirement, we can plan ahead to ensure your coffees always reach you on time and your customers are never left wanting.

Coffee Beans for Roasters

Our sister firm deals with an annual export of 10,000 – 15,000 metric tons of coffee in a year. This expansive trading network has given us the ability to source a large variety of high-quality coffees from all growing regions in India and around the world. We extend this sourcing network to roasters of all sizes and maintain very small minimum order quantities to ensure our clients are given the opportunity to experiment roasting with different coffees. As your sourcing partner, we will enable you to source volumes that are aligned with your expected demand. Our access to numerous coffee markets combined with our small MOQs will let you experiment with your product mix and switch between products whenever you deem necessary.
