ROYAL INDIAN PREMIUM (MNEB) | $5/lb
These washed Arabica beans follow all the prescriptions for Plantation A coffees, but with tighter grading and sorting requirements. The beans are extra-bold, 90 percent larger than 7.5 millimeters (19 screen) in size, and 100 percent larger than 6.65 millimeters (17 screen). The grade doesn’t permit any peaberries, bits, blacks, or extraneous matter. Moisture content is 9 to 10.5 percent.
Our Royal Indian Premium is represents the “best of the best” washed Arabica coffees from India. The beans are large and uniform, bluish-green in color, and have a clean, well-polished appearance. They provide a highly uniform roast.
This coffee is grown at about 4,200 feet (1280 MASL) of elevation in the Baba Budan region of Chikmagalur. Coffees grown in this region exhibit slightly more acidity and spiciness in the cup. This particular coffee yields a brew that is smooth and buttery with a mocha overtone. They also perform well in espresso blends.

This selection was developed using ‘Kents’ Arabica, known for its high quality. Even today, the S.795 is a favourite with the planters and is a widely cultivated Arabica variety. S.795 has a balanced cup with subtle flavour notes of Mocca.
