Specialty coffee is the highest grade of single origin and single estate coffee. It is defined by elevation, acidity and after taste followed by aroma and body.
- Elevation – height above mean sea level
- Acidity – flavour
- After taste is primarily determined by the inter crops and soil.
- Aroma – smell
- Body – thickness of the brewed decoction
High elevation produces more acidity, which produces good flavour. Low elevation produces more body, which is good decoction.
Cauvery Peak due to its ideal elevation at 4600ft has good flavour and body making it a “Well Balanced Cup”!
