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 is height above mean sea level
- Acidity is flavour
- After taste is primarily determined by the inter crops grown along with coffee
- Aroma is smell
- Body is the thickness of the brewed decoction
High elevation produces more acidity which produces good flavour. Low elevation produces more body.
Cauvery Peak due to its ideal elevation at 4600ft has good flavour and body making it a Well Balanced Cup!
