New in the roastery we are very pleased to be able to offer this Indian Coffee ‘Ratnagiri’. The estate has been in the Patre family since 1920 following traditional farming practices whilst passing down through the generations. The son, Ashok has a keen interest in speciality coffee and has spent considerable time building up his knowledge after travelling to other origin countries and visiting well-known farms.
This coffee is some of the first ‘speciality coffee’ to come out of India and we love the idea of supporting them. We may be slightly biased having travelled in India and have a passion for the country! We hope this is the beginning of a new relationship and look forward to further coffees from this farm. By the way, Ratnagiri is the Hindi name for Pearl Mountains, which conjures up an image of beauty – so just another attractive quality to the coffee!
Maybe one day Mr Duffin will get to visit and then we can share the photos – in the meantime, there is only our boring label with the beauty inside!
Please bear with me whilst I familiarise myself with Mailchimp and endeavour to produce a ‘glossy’ newsletter!
Keep supping –
Mr Duffins Coffee
