“We've been a big fan of Indian coffees since we started roasting,” explained Steve Mangigian, managing partner and roast master at Zingerman’s Coffee Company. “They’re often complex with really interesting notes of spice.”
Steve found these beans from a co-op in the Mysore region. It has a wonderfully rich body, hints of sweet and warming spices (think cardamom) and a long, clean finish. Steve likes it a touch on the light side, when it comes to the roast—it lets the complex and subtle nuances come through when brewed.
It’s great brewed up in a press pot. I’ve even taken to letting it cool down a bit and sipping it long into the morning. The sweetness comes out, and the clean mouth feel doesn’t leave your tongue with a bitter aftertaste. Great in the morning or late in the afternoon.
The term "nugget" comes from the gold mining that took place in this region and put it on the map.
