Have you heard the legend of Baba Budan? In 1670 he smuggled 7 beans back to India - first coffee planted outside its native African origin. Ristretto Origin India is our spirited homage to the fine Arabica and Robusta he planted. Powerful and spicy - its aromatic intensity hits your palate with a noble punch worthy of its history. The coffees are hand-harvested and carefully selected from one single state in southern India - Karnataka. We light roast the Arabica coffees for a long time to keep those subtle aromatics intact. The Robusta gets a long, dark roast to bring out the punchy cocoa and spice notes. Exotic spice notes and a rich roastiness come through in Ristretto Origin India with milk.
