    The Mysore is a great coffee, an even roaster and often well graded.

    There are a few good Indian samples doing the rounds at the moment but Im not sure which side of Christmas they will land.

    Re: Indian Mysore

    A pretty good chance Steve but we better be quick, 26000 tonnes of beans were drowned this in this years crop which will have to have an impact somewhere most likely to people like ourselves as the big international players have contracts for volume... they get theirs first.
    :(

    India lowers coffee production
    (Bloomberg)
    18 December 2007

    MUMBAI — Coffee output in India, Asia’s third-biggest exporter, may fall 10 per cent this year from a July estimate because of damage from heavy rainfall and pests, likely bolstering global prices.


    Production may reach 262,000 metric tonnes in the year ending September 2008, lower than the 291,000 tonnes forecast in July by the government, the state-run Coffee Board said yesterday on its web site. The crop totaled 288,000 tonnes in the previous year.

    The forecast for a smaller crop comes at a time when the International Coffee Organisation expects this year’s global demand to exceed last month’s forecast. Lower output may cut exports from India, helping to support prices of robusta beans which have risen 17 per cent in London since January.

    Robusta for March delivery, the most active contract, rose as much as 0.7 per cent to $1,872 a metric tonne on London’s Liffe exchange. It traded $4, or 0.2 per cent higher at $1,864 a tonne at 3:41pm Mumbai time.

    Some plantations in Hassan and Chikmagalur areas in the southern Karnataka state, the nation’s biggest coffee-growing region, got as much as 20 inches of rain in July, 35 per cent above average for the month. The state may gather 191,575 tonnes, less than the 212,250 estimated in July, the board said.

    India’s coffee output will comprise 169,500 tonnes of robusta beans and 92,500 tonnes of the arabica variety, the board said. That’s less than the 190,250 tonnes robusta production estimated in July. Robusta usually make up 70 per cent of the total harvest.

    ‘Uncompetitive’: A fall in output may cause exports to decline more than 18 per cent in 2008, Ramesh Rajah, president of the Coffee Exporters Association of India, said in a phone interview from Bangalore yesterday. Overseas sales may total 180,000 tonnes, compared with an estimated 220,000 tonnes this year, he said.

    The Indian rupee has gained 12.5 against the dollar this year, making Indian robusta coffee $50 a tonne more expensive than from suppliers in Vietnam and Indonesia, Rajah said.

    “Exports this year is down already because of the gain in rupee and a lower output will compound our problems,” he said. “Domestic prices will rise further on the forecast of a smaller crop, making export rates uncompetitive.”

    India ships more than two-thirds of its output to countries including Italy and Russia. Nestle India Limited, Tata Coffee Limited, Allana Sons Limited and General Commodities Pvt. were the biggest exporters this year. The nation exported 214,413 tonnes in the January 1-December 13 period, according to provisional data from the board.

    I was in the same boat Cindy. I bought beans from Mark Barun which helped for one week but last weekend I braved the heat and 2 lots of 350gms.

    Re: Indian Mysore

    This is definitely one bean I would buy again if given the chance!

    Cant get over the darkness and duration of the crema and the way this coffee cuts though milk. *I was away over the Easter break holidaying with a couple of other families and they all marveled at the richness and aroma of the coffee offered by this bean (that said, they also marveled that I managed to pack the Mazzer and the Mondiale with all of our other holiday gear and got it to fit in the car as well *:))

    I think the Mysore Nuggets have knocked the Malabar of my "No 1 favourite coffee" perch *;)

    -Alchemist-

    Definitely got an Indian thing happening at the moment!

    Re: Indian Mysore

    I have some Indian Mysore resting atm and they are now 7days post roast :o , which is darn good for me to have anything rested longer than a few days. I havent even tried them yet because Ive been too busy this past week savouring Dens Gambella Naturals and Defibrillator Espresso Blend oooh laaa laaahh..yuuuum or what?!! Im a bit worried now that I may have been spoiled thoroughly knowing that my own roasts will never come up to par *snif* .

    In desperation prior to receiving Dens T-Shirt comp prize which included the roasts above,.. I did three batches of Indian Mysore in the popper *punches self in the jaw*. *Butttt,.. I was pleasantly surprised that these nuggets (and they are huuuuuge) took ages to roast in the popper. I actually thought that the popper had died on me because FC was at 3:30 and SC at 9:30 :o.. usually its all over red rover after 5 or 6mins tops. *The roasts were very even and I just sniffed in the bag and there is no smell of carbon whoot!..just chocolatey??

    I love these big beans,.I love the way they roasted up in the popper(I know I said Id never use the popper again,.but tis what happens when one is desperate),.they are really nice looking beans,..and I hope they impresses me just as much in the cup because they might make my top list too if they do.

    Re: Indian Mysore

    Hi Remy,

    Did a batch of nuggets last Saturday in the Corretto.

    12 minutes to FC and 16:20 minutes to SC, pulled just on SC

    First brew after 60 hours , these really are terrific as an espresso.....thick and creamy pour, great body and very fruity taste and aroma,
    slight acidity.

    Also cuts through milk for great Capp or latte

    All in all these go to near the top of my preferred list.

    Cheers Gazz 8-)

    Behmor Brazen - $249 - Free Freight
    Hey there Gazz,...12 minutes to FC and 16:20 minutes to SC, pulled just on SC sounds perfect. Ill get there one day I hope,.. just gotta find the time to get my BBQ roaster modifications finished... but even then,.. Im not convinced that the BBQ roaster is really going to give me the results I want,..and I might end up going down the corretto road too eventually.

    Your brew sounds really nice too, and now Im very curious about mine,.. will have to try it in the morning me thinks.
