Indian coffee

Indian coffe
The aroma is intense since it starts to get out of moka. The taste is full-bodied, after drinking remains a aftertaste sweet  and bitter at the same time. Delicious. It is my precious Indian coffee that I bought this summer, but that is - unfortunately - to finish. I bought it in a quaint little shop in Thiruvananthapuram, the former Trivandrum, capital of Kerala. It is located in M.G. Road. It is called Sanker's Coffee & Tea.

At the shop you can choose the mix that you prefer and the quantity desired. The manager is very helpful and explains the nature, origins and provenance of each product. It can do grind live or take it home in grains.
The one I bought last time originates in Wayanad, one of the districts of Kerala, the south-western State of India. It is a beautiful place, located on the mountain range of the Western Ghats and dominated by a lush tropical forest.
The name comes from the words Vayal, which means rice, and Nadu which means place, land. That is the land of rice, but not only, also tea, pepper, ginger and, of course, coffee. If you're in the area, make a detour because it deserves it.

Now I leave because my coffee is ready.
