India Mysore 'Gold Nugget' Coffee 1/2 LB. Bag


Intriguing name, right? Well, it is an intriguing coffee and even has a captivating history to boot. Mysore is located in the southwest region of India. The Mysore area was mined in the late 1800's with the intent on finding coal, but they instead yielded gold in average quantities for quite sometime. The trees that are grown in that same Mysore region produce a very large bean size, hence the name, nugget.

So how did coffee get to India to begin with? Baba Budan is the man to thank for taking what was once contained to one small part of the world, and bringing it to India on the way home from his Pilgrimage to Arabia. Upon returning home, Baba Budan strapped seven fertile beans to his belly and snuck them out of the country. He arrived home, planted them and well, now here we are offering you India Mysore Gold Nugget Coffee.

These rare, Arabica beans are the highest grade India has to offer. These wet-processed beans are mildly exposed to the monsoon rain and wind, but enough so that they are plump from moisture and deliver a more smooth, unique flavor. You can expect our exotic Gold Nugget coffee to be sweet, spicy and super rich with a light body and a full aroma.

Webster's definition of Gold is, "Something valued as the finest of it's kind." We'd have to say the name is a perfect fit.
