BERKLEY, CALIF. (April 8, 2009) – Sethuraman Estate has received a 90-point score out of a possible 100 for its Sethuraman Sitara Mandarin coffee from veteran coffee reviewer Ken Davids of Coffee Review. The score is the second highest given by an Indian Robusta single origin coffee; the highest scoring coffee, with 94 points, was another produced by Sethuraman Estate.
Coffee Review founder Ken Davids describes the flavor as “Deep aroma: sweet nut, hints of orange, toast and vanilla. Smooth, buttery mouthfeel and pungent flavors of cedar, more orange and caramel, toasted grains and a hint of flowers.”
The Sitara Mandarin reviewed was roasted by Paradise Roasters of Minnesota and is available for retail sale as a member of its S.O. or single origin espresso collection.
The Sethuraman Sitara will be available for tasting by industry professionals on Friday, April 17, 2009 between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM at the Kaapi Royale Coffee SCAA hospitality suite in the Embassy Suites hotel, adjacent to the 2009 Specialty Coffee of America Exposition in Atlanta.
