Besides a website, Heritage Blend, aA� Coorg coffee brand, promises an interactive experience at Maalgaadi
JOINING the list of freshly-brewed coffee choices in the city like Narasua��s, Flying Squirrel,Blue Tokai, ID and Kumbakonam Degree, the new Heritage Blend brand comes all the way from Coorg. It boasts fruit and spice undertones and an eco-friendly tag. For Aishwarya Srikkanth, coffee is a necessary luxury. a�?a�?To me it is more than just a hot beverage; it is an experience. This ritualistic experience is only possible if one has access to the most superior blend of coffee beans,a��a�� elaborates the 29-year-old owner of the brand.
Heritage Blend coffee is from Srikkantha��s family owned sprawling estates in Coorg. a�?a�?Our family has been in the cultivation and export of coffee for over 150 years. It began with my great grandfather working alongside the British in Chikkamangalur plantations. With a family history that makes me immensely proud, crafting Heritage Blend was a natural progression,a��a�� says Srikkanth, adding that the e-store is up. Offering a curated blend of three types of whole beans a�� Robusta, Arabica and Peaberry a�� the coffee from this brew is best described as strong, exceptionally rich, full bodied and deep in colour and aroma. a�?a�?What makes it enjoyable further is the subtle tones of jackfruit, cardamom and pepper, whose trees provide the vital shade to the estate plantations,a��a�� shares Srikkanth. There is no chicory in these offerings. a�?a�?We are a UTZ certified brand, which is issued as a label to companies practising sustainable farming,a��a�� says Srikkanth. To be launched on January 30, in association with Maalgaadi at Besant Nagar, Heritage Blend will share the stage alongside eco-friendly fashion brands a�� Arture and Naushad Ali. Expect an interactive session, a coffee-tasting affair and DYI coffee kits.
