Indian Parchment Kaapi Royale is an exemption to our typical policy of only carrying Arabica beans - this is a Robusta! Robusta coffee beans are typically used in an espresso blend as they typically retain more flavours when mixed with dairy (eg. lattes cappuccinos) and tend to have a more pronounced crema.
This Kaapi Royale has a very pronounced woodsy aroma with a noticeable woodsy flavour to accompany it with a very unique slightly rubbery aftertaste. Despite these pronounced flavours it is overall mellow smooth and full bodied.
Robusta coffees are known for producing better crema than Arabica coffees in an espresso machine. They also contain roughly twice the caffeine as Arabica coffee beans.
The Kaapi Royale beans are sorted for a 17-screen with no peaberries broken beans or foreign matter allowed. It comes from the Mysore Coorg Malabar Wayanad Shevaroys Pulneys and Bababudan regions.
Robusta beans are especially popular in LavAzza and Nespresso products due to the higher caffeine content thicker crema production and lower cost.
