raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption


Sourced from the southwestern Chikmagalur district––the coffee capital of India––the Mysore bean produces rich flavor and a decadent finish, which is the standard for more than 70% of coffees produced near Karnataka. However, the India Mysore is washed unlike its monsooned relatives––the Mysore is simply de-pulped and dried with very little fermentation.

Cupping Notes: Bakers chocolate, graham cracker, and nutmeg.

This coffee is one of the sweetest I've roasted. It has a dense mouthfeel and develops a roasty overtone like mild cloves when taken just into second crack. LIke the 2013 review, "hot cocoa" is a good description of the lingering aftertaste. It's very smooth with low acidity when brewed at 175°F, and it doesn't have the overpowering funky, earthy top end of some Sumatras that need to be compensated by taking them further into second crack. Similar coffees have more distillates than this one. It will delight my friends who favor dark roasts and will be surprised it can be this smooth, mellow and flavorful all at the same time.

Our winter time go-to coffee, just at or into 2nd crack. Lots of spice tones underneath a great full-body coffee taste. Does well in my 1500w original Poppery.

The very first impressions of the @coffeebeancorral Mysore (mee-zore) is that the cup is a very transitional cup. At first the flavor immediately reminds me of a Monsoon Malabar. Once I’ve had a few sips my palate settles down. The flavors made me think this was a blend of the best Ethiopian Natty and a malabar. There is a fruitiness bordering on juicy that mixes well but stands alone with the earthy Malabar flavors. As the cup cools a spiciness becomes apparent. The earthiness is still prevalent but a sweetness is also reminiscent of a great PNG. After only performing one roast on my popper and having one cup of this coffee I would absolutely recommend you purchase this coffee. That said, if you have not had a Monsooned Malabar yet order this along with the Mysore. I would highly recommend that you roast and drink the Malabar first. Go through at-least a half pound and then try the Mysore. I have just enough roasted to have one more cup tomorrow morning. This review will be continued. My brew was 465g(tap water)/30g/Chemex. Baratza Encore on 28.

This is my favorite blender. Provides a delightfully rich and smooth base for any espresso blend. I blend it with a brasil, or a guatemalan, or even a harrar. I have been using this for several years. I roast to just the first ticks of second crack. Never fails to impress. And, excuse me, but i prefer to call it my sore nuggets. Proper pronunciation be damned.

This coffee tastes like Autumn. Hot cocoa, nuts, baking spice, sweet, with silky smooth body and a loooong creamy finish. Roasted to Full City+ just beginning a few snaps of second crack.

"WOW!" That was the very first thing my brain yelled when I first tasted the Mysore Nugget. The flavor is very deep and rich. Extra Bold is a good description. I roasted it to Full-City, I ground the beans very fine (Turkish style), and I used 2 ounces of ground for a 12 cup pot. The coffee this produced was a full bodied and flavored brew that is comparable to any of the large chains' brews. This cup was begging to be drank! I am very pleased with this coffee and I am looking forward to sharing it with guests.

Roasted start of 2nd crack. The beans swell larger than most. As a drip coffee has a bold earthy aroma. Serves a good base coffee for milk, creamer or flavors. In Southern India often brewed with chicory.

This is a great coffee. Roasted to light medium. Mineral, grassy, nice body, rich chocolate. toffee, caramel, some vegetal. some slight acidity, maybe fruits. milk and sugar brings out some nice creaminess, but lose acidity.

This coffee is my favorite so from from CBC, and I've tried about eight different kinds, including Jamaican Blue, which was almost too mild. This India coffee though is not earthy (dried grass smell/taste), and is bright, nutty, with no heavy aftertaste or thick body that clings to the teeth. Buy more than a 1 pound bag if you buy.

This is are go to coffee. We drink it daily. When we go out to breakfast the wife can't stand the taste of very few of the offerings. I have had to stop her from bringing in our travel cups. We have tried many different beans and this is the one we always come back to. Roast to just the start of the second crack for best flavor. Additionally an Indian workmate states the correct pronunciation is My Sore.

I've been roasting for about two years so I'm no expert but this is a nice coffee. Not my favorite, that would be Costa Rican La Magnolia Tres Rios, but really good. I roast everything to "just into second crack". Maybe 20 - 30 seconds on a Behmor 1600. If you are a novice coffee roaster, get this coffee! Why? Glad you asked. Sometimes identifying cracks can be difficult but Indian Mysore leaves no doubt. Both first and second are very easy to hear. Enjoy the cup and keep roasting.

This India coffee may just be my favorite coffee I have ever ordered from CBC. I roast it in an air popper half way between 1st & 2nd crack. The aftertaste is where it's at with this coffee.

My wife and I like our coffee strong and hearty. I usually roast into the second crack. I can't say anything bad about this one but also can not say it is my favorite so far. Good full body coffee.

Light roasted, great everyday coffee. I prefer nutty tones and this coffee hits the mark.

If you want an absolutely scrumptious cup of coffee with an equally scrumptious aroma buy this coffee, roast it dark x 2 and age it a bit. It’s the best cup of coffee we’ve had.

Roasted just into the first few cracks of second crack. Smooth, with notes of chocolate and spices. Really enjoyed trying this one out.

This has been my go-to coffee. Rich, smooth, not bitter. I roast to second crack when the oils just barely started to appear, then cool. The oils will exude over time, but frankly we consume within two or three days. If CBC is out, I wait for their next shipment; it’s not worth it to change.

When I think of India, I think of tea, exotic spices and vibrant colors. Now I'll add coffee! This coffee is bold and full of flavor. A great way to start the day or a midday boost. So many wonderful flavors in one cup. Delicious!
