Wayanad Special Coffee Powder.

The coffee has a crisp, bright flavor, with subtle hints of citrus and rich chocolates. High-quality coffee should balance acidity, sweetness, and bitterness in one sip, with a smooth flavor, and no off-notes. That's a complex way to say that that good quality coffee should taste good. It shouldn't taste burnt, charred, or raw. It should have complex and nuanced flavors. Wayanad in north Kerala grows around 50,000 to 60,000 tonnes of robusta coffee annually, making it the prominent region in the country cultivating the variety.The coffee production in Kerala is around 23 % of the country’s total coffee output which makes it the second largest coffee-producing state in India. Wayanad, in Kerala produces almost around 90 % of the state’s coffee produce which literally concludes that the coffee economy of Kerala is highly correlated with the coffee economy existing in Wayanad. Wayanad being distant from the mean sea level and densely covered by forests provide a very pleasant climate. T
