Coorg and Crazy Beans Company

Hello Folks! Sorry for being absconding for this long, got caught up in the hustle of life 😛 Anyways, here is a fresh one and I believe its perfect to make up for the “disappearance”.

The end of 2017 was a crazy one, exhausting honestly. So to rejuvenate I planned a trip to  Coorg, I have heard so many good things about the place I had to see it by myself.

Coorg is synonym to coffee and being a coffee lover I wanted to explore. Luckily enough I had a chance to meet Mr. Bharath who runs a coffee plantation there. He is certified by coffee board of India as a Roaster and Barista and also we are members of SCAA. A very passionate man who treats coffee as his treasure.

As I went around with him exploring the coffee estates I witnessed how much love, passion and hard work goes into our early morning cuppa.

To make the best coffee available to all of us as fresh as it can get Bharath has started an online portal http://www.crazybeancompany.com/ where Natural processed coffee is available. The best part of it all is that the order can be custom roasted and grounded as per your requirement. I had to share the details afterall we all deserve our good blissful cup of coffee.

In his words –

Farmers by birth, roasters by choice and business people by accident. We love our food and drink and we enjoy making it for others as well. There’s an old saying- “if you’re good at something don’t do it for free” so we started The Crazy Bean Company.

img-20161025-wa0011We can tell you that our farm in the heartland of Kodagu is irrigated by a freshwater spring, fertilised by wild animals and birds, the fruits are serenaded by classical music and caressed of their stems on maturity. Well, the classical music part isn’t true everything else is. We also follow modern, scientific and sustainable methods of farming, which means absolutely no pesticides.“

 

So here you go guys! Hope I am helping out some of my travellers & coffee loving friends 🙂

Cheers!

Starbucks Summer Adventure

Summers! I used to like summers but as the years are passing by its not so much of my favorite anymore. Though I still can’t deny the few perks that it brings along and mangoes tops my list. Precise reason why I was excited to be a part of the Starbucks  summer adventure and took the #sipface challenge.

Alphonso Mango Frappuccino

A rich blend of Alphonso mango and milk with ice and dollops of whipped cream. You can personalize this beverage by adding Java Chip to bring out the best. Special blend to suit the Indian taste pallet, this is perfect for the summer season, not too sweet, not overdosed on the flavor, just perfect craftsmanship.

Baked Mango Yogurt

Ah! I can’t talk enough about it. What beautiful flavors. A rich blend of Mango puree, yogurt and cream. Truth is, by the look of it I anticipated it to be too sweet for my taste but I was wrong, and how. This is nothing less than heavenly. So fresh and delicious I scrapped the bottom of the cup for more.
