"The coffee of Poabs Organic Estates is grown bio-dynamically, with care being paid to the environment, to the work culture and above all to the quality in the cup. The robustas from this estate, when washed, have a Strong body, are Neutral, Clean and possess a Fair Smoothness, with a tint of bitterness, enabling the beans to be even brewed as a ‘neat’ drink. The farm is a delight to the eye and the cup a stimulant to the palate!" says Ms Sunalini N. Menon, an internationally renowned coffee taster and CEO of Coffeelab Pvt. Ltd. based in Bangalore, India.
