Move over single origin coffees, it’s the time to brew blends of your favorite morning beverage. Under the brand name SUNBEAN GOURMET COFFEE, ITC's Branded Packaged Foods business is bringing to our breakfast table two very rich, slow roasted and meticulously blended coffee fusions with the crème de la crème of Indian and Central American coffee beans.
These are NICAMALAI & PANAGIRI and these two coffee bean formulations have been arrived at after having tried more than thirty-five flavor combinations and clearing twenty-one quality checks of different coffee beans from the aforementioned geographical regions.
At the #SunbeanArtOfCoffee meet recently, Christopher from the Sunbean Gourmet Coffee product development team walked us through the creation of NICAMALAI and PANAGIRI blends and their flavor construct:
After understanding the bean to cup journey of Sunbean gourmet coffee, it was time to get a little creative and engage in latte art demonstrated by Barista Ashwath Ram. He gave novices like me a few tips on going about it in our homes and also created lip-smacking classic coffee preparations like cappuccino, Americano, Café Mocha and his signature creation with Panagiri blend, the cinnamon coffee shots.
For those seeking to buy Sunbean Gourmet Coffee blends can currently do so from coffee shops at select ITC Hotels in your city.
So, do try out this premium coffee and let me know of your experience.
Till then, HAPPY BREWING…
