    Basis TA listing, visited the shop for some Chocolate buy. The shop offers varieties of chocolates of different flavor and taste. The shop also seems to be generous in offering chocolate to the customers for testing before buy. Chocolates were priced in the range of Rs. 1200 to Rs. 2500-Rs. 3000 per kg, price-wise comparable or may be slightly higher than the other alternatives in the town. Packaging was good and suitable for carry. However, there is minimum quantity fixed for buying, which was 300 grams in most of the cases, one can buy assorted chocolate too.

    This is a shop cum cafe in the Madikeri market. You have to search for it as it is in a crowded lane. We bought coffee powders and they roasted the coffee powder in front of us. We also bought chocolates and the dark chocolates are a must buy. Everyone we gifted the dark chocolate wanted more!!They also have jaggery based chocolates. You can buy Coorg spices also. The sitting area to drink coffee is really small so it is not a linger and drink coffee but quickly drink coffee and buy the goodies

    Lovely Coorg, located in the southern part of India, is renowned for its lush coffee plantations and is often referred to as the "Coffee Capital of India." Coffee tasting in Coorg offers a delightful experience for coffee enthusiasts. Here's a review of a coffee tasting experience in Coorg with special thanks to Vaishnavi MG.

    Venue: The coffee tasting alongwith an organised session took place at a lovely store cum rich abode "Agastya Coffee Experience Centre" run jointly by Vaishnavi and Shabri estate nestled amidst the verdant hills of Coorg Hills and streets of the city. Their estate had well-maintained coffee plants and a charming ambiance that added to the overall experience as shown around by Giri (Vaishnavi better half)

    Coffee Varieties: The tasting featured various coffee varieties, including Arabica and Robusta. Both varieties are grown abundantly in Coorg due to its favorable climate and rich soil. The centre showcased their single-origin coffees, each offering unique flavors and aromas.

    Tasting Process: The coffee tasting session began with a brief introduction to the history and cultivation of coffee in Coorg. The knowledgeable host explained the different processing methods involved in creating distinct flavors. They emphasized the significance of each step in enhancing the final taste.

    Aroma and Fragrance: As the freshly brewed coffee was served, the inviting aroma filled the air. The aroma was rich, with notes of chocolate, caramel, and floral undertones. It was evident that the coffee beans had been carefully selected and roasted to perfection.

    Flavor Profiles: The tasting showcased the diversity of flavors found in Coorg coffee. The Arabica beans exhibited a smooth, well-rounded taste with a hint of acidity and fruity undertones. The Robusta beans, on the other hand, presented a stronger and bolder flavor with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

    Acidity and Body: The coffee had a balanced acidity, adding a pleasant brightness to the flavor profile. The body of the coffee was medium to full, providing a satisfying mouthfeel.

    Finish: The coffee had a lingering finish, leaving a delightful aftertaste that varied depending on the variety. Some coffees had a nutty or spicy finish, while others had a subtle sweetness that lingered pleasantly on the palate.

    Expert Guidance: The host provided insightful information about the different brewing methods, such as pour-over, French press, and espresso, and how they can affect the flavor profile. They also shared tips on storing and grinding coffee beans to maintain freshness.

    Overall Experience: The coffee tasting experience in Coorg was exceptional. From the beautiful setting to the flavorful coffees, it was evident that the estate took great pride in producing high-quality coffee. The informative session and the warm hospitality added to the overall enjoyment of the experience.

    Coorg's No1 coffee tasting session and Experience Centre "Agastya" offers a great opportunity to explore the rich coffee culture of the region. Whether you're a coffee connoisseur or simply appreciate a good cup of joe, Coorg's coffee estates are definitely worth a visit for a memorable coffee tasting experience

    Ended up stopping here on our way from the hotel to Mangalore. The moment we stopped to there a person came to usher us in, help the door open and tried to get us to buy spices, perfume, wine etc. We were quite clear on what we were looking for black jaggery (kapu Bella) local vinegar (kachampulli) local honey and haldi. We had some other stuff in our basket. When I saw the guy start to write the prices and the seemed very high, I interrupted him and started to reduce the stuff in my basket and their behavior changed immediately, to rider, why won't you take it, etc. I ended up crossing The Coorg Progressive Bee Keepers Co-op and just checking the price of the honey we bought and it was double the price. Bottom line this place is a tourist trap in a good location attempting to gouge any unsuspecting suckers who happen to walk in. I suggest you buy at the cooperatives or just and the local grocery / provision stores rather than this type of shops.
