Sourced from the southwestern Chikmagalur district––the coffee capital of India––the Mysore bean produces rich flavor and a decadent finish, which is the standard for more than 70% of coffees produced near Karnataka. However, the India Mysore is washed unlike its monsooned relatives––the Mysore is simply de-pulped and dried with very little fermentation.

Cupping Notes: Bakers chocolate, graham cracker, and nutmeg.

Delicious and unique! Going to put this on my list to buy in early November next year to make as my Holiday roast. Naturally subtle sweet spice (i.e. Cinnamon and Nutmeg) notes makes it a perfect Winter evening Coffee

My new favorite! Love this cup of coffee. Not acidic, good smooth sweet cup. Fantastic hot and even still good as the cup cools! Roasted to about a city to city plus roast. This will be my new go to since I can’t afford Kona (which is my all time favorite).

Not for those who prefer more floral coffees, but is very lovely. I find it perfect for fall, a very cozy taste and feeling. Roasted medium is what I would recommend, city+ to full city. Not as strong spice as I anticipated, but that could easily be a product of roasting, roasting darker or to the start of the second crack seems to be best for stronger notes of spice.

Very nutty earthy bean at any roast with a high caffeine jitter brew was medium dark and not very robust again at any roast not a repeat but it was ok to try.

I thought I was roasting a Yirgachefe bean. Medium roast. After two days brewed a cup. WTH? Not good at all. Then I discovered, that bag was Mysore Nuggets. Well, I figured, should have roasted longer. Maybe could stir it in a frying pan? I didn't, I ignored it for two weeks. When I tried it today and I found it was very good. The pay-off of procrastination!

I am genuinely surprised by this unique bean. 4/5 stars for me. A real surprise. Easy roast, no negative sirorises. I've finished to 405F all the way up to 445f, and all have had there own unique positive qualities. Can't beat the price either.

I have been roasting for about 2years so still a novice. A couple of months ago I tried a sample bag of Mysore Nuggets mainly because of the name. What I found out is that this is a great been. I roast it right up to 2nd crack. Try this bean if you like unique tasting beans.

This is a perennial favorite and the current crop maintains the standard. At a medium roast it's full-bodied and the combination of acidity and sweetness is balanced and suggests vanilla. Other flavors notes are cloves and a hint of cedar. The The long finish is cedar. Keith described this as a mellow, rich coffee, and I agree. It will also hold up well in milk, and I look forward to trying it as espresso or an espresso component combined with a Brazil and maybe something fruity or floral.

Before I began roasting I bought these roasted from a California roaster. I have been fortunate to reproduce the same mellow rich flavor with my roaster. A great low acid cup with wonderful drinkability.

Roasted start of 2nd crack. The beans swell larger than most. As a drip coffee has a bold earthy aroma. Serves a good base coffee for milk, creamer or flavors. In Southern India often brewed with chicory.

I've been roasting for about two years so I'm no expert but this is a nice coffee. Not my favorite, that would be Costa Rican La Magnolia Tres Rios, but really good. I roast everything to "just into second crack". Maybe 20 - 30 seconds on a Behmor 1600. If you are a novice coffee roaster, get this coffee! Why? Glad you asked. Sometimes identifying cracks can be difficult but Indian Mysore leaves no doubt. Both first and second are very easy to hear. Enjoy the cup and keep roasting.

This India coffee may just be my favorite coffee I have ever ordered from CBC. I roast it in an air popper half way between 1st & 2nd crack. The aftertaste is where it's at with this coffee.

My wife and I like our coffee strong and hearty. I usually roast into the second crack. I can't say anything bad about this one but also can not say it is my favorite so far. Good full body coffee.

Light roasted, great everyday coffee. I prefer nutty tones and this coffee hits the mark.

Our winter time go-to coffee, just at or into 2nd crack. Lots of spice tones underneath a great full-body coffee taste. Does well in my 1500w original Poppery.

If you want an absolutely scrumptious cup of coffee with an equally scrumptious aroma buy this coffee, roast it dark x 2 and age it a bit. It’s the best cup of coffee we’ve had.

This is a great coffee. Roasted to light medium. Mineral, grassy, nice body, rich chocolate. toffee, caramel, some vegetal. some slight acidity, maybe fruits. milk and sugar brings out some nice creaminess, but lose acidity.

Roasted just into the first few cracks of second crack. Smooth, with notes of chocolate and spices. Really enjoyed trying this one out.

This has been my go-to coffee. Rich, smooth, not bitter. I roast to second crack when the oils just barely started to appear, then cool. The oils will exude over time, but frankly we consume within two or three days. If CBC is out, I wait for their next shipment; it’s not worth it to change.

This coffee is my favorite so from from CBC, and I've tried about eight different kinds, including Jamaican Blue, which was almost too mild. This India coffee though is not earthy (dried grass smell/taste), and is bright, nutty, with no heavy aftertaste or thick body that clings to the teeth. Buy more than a 1 pound bag if you buy.

This is are go to coffee. We drink it daily. When we go out to breakfast the wife can't stand the taste of very few of the offerings. I have had to stop her from bringing in our travel cups. We have tried many different beans and this is the one we always come back to. Roast to just the start of the second crack for best flavor. Additionally an Indian workmate states the correct pronunciation is My Sore.

When I think of India, I think of tea, exotic spices and vibrant colors. Now I'll add coffee! This coffee is bold and full of flavor. A great way to start the day or a midday boost. So many wonderful flavors in one cup. Delicious!

The very first impressions of the @coffeebeancorral Mysore (mee-zore) is that the cup is a very transitional cup. At first the flavor immediately reminds me of a Monsoon Malabar. Once I’ve had a few sips my palate settles down. The flavors made me think this was a blend of the best Ethiopian Natty and a malabar. There is a fruitiness bordering on juicy that mixes well but stands alone with the earthy Malabar flavors. As the cup cools a spiciness becomes apparent. The earthiness is still prevalent but a sweetness is also reminiscent of a great PNG. After only performing one roast on my popper and having one cup of this coffee I would absolutely recommend you purchase this coffee. That said, if you have not had a Monsooned Malabar yet order this along with the Mysore. I would highly recommend that you roast and drink the Malabar first. Go through at-least a half pound and then try the Mysore. I have just enough roasted to have one more cup tomorrow morning. This review will be continued. My brew was 465g(tap water)/30g/Chemex. Baratza Encore on 28.
