Sourced from the Harley Estate in Sakleshpur and the Kalladevarapura Estate in Chikmagalur, Classic Coffee has a cool range of coffees that will sort you out with the perfect type of caffeine from morning to night, come rain or shine. So coffee noobs, no need to figure how much to steep it or how to brew it to get a lighter cuppa. And the best part? They’ve named — and coloured — them so you won’t need to think twice! With instructions on how to make them too, you’ll likely be a pro maker soon enough.
Blaze, in a sunshine yellow package, is the perfect caffeine kick to start mornings with. I loved that it was a bit malty and intense, and though initially bitter, the heavy brew settles in after a sip or two. For the afternoon, naturally the Matinee (red bag). Perky, slightly spicy and light, it was perfectly acidic to perk me up for an afternoon meeting. To wind down, I quite enjoyed the Sundowner — suitably in a light aqua green packaging. But there was a hint of sweet which wasn’t quite my cup of tea (coffee?).
My favourite aspect of this line of new brews is that they have a coffee for the night! Busting the myth that it isn’t wise to have coffee at night, Tapaswini and Chandni Purnesh, part of the family that runs Classic Coffees, mulled over the fact that they needed their night cap! And thus the Afterhours (purple packet) was born! A mellow and flavourful blend that is smooth and goes down well, it did help me unwind.
