Does your coffee have certifications?

We place utmost importance on the taste & quality of coffee and chicory we source. Our suppliers are thoroughly vetted to meet these high standards. While we use some coffees which are classified UTZ and Specialty, we don't advertise our blend as being so.

Can I brew without a traditional filter pot?

Yes! At the moment we can grind (Chakram Blend) to suit manual brewing techniques such as mokapots (stovetops) and aeropresses. You can also purchase our Yodha Blend (Pure Coffee) as beans. When we set out to develop our blend, we did extensive research and testing to settle on a blend that would taste equally good when prepared the old-fashioned Indian style and with other popular coffee making equipment. You can check out our Brew Guide if you would like to learn the traditional brewing method and serving style.

How is 'Indian' Filter Coffee different from a Filter Coffee?

Indian Filter Coffee brew is traditionally full bodied, with low acidity. It derives its name from the filter pot that is traditionally used to brew this coffee. The resulting brew—known as decoction—is as strong as espresso, and suitable for milk-based coffees. In the Western world, the Indian filter coffee can be a misnomer as filter coffees in the west are lighter brews that tend to have ligther body and generally consumed as black coffee.
