Café Coffee Day's Dark Forest coffee
I finally bought the specialty coffee I've been eyeing for a while at Café Coffee Day yesterday. This is called Dark Forest and was originally launched in Central Europe. It comes from coffee grown in the famous Baba Budan Giri mountains near Chikmagalur. Baba Budan is the man who brought coffee to India. He is supposed to have managed to steal some coffee seeds from Arabia and bring them to India under risk of severe punishment if caught.
I tasted the coffee this morning and it is, indeed, something special. If you are interested in savouring different kinds of coffee, try this one. It's around Rs.125 for 200g but it's good!
