Dasaya is a short form of Dawala Samayawi, which literally mean purple bellflowers. The Dasaya aims to remind drinkers of purplish or bluish fruit such as grapes and blueberry, as well as purplish florals.
To fulfil the Dasaya’s quality requirement, this batch of Dasaya is sourced from an extremely high altitude of 1900-2100m. The raw coffee itself has a very low defect rates, and the roasted version promises excellent purplish aroma and notes.
