More on this much-loved coffee bean...

Monsoon Malabar is a unique variety, produced from Arabica coffee beans grown in Malabar, one of the wettest regions of India and known for its wild monsoon season.

Malabar, located in a mountainous region of southern India, provides ideal coffee-growing conditions, with coffee plants grown at high altitudes, surrounded by lush vegetation and nutrient-rich humus soil.

Once picked, a bean from this region undergoes a unique ‘monsooning’ process to bring out its flavours. First, beans are harvested, washed in fresh spring water and left to dry in the sun. Then, they are transported to open warehouses in Karnataka and Kerala on the Malabar coast.

It’s here where the magic happens…

Spread out evenly on the floors of the open warehouses, the beans are exposed to harsh monsoon winds and rain for three to four months. Exposure to these elements allows beans to soak up moisture from the monsoons, causing them to swell in size, turn from green to pale yellow hues and lose much of their acidity. Throughout the "monsooning" process, beans are also regularly raked and moved around to ensure each bean benefits from its new environment, receiving enough ventilation and soaking up plenty of moisture, while avoiding mould.

Our Monsoon Malabar is a heavy-bodied brew that makes a wonderfully mellow and smooth cup of coffee, with deep, rich flavours and aromas. The roast is often described as bold, earthy and sweet, having tobacco and wood notes, as well as intense aromas of dark chocolate and nuts.
