Indian Monsoon Coffee - Monsoon Malabar AA
Indian Monsoon Malabar AA Coffee has a medium body with pleasant under tones, medium acidity and is exceptionally smooth. The Monsoon beans have a thick texture with a hint of a wooden taste. The discovery of Indian Mosooned Coffee was made quite by accident. During the long voyage from India to Europe, sailing ships carrying coffee were exposed to monsoon winds. The beans on these ships underwent a change of color and characteristics and the coffee acquired a whole new taste. This new and unique brand of coffee was appropriately named Monsooned Malabar AA.
The color, shape, and size of the beans as well as their aroma and taste are the results of special post-harvest processing. There is no other coffee like it in the world.
CUP NOTES: Spicy, earthy, smoky, tobacco notes, wood notes, medium body, medium acidity
COFFEE PROCESSING: The monsooning process consists of exposing natural coffee beans in layers of four- to six- inch thickness to moisture laden monsoon wind in a well ventilated brick or concrete-floored warehouse. This process is carried out on the West Coast of India making use of the winds from the Arabaian Sea during the Southwest Monsoon months of June through September.
