Indian Monsoon Malabar AA Coffee History and Processing: The Indian Monsoon Malabar AA Coffee is a very unique type of coffee with several distinguishing properties that make it special. The discovery of Indian Coffee was made by accident. During the long voyage from India to Europe, ships carrying coffee were exposed to heavy monsoon winds. The beans on these ships changed color, the coffee's characteristics were altered, and in turn, the coffee developed a whole new taste. This new and unique brand of coffee was appropriately named the Monsoon Malabar AA. The color, shape, and size of the beans as well as their aromas and taste are the results of special post-harvest processing. The monsoon process consists of exposing natural coffee beans to moisture-laden monsoon winds in well-ventilated brick or concrete-floored warehouses that are four-to-six inches thickness. This process is carried out on the West Coast of India through the use of the Arabian Sea winds during the Southwest Monsoon months of June through September.
