Story

India Monsooned Malabar AA creates is a particularly strong coffee bean with unique combinations of brown spice, tobacco, and wood notes with an intense earthy finish. Monsooned Malabar creates a full body brew with low acidity and works well as an espresso blend. The monsooned process is unique to the South-West coast of India, consisting of exposing green coffee to the high humidity conditions. During the monsoon season, exposure to humidity causes the coffee beans to swell as they soak in moisture, unveiling the distinct aromas and unique flavors of the coffee beans. The process takes between 12 and 16 months as the coffee beans double in size and turn a pale golden color.
