India Monsooned Malabar 5 LB

<< Previous in 5 LB Varietals Next in 5 LB Varietals >>



Aged India coffee exposed to monsoon conditions, with a golden color and a unique mellow flavor. Over 150 years ago the British started cultivating coffee on the Southern slopes in India and transporting the raw coffee to Europe in large wooden ships. The journey around Cape Hope took almost 6 months. During this long journey the raw coffee was exposed to rain and humidity causing the coffee’s characteristics to change. The coffee became pale gold in color, lost acidity and swelled in size. Europeans became accustomed to this coffee with its mellow earthy flavor. After the Suez Canal opened the shipment time became very short and the coffee was no longer aged in the monsoon winds, causing the coffee to lose popularity since it looked and tasted different. To recreate the monsooned coffee, India Monsoon is now purposely stored in monsoon conditions on the Malabar Coast of India for 12-16 weeks. During this time the coffee is periodically rotated for even exposure.  Arabica
