The India Malabar AA Monsooned is absolutely unique! It displays a light body and low acidity with a mellow flavour, a result of the Monsooning process:
The beans are picked and washed during the summer months which is Monsoon season. They are then spread out in trays in large open warehouses. They are not directly rained on but absorb the moisture from the air which makes them swell and brings out its mellow flavour. In this way, they recreated the much sought after taste that was created by accident over 400 years ago when this coffee traveled in the damp holds of slow sailing ships for up to six months.
It’s a particular taste and may not be for everyone, but coffee lovers (and specially espresso lovers) are rediscovering this coffee which produces an abundantly rich crema. 454 g (1 lb)
