BEHIND THE CUP
One of India’s finest coffees, Monsoon Malabar is also one of the best loved coffees in our range. Exceptionally smooth with a sweet, spicy kick, this coffee is unique to the lush Malabar Coast of India, where it has protected status. Exposed for months on end, the Typica varietal Arabica beans are washed to a pale gold by the steamy storms of the monsoon season - the secret behind this coffee’s distinctive taste profile.
Monsoon Malabar’s unique process of exposure was discovered by chance back in the 16th century, as spice ships transported the beans back across the seas to Europe. Stored deep within the hold, the damp, humid conditions caused the beans to swell, neutralising any acidity and producing a deep, heavy sweetness - an immediate hit with Europeans.
Today, this coffee is drunk the world over, its beautiful mellow smoothness making it a hit with coffee lovers who enjoy coffee with a rich chocolate intensity. Now available from Good Life Coffee.
