This is one of the world’s most sought-after Indian coffee and our monsoon malabar is India’s first single estate monsoon malabar. The origin of the Monsooned Malabar goes way back to the British Raj, during which the beans were transported in clipper hulls for three months to Europe. The processing would take place naturally as the moist monsoon winds from the Arabian sea would give the beans a unique flavor and a colour.
With the advent of cargo ships, the beans no longer required three weeks to be transported thus the natural processing time was cut short and the taste was lost. But the coffee farmers replicated the conditions on land by Sun driying green beans in warehouse only on the Malabar coast, where deliberate exposure to the sea air and monsoon wind results in the beans that swell, fade, and reduce acidity.
