Monsoon Washed Malabar


Monsoon  Malabar is one of the most unique gourmet coffees sold on the market. This coffee from India also holds the distinction of being one of the most difficult to roast which adds to it mystique and rarity. Possessing a flavour like no other coffee, Monsoon Malabar is a must try for the true coffee connoisseur.



A fortunate accident brought to light this wonderful way to process coffee.  A freighter with a hold full of coffee left India late in the season and was delayed by the monsoons.  When the ship finally arrived and the casks of coffee were opened, it was discovered that the beans had turned to a golden yellow color and had swollen to nearly half again their normal size because of extreme moisture.

Thinking quickly the trader sold the beans as Monsoon Washed Malabar, a ‘new’ kind of coffee from exotic India.  The rich mellow taste and beautiful golden appearance were a big hit and the trader returned to request more of these Monsoon  Malabar beans.

To this very day Monsoon  Malabar beans are still produced with the help of this natural phenomenon.  This unique Indian coffee is a must have for any coffee connoisseur.
