Description

Legend has it that in olden times, when wooden vessels carried raw coffee from India to Europe, during the monsoon months, the coffee beans would take almost 6 months to sail around the Cape of Good Hope. The coffee beans, exposed to constant humid conditions, underwent characteristic changes.

During this time the beans changed in size, structure, screen size, color and in cup. This uncommon, special, soft cup was given a hearty welcome in Europe. Monsooned Malabar is an essential part of many excellent coffee blends made by specialty coffee roasters. For many of them, it has become a “must have in stock” coffee. Unfortunately, its availability is very limited due to its special treatment.
