Indian Monsoon Malabar
India's most unusual coffee is the famous Monsooned Malabar, a dry-processes coffee that has been exposed for three to four months in open-sided warehouses to the moisture-laden winds of the monsoon. The monsooning process yellows the bean and reduces the acidity, imparting a heavy, syrupy depth to the cup together with a bold yet smooth finish. Monsooned coffees are considered a delicacy by many, perhaps because of the romance of the name, the history, and the exotic process. Potent, aromatic and wild, these beans are great for those who like strong, deep robust flavors.
