Indian Monsoon Malabar

Description - Indian Monsoon Malabar

The Monsooning process consists of exposing natural coffee beans in layers of 4-6 inch thickness to moisture-laden Monsoon winds in a well-ventilated brick or concrete-floored warehouse. This process is carried out on the West Coast of India, making use of the winds from the Arabian Sea during the Southwest Monsoon months of June through September.

The processing begins with top-grade beans, Arabica Cherry-AB, which has already been processed by the dry method. In this 12-16 week process the beans absorb moisture in stages, swelling to nearly twice their original size and developing colours ranging from pale gold to light brown. The end result is a special, unique flavour.
