Coffee Origin: Southwest Coast of India

This coffee is dry-processed then exposed to the moist monsoon winds from June through September causing the beans to swell in size and to lose their original acidity, resulting in a very full-bodied, mellow but nutty, woodsy and slightly weathered taste. This is an ultra-low acidity coffee with a unique taste not found in any other coffee in the world.

Our Indian Monsooned Malabar AA is the highest quality grade for a monsooned coffee.

Roastmaster Suggestion: Smooth Bold Roast

Coffee in India

The famous lore says coffee was introduced to India by a saint named Baba Budan in the 16th century, while on a pilgrimage to Mecca. He wanted to share his findings with his country, so he brought seven coffee beans from the Yemeni port, and planted them on the Chandragiri Hills in present day Karnataka. Here it all began. India is the only country that grows all of its coffee under shade, creating an exotic and unique coffee. There are around 50 types of shade trees dispersed on plantations, which help to prevent soil from moving on a steep slope. Also the trees keep the continuous cycle of decomposition alive, bringing up rich nutrients to help the coffee plants protect themselves from quick weather changes. Also, varieties of spice and fruit crops grow amongst the coffee plantations in India. 

Monsooned Coffee
Monsoonsed coffee was created accidentally on a ship load of coffee sent for Europe. On the journey, the beans got wet as cargo and were laid out to dry at the port. The beans swelled to almost double their size and a new kind of coffee was born. Presently, this Monsooned style of coffee is prepared at the curing works situated on the West Coast of Southern India, where the monsoon is very intense. The beans are dried under Indian sun then stored in special warehouses, where they are exposed to specific element such as sea-air and monsoon winds. These elements cause the beans to swell in size, reduce acidity and take on a mellowed but somewhat earthy flavor. 

Coffee Grading in India

Grade indicators, which vary by country, are used to describe the largest beans: AA India, Kenya, Tanzania, and Papua New Guinea or AAA in Peru. Beans with a screen size of 17 or 18 (17-18/64 of an inch) are assigned the AA which denotes the size, shape and density of the bean. It is a well-known fact that the largest A bean is going to produce more of the treasured oils that give your coffee the fabulous aroma and intense flavor. 

India's AA grade is based on the fewest visual imperfections and largest bean size. In order to ensure the quality of monsooned coffee, only "A" grades of both Arabica Cherry and Robusta Cherry are subjected to monsooning.

Country's Flag

Flag description: Three equal horizontal bands of blue (top), white, and blue, with five blue, five-pointed stars arranged in an X pattern centered in the white band; the stars represent the members of the former Federal Republic of Central America: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua; the blue bands symbolize the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea; the white band represents the land between the two bodies of water and the peace and prosperity of its people.
