The technique of "Monsooning" coffee happened accidentally in the deep of sailing ships bound for Europe. The coffee acquired a mellow yet unique taste en route, with the coffee beans 'swelling' due to the moisture in the air whilst also losing some of their natural acidity. Indian coffee growers use this same basic technique to create Indian Monsoon Malabar coffee; once picked the coffee beans are exposed to the moist, salty monsoon winds in the Indian state of Kerala. India is now the 5th largest coffee producer in the world and its Monsoon Malabar coffee has grown in popularity over recent years as people discover its most unusual full-bodied cup with low acidity. We think this coffee is best suited to a full-to-dark roast which our Roastmaster believes enhances its rare malty and tawny characteristics.
