This full, rich body coffee has low acidity but with a spicy complex aroma. Enjoy a distinct flavor imparted by storing green coffees in open warehouses through the Monsoon rain season.
Indian Monsoon Coffee
This unique coffee originates from the days of sailing ships. It could take months for coffee shipments from India to reach Europe. During the shipping process, the Indian coffee beans absorbed moisture, causing them to swell to nearly double the size and changed the color to a golden yellow. The coffee acquired a distinctly rich and mellow taste.
Today, this process is recreated by storing green coffee beans in special warehouses from June through September during the humid monsoon rain season along the Indian West Coast hence, the name Monsoon coffee.
The best Indian offee is usually grown in the states of Karataka, Kerala and Tamilnadu. The coffee is typically grown on terraces in mountainous areas up to nearly 6,000 feet in elevation.
Enjoy this smooth and full-bodied coffee.
