Monsoon Malabar is arguably the most famous Coffee to originate from India. It undergoes a unique processing method whereby the Green beans are exposed to the thick, damp monsoon air for several months, which causes the beans to swell while losing some of their natural acidity.
The name derives from the Malabar Coast of Karnataka and Kerala, South India, where this process takes place. The result, once medium-dark-roasted here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, is a Coffee with a robust sweetness and defined spicy notes. It is a rich Coffee with a strong character, one that transcends when roasted using the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to roast the beans. Then, all of our Coffees, as well as our Teas and Tisanes, are packed fresh to order, with “fresh” being the keyword. We promote quality and consistency with all of our products, our Monsoon Malabar Coffee being a prime example.
There is a common misconception with most Indian Coffees. Many believe them to be of lower quality, which is, admittedly, the case with at least some Indian Coffees, but then again, it is also the case with Coffees from anywhere in the world! We deal only with high-quality products, meaning our Monsoon Malabar Coffee is no exception.
The truth is that the Indian Coffee Industry has a bad name for itself. But strictly speaking, we do not think it is entirely fair. The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company are here to promote its more exceptional qualities, our Monsoon Malabar Coffee showcasing these qualities with steadfast efficiency.
While present in India since the 16th Century CE, Coffee only emerged as a trade asset during the mid-1990’s, when the Indian government ceded tight control of the Industry and returned it to the farmers, thereby boosting produce in terms of both quality and sales. The change in India’s Coffee industry is, in many ways, emblematic of the nation’s own emergence as an economic powerhouse. Today, India’s Coffee Industry is a force to be reckoned with, particularly when it comes to Monsoon Malabar Coffee.
What does your morning cup say about you? With Monsoon Malabar Coffee, it suggests adventure. Not only is it the product of a truly fascinating cultivating method, but also the product of a country that has just recently found the limelight with Coffee production. If Monsoon Malabar Coffee is anything to go on, then the Indian Coffee Industry has a bright future ahead. Be adventurous today with our Monsoon Malabar Coffee.
