monsoon malabar aa is s.795 varietal blends that are grown and ripened at 900 ~ 1300m.s.795 was developed in the 1940s, using ‘kents’ arabica, known for its high quality. they yield bold beans, superior quality, and a balanced cup with subtle flavor notes of mocca. these beans spend up to 3~6 months of monsoon process, at regional monsoon centers in the western ghats of india.
monsooned coffee or coffee beans ’swollen’ with moisture from the air, is prepared at the curing works situated on the west coast of southern india. stored in special warehouses, moist monsoon winds circulate around the coffee beans, making them swell in size and take on a mellowed but aggressive, musty flavor. this process yellows the bean and reduces the acidity, imparting a heavy, syrupy flatness reminiscent of aged coffees. resulting in a flavor profile with a practically neutral ph balance.
please note we sell 160 grams of green beans, the roasting service is free. monsoon malabar beans are larger in volume. we run our machine by volume, which works best for our roaster. therefore, in order to keep the consistency in our roasts, we roast the same volume of all beans. the same volume of monsoon malabar is 160 grams, compared to other beans at 220 grams.after roasting the beans lose 12~20% of the mass. when you receive the beans from us, it will not be 160 grams. we will write the final weight of the roasted beans on the package. we also provide a video of the roast.
have a great cup!
