India - Monsooned Malabar
The Indian Monsooned Malabar is a very low acidity, thick and creamy, earthy style cup of coffee. There is a lot of sweet tones in this cup and you can taste just little hint of the soft fruit tones and classic Indian spice notes.
Monsooning" is a style of processing that is particular to India, specifically the Malabar Coast, including Kerala and Karnataka, and produces a cup character which is remarkable in its uniqueness from other cofees and processing. Coffee is left quite literally exposed in the monsoon weather during the rainy season, for three to four months, which tempers the coffee's natural acidity and encourages more chocolaty, earthy, and spicy qualities often sought after in classic espresso blends.
