Monsooned Malabar is a dry processed coffee that has been exposed post drying to 3 to 4 months of moisture from the monsoon winds and rain, historically at the port of Malabar. The process is designed to mimic the exposure the coffee would have received whilst in transit on clippers to Europe. The process swells and makes the bean turn a unique pale color. At specialist drying yards, with raking, turning and ventilating, this process can be well managed and give consistency to the monsoon profile flavors and profile of caramel and syrupy body associated with this process.
