    Monsooned Malabar is aged and dried slowly in the monsoon winds on the west coast of India. Laid in open-sided barns, the moisture laden winds from the Arabian Sea swell the exposed beans during the monsoon months of June to September.

    It’s an interesting bean to roast. The ageing process means they look different in their raw form, older than the usual green beans that we see. We know it here in the roastery as “Mellow Yellow” as it’s green (raw) beans are actually yellow and not green. It’s also our second most popular coffee, so we roast a lot of it!

    As with all our coffees, it can be brewed in all methods, but we think espresso is best to maintain its excellent crema.

    Cup profile: Light to medium light Sweet and Fairly soft

    When the beans arrive in the UK, we slow roast them meticulously in small batches until we reach the optimum roasted colours which makes the coffee appealing both to the palate and the eye.
