One of India’s finest coffees, Monsoon Malabar is also one of the best loved of all our blends. Exceptionally smooth with a sweet, spicy kick, this coffee is unique to the lush Malabar Coast of Karnataka and Kerala, where it has protected status. Exposed for months on end, the Typica varietal Arabica beans are washed to a pale gold by the steamy storms of the monsoon season - the secret behind this coffee’s distinctive taste profile.

Monsoon Malabar’s unique process of exposure was discovered by chance back in the 16th century, as spice ships transported the beans back across the seas to Europe. Stored deep within the hold, the damp, humid conditions caused the beans to swell, neutralising any acidity and producing a deep, heavy sweetness - an immediate hit with Europeans. 
Today, this coffee is drunk the world over, its beautiful mellow smoothness making it the perfect after dinner drink. Now available in one of our beautifully designed refillable coffee caddies!


Pure arabica beans from the Malabar Coast.

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

My favourite coffee by miles. Needs to be made as fresh as possible, then you'll taste the wonderful distinctive flavour. Highly recommended.

This is my absolute favourite coffee. As I dont live anywhere near a Whittards store I have to rely on mail order and occasionally run out. No other brand labelled "Monsoon Malabar" come anywhere near the quality or flavour.
A super coffee

I love this coffee and always have.
It has a wonderful natural sweetness while remaining tangy and strong in flavour.
To re-emphasise a previous review - I have been a fan of strong, sweet coffee but recently decided that I needed to reduce my sugar intake - I do not need sugar in Monsoon Malabar.

Before my local Whittard closed, I was known there as ' monsoon Malabar lady'. I now order online (10*4oz and freeze) and it is still my favourite coffee.

These days I probably only drink three or four coffees on a regular basis and this is one of them. Distinctive and with a great taste of the Far East this coffee has always been a winner and can be drunk at any time of the day. A wonderful complimentary smokiness that stands out from the pack.
