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.

I love rich, dark coffees but the bitterness in coffee means I usually need two sugars. I barely even need one with this, it's got a lovely deep flavour but without the bitterness. I would definitely recommend it.

Iv had my filter coffee machine for a few years now but only recently been brave enough to buy a grinder and do my own beans, so glad i have done this though and even happier to have found whittards. I had never tried the monsoon malabar beans before or even the pre ground but omg its lush its is my new favorite coffee will definitely be buying more of this :) whittards keep up the great service :)

Best coffee ever! Great for bean to cup coffee machines and the aroma fills the kitchen. Wicked!

Has to be my favourite coffee and also a hit with family and friends. The best way to end a meal along with liqueur.

This used to be my favourite coffee, rich and dark. Then the last two orders I found the bean drier and lighter in colour/roast with nothing of the taste I so much enjoyed for the last 6 years????????
