February's Coffee of the Month

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!

Having only read the previous reviews an info I ordered on a whim. The service was superb. A strong dark bean which makes richly flavoured coffee without any bitterness! My brother and I were both struck dumb by simply not having the superlatives to describe it!
If you like strong coffee this is for you! I am hoping to win the lottery and buy my own plantation. Don't think I will be drinking much else.
