This Indian coffee is incredibly unique and sought-after thanks to the special “monsooning” process it undergoes.
In the days when merchandise was transported by sailboat across the seas, a trip to Europe could last several months, often in hot and humid weather. Thanks to the intense humidity, the beans’ colour and taste would transform; the beans would turn yellow and take on a particular flavour. A flavour which was particularly enjoyed by Europeans.
When it was finally discovered that this unique flavour was a direct result of the exposure to these special climatic conditions, a new process was sought to replicate them.
Today, the “monsoon” coffee taste is re-created by exposing processed beans to the monsoon winds and rains for several weeks, causing them to swell, lose their original acidity and eventually become yellow in appearance. As a result, the beans also get much larger in size.
This coffee is also of the highest quality grade: « AA »
This is one of the world’s most unique coffees, producing a phenomenal and complex flavour profile. It is a very interesting coffee. Its wild taste is ideal for those seeking a strong coffee with deep flavours.
