India Monsooned Malabar AA

(5 customer reviews)

A unique and special humidity-exposed matured bean with an immense flavour profile – rich and complex with spiced, smoked barrel notes.

We find this coffee is best in an espresso-based drink, although it can be brewed however you find it best due to its versatility.

A very unique monsoon-matured Indian coffee bean affected by long exposure to humidity. It has an immense flavour profile – rich and complex with spiced, malty, tobacco notes. A real unique taste.

Roasted at Iron & Fire to really bring out notes that are reminiscent of dark smokey libraries and billiard tables. A great digestif after a hearty meal, this coffee would perhaps pair very well with a Cuban cigar… stunning.

The India Monsooned Malabar AA is a regular Plantation AA exposed to a seven-week process that consists of exposing the coffee to the humidity caused by the Monsoon storms that hit the Malabar coastal region, located between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats. During the days when sailing ships were used, the coffee from India took about six months to arrive in Europe; during that time the coffee was affected by humidity and changed its flavour and appearance, when the Suez Canal was opened and the steam boats appeared, the time for coffee to reach Europe was reduced and the coffee beans were no longer affected as when in the old sailing days. Consumers in Europe started missing the flavour; therefore, the Monsoon process was created in order to imitate the effect of long exposure to humidity.

    What a great coffee. Full of flavour, subtle and comes with a good impact as good coffee should do. A coffee for every day, but not without the big taste.

    This is my favourite coffee from I&F. It has a light bitterness with no acidity and tastes like chocolate biscuits! Freshly ground and filtered it’s unbeatable.

    An almost malty mellow coffee, makes a great flat white, leaves the palate clean, and keeps me and my husband going back for more. Thank you Iron and Fire.

    I really enjoy this coffee in my cafetière. It is full bodied and has a unique malty chocolatey flavour. Definitely worth trying and thanks for the speedy delivery!
