Legend has it that Monsoon Coffee was developed by accident. The story goes that in the days of sailing ships Arabica Coffee bound for overseas encountered torrential rain at the coastal port and across the high seas to its ultimate destination. So much so that the coffee changed its characteristics completely on arrival.
These days the coffee is monsooned with a controlled process indirectly exposing the coffee to the same moist warm winds.
During the process of monsooning, the Coffee undergoes certain biological changes, bloats to almost twice its size, changes its texture and colour to pale gold and above all acquires a unique flavour and quality.
- Can be tricky to blend with as it has very pronounced flavours. Will add body by the bucket load. Go dark towards or into 2nd crack.
