More About this Coffee :

The commercial cultivation of coffee in India began in 1840, when the British established coffee plantations throughout the mountains of Southern India, where the tropical climate , high altitude, sunny slopes, ample rainfall and soil rich in humus content proved ideal for coffee cultivation.
Malabar is a region located on the south west coast of the Indian peninsula. The influence of the sea winds give this coffee all its typicity. The term “ Monsooned ” was invented following a transport accident. Shipments of Indian coffee beans bound for Europe via the Cape of Good Hope were exposed to high levels of humidity during their journey. Upon arrival, these coffees had a certain success in Europe as this quality was particularly sought after.

Monsoon Malabar coffee is prepared from Arabica cherries (“cherry” refers to dry-processed coffees in India). After grading, the coffee is transported to the coastal city of Mangalore where the “monsooning” is carried out in large openwalled warehouses.

During the rainy months of June through August, the coffee is spread inside the warehouses with very good aeration and ventilation at a particular thickness so that the coffee slowly absorbs moisture. After it absorbs sufficient moisture and bloats in size, it has to be periodically bulked and bagged and stacked so as to ensure proper and uniform “monsooning”. This process has to be carried out many times during the months of the monsoon.

After September, when the rains subside and the temperatures are higher, the ghostly white and swollen beans are sent through the final grading (gravity tables and hand-sorting) in order to obtain the Malabar export quality. The farmers not only produce coffee, they also grow pepper, cardamom, and oranges. Most of the farms are 80 to 100 years old and belong to third generation growers.
