Indian Monsooned Malabar is a type of coffee grown in the Malabar coast of India, specifically in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, along the Western Ghats. The coffee is grown under the shade of tall trees and harvested during the monsoon season, which contributes to its distinct flavour and unique processing.
After harvesting, Monsooned Malabar coffee beans are stored in an open warehouse and exposed to the wind and humidity of the monsoon rains. This unique processing results in a unique flavour profile, characterised by a strong, full-bodied taste with a hint of spiciness and a distinct aroma.
Indian Monsoon Malabar coffee is also known for its low acidity and smooth finish. It is often considered to be of the best coffee varieties in India and is highly sought after by coffee connoisseurs and aficionados.

Exploring Indian Coffee Beans
India has a rich history of cultivating coffee that dates back to the 17th century. Tea may be the first beverage that comes to mind when considering India; however, the country’s coffee beans are no less extraordinary. With various flavour profiles, Indian coffee beans are gaining popularity and recognition worldwide, particularly the Monsooned Malabar coffee.
A Dance of Winds: Monsooned Malabar Coffee
Monsooned Malabar coffee is a particular type of Indian coffee that undergoes a unique post-harvest process to develop its characteristic taste and aroma. Carefully harvested beans from the lush Malabar Coast of southwest India begin the process. Here, we expose them to the region’s seasonal monsoon winds, which play a vital role in shaping their unique character.
During the monsoon season, the beans are stored in open warehouses, absorbing moisture from the damp winds. This additional moisture causes the beans to swell, change colour, and develop a distinct flavour profile. After several weeks of exposure to the monsoon winds, the beans are sun-dried and then sorted to ensure only the finest quality beans make it into the final product.
