Although Brazil commands the Top Spot for Coffee globally, India has been a major player in this commodity.

India Monsoon Malabar


Monsoon Malabar is a unique coffee grown at 1,000 to 2,000 meters above sea level. It is a significantly larger arabica bean named for the region and its rainy season which contributes to the beans' higher moisture content. To create a "monsooned" crop, the green coffee is warehoused in an open structure protected from rain while moist tropical air blows through the storage area. In a 2 to 3 month period, the beans absorb moisture, losing a degree of natural acidity and at roast time, a richer yet mellower beverage results. 

India Mysore Nuggets

The Malabar Coast: the Arabian Ocean: the West facing slopes of India’s Ghat Mountains: these things supply ideal coffee growing conditions to the region centered in Karnakata (formerly Mysore). A mineral-rich volcanic soil, suitable altitudes, good rainfall and temperature variations make for the winning team that coffee needs here. Shade growth and one-thousand meter altitude means longer growing periods and slow ripening. The coffee cherry, as a result, is richer in taste and higher in sugar content.
