Monsoon Malabar - India

Back around 2008 – 2010 this was Redroasters best selling coffee and we featured it until around 2016.  So for 2020, Redroasters are delighted to bring back this unique and bold coffee.  They are roasting this to bring out a really bold and earthy flavour. For those who love a classic Italian espresso, this is our third-wave version of that.  Never bitter, perfect with milk and if you like an espresso with a kick this is the one.

Legend has it that Monsoon coffee was developed by accident. The story goes that in the days of sailing arabica coffee to Scandinavia, so much torrential rain was encountered en route that by the time the coffee had reached its final destination the coffee characteristics had changed completely on arrival.

These days the process of monsooning coffee has been streamlined and presently undergoes a sequence of sophisticated operations, and during this process, the coffee actually bloats to almost twice its size, changes its texture and colour to pale gold and acquires a really unique flavour and quality. Wind force, moisture content and humidity controls are monitored and controlled and the coffee is then polished to add on a lustre to the beans and graded to various Monsoon classifications.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
