India Karnataka Malabar 250G
Malabar is a region located on the southwest coast of the Indian peninsula. The influence of sea winds gives all the typicality to this coffee.
The term Malabar "Moussonné" was coined after a transport accident. Shipments of Indian coffee beans destined for Europe and passing through the Cape of Good Hope were exposed to the high humidity of sea spray during this voyage. On arrival, however, these cafes enjoyed some success in Europe. The special qualities of this coffee were soon sought after.
Plain coffee is now stored in storage spaces open on the sides, where it is then exposed to monsoon winds. This coffee has had an official quality sign for several years: the Geographical Indication Malabar "Moussonné".
