INDIA Malabar (Monsoon) - Whole Beans
Monsoon Malabar Arabica is a coffee that can divide enthusiasts - some love it and refuse to drink anything else, others loathe it.
Monsoon Malabar is often well regarded as being perfect for that typically classic Italian style espresso experience due to the thick, viscous body and the incredibly low acid. The difference between the Monsoon Malabar and general Italian style coffees is that the Monsoon Malabar is 100% arabica whereas most, if not all Italian style coffees contain varying amounts of robusta.
