India Kerala Malabar

$36.95
The India Kerala Malabar is an interesting coffee. Many of you have probably not had the pleasure of sampling a coffee originating from India.  Lucky for you, my frequent travels to the country allowed me to find an outstanding Single Origin to share with you folks back home. I was drawn to this coffee because of the history. Coffee was a major export of India to European countries several hundred years ago. On the journey back home, the coffee aboard the ships would be exposed to the elements on the high seas. Exposure to light, water, and sun (among other factors) morphed the coffee into something different. Today, farmers in India replicate that process by harvesting the coffee and then allow it to sit and be exposed to the rain during the Monsoon Season. This process typically takes three to four months and alters the color of the raw coffee from green to gold, similar to that of a peanut. If you want to know what coffee tasted like in the 1700's in Europe, this bean is the closest to the real thing you will find.

India Kerala Malabar

This review is for brewing the India Kerala Malabar with a french press. The coffee had a sweeter than usual taste to it and a fairly light flavor profile. Acidity was very low, as was bitterness. I personally prefer darker/stronger roasts, but for someone with a lighter pallet or issues with acid, this is probably a good coffee for them.

India Kerala Malabar

One of my favorite new coffees. I frequently pair my cigars with new coffees and the India Kerala Malabar fits the bill nicely.

Smooth and Different

Very smooth flavor and finish.This a coffee that teases you with the aroma and delivers on taste. I'm no expert but there is a slight saltiness, with very little acidity. The overall flavor is hard to explain because it's like nothing I've had before. I can tell you that it pairs great with a nice medium bodied cigar and is a coffee I would order again.
