Leela's kitchen Monsoon Malabar coffee beans - all the way from the Canara region in the Malabar coast. The origins of the Monsoon Malabar coffee dates back to the era of the British Raj, where wooden vessels carried raw coffee from India to Europe. Monsoon Malabar, is a process applied to coffee beans. The harvested coffee beans are kissed by the monsoon rain and winds, causing the beans to swell and loose the original acidity, resulting in a flavour profile with a practically neutral pH balance. This is a certified speciality coffee of India.
