Roasting Monsooned Malabar Coffee

Roasting Monsooned Malabar Coffee has been a lot of fun and challenging at the same time. Grown in Southern India at 1200 meters, this low density coffee us very unique. The process has changed to color from a dark green to a pale looking coffee. The beans are swollen and very lightweight. You are faced with all kinds of hurdles when roasting including roasting defects, color problems and heat management.
