Indian Malabar by Storehouse Coffee Review |
  • Storehouse Coffee

    Hendersonville, North Carolina
  • Indian Malabar

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2009
Origin: Southern India. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Soft round aroma of nut and aromatic wood, with a balancing roughly musty hint. In the cup full body and notes of sweet chocolate, pungent cedar and a hint of vanilla. The chocolate turns mildly bittersweet in the finish.

Notes: Judging by the cup, this coffee is either monsooned or a blend containing a large percentage of monsooned coffee. Monsooned coffees are exposed to wet, salty winds inside special open-sided warehouses during the monsoon season. After several months of such exposure the beans swell to about twice their normal size, lose acidity, and develop a mildly malty, musty character. Located in the Appalachian mountains of Western North Carolina, Storehouse is a roast-to-order coffee company dedicated to bringing its customers an exceptional coffee experience.

Who Should Drink It: Round nut and chocolate-toned coffee, bracing black and sturdy with milk.
