    Indian Monsooned coffee is prepared from Arabica cherries ("cherry" refers to dry-processed coffees in India). After grading, the coffee is transported to the coastal city of Mangalore where the monsooning is carried out in large open-walled warehouses. During the rainy months of June through August, the coffee is spread inside the warehouses with very good aeration and ventilation at a particular thickness so that the coffee slowly absorbs moisture. After it absorbs sufficient moisture and bloats in size, it has to be periodically bulked and bagged and stacked so as to ensure proper and uniform monsooning. This process has to be carried out many times during the months of the monsoon. After September, when the rains subside and the temperatures are higher, the ghostly white and swollen beans are sent through the final grading. The farmers not only produce coffee, they also grow pepper, cardamom, and oranges. Most of the farms are 80 to 100 years old and belong to third generation growers.

    On the Royal Water Process: Green coffee beans are soaked in large vats of water during which the caffeine and flavors release from the beans. This caffeinated, coffee-flavored water solution is then run through a special filter that pulls the caffeine from the water. Once this process is finished, the caffeine-free, flavor-charged water is reintroduced to the beans, restoring any flavor lost in the initial phase. This process is 100% chemical free.

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Excellent decaf coffee. Taste is warm and roasty. Decaf often lacks the fullness of regular coffee and this one measures up.


    Not really a dark roast

    I expected a dark roast to come a little darker than this one did. The coffee itself was good. It was more of a medium roast to me.

    Sumatra decaf vs. Monsoon

    Pros:
    Cons:

    We almost always buy Sumatra decaf for the extra flavor boost. We tried the Monson because it was a darker roast. We really had no idea we would love it this much. It is more flavorful, more complex and much better bragging rites. We will continue buying the monsoon
