Malabar is grown in the Indian district of Kerala. After harvesting, it is first exposed to the monsoon rains for 5 days to moisten it and then dried by the monsoon winds for 7 weeks.When coffee was still transported by sailing ships, a journey from India to Europe took about six months. Due to the change in climate, the green coffee beans changed in colour, size and taste. Today, Indian coffee growers use the monsoon to produce a speciality coffee that has exactly these characteristics - without any time delay. The traditional process of "monsooning" is carried out in Malabar, a region located on the west coast of India north of the city of Cochin. The Malabar region is known for its nature and lush wildlife.The humid monsoon climate causes the changes in the weight and characteristics of the coffee beans, which produce the unique soft and low-acid taste. The "monsooning" process takes place during the months of June to September, when the south-west monsoon winds are at their strongest. The coffee beans are sorted, graded "A Grade" and exposed to the hot and humid climate on well-ventilated cement floors of small drying houses in layers of 10 to 15 cm thickness. This causes them to swell with increasing humidity, so that the original moisture content increases from about 12-14 per cent to about 16-20 per cent. In addition, the beans take on their characteristic straw-yellow to beige colour. The coffee beans are then loosely filled into jute bags and stacked with sufficient distance between them to allow the monsoon to circulate better around the bags and to ensure that the moisture content is about the same in all the beans. During this process, the coffee develops its special taste and smell. The best coffee for a sensitive stomach.Malabar is grown in the Indian district of Kerala.

Demeter coffee versus organic coffee: what's behind it?

Organic coffee and Demeter coffee - two terms that often appear in connection with sustainable coffee enjoyment. But what is the difference? This much can be revealed: Demeter certification includes far stricter guidelines - from compliance with biodynamic production guidelines to a wide range of sustainability aspects.

Why is sustainability so important in coffee production in particular?

Sustainability is the key to ethical, environmentally friendly and future-proof coffee production. But that's not all: sustainable farming methods often lead to higher quality coffee beans with unique flavors, which benefits both producers and consumers. Sustainable practices reduce the use of chemicals, protect soils, preserve biodiversity and protect the climate.

How does organic coffee differ from conventional coffee?

Organic coffee is more than just a drink. It is a statement for environmental awareness, fair trade and pure enjoyment. In contrast to monoculture in conventional cultivation, organic farmers rely on mixed cultivation, which means that coffee plants are allowed to grow together with other plant species. Why is that? This promotes biodiversity and makes the plants more resistant to disease.

Monocultures, on the other hand, harbor serious ecological and economic risks. Focusing on the cultivation of a single plant species over large areas leads to greater susceptibility to diseases and pests and to rapid soil depletion

Coffee plants are very sensitive. Too much heat, but also too much cold, damages them. Moisture is good, but not too much. Coffee farmers like to plant avocado, grapefruit or banana trees, coconut palms or eucalyptus plants next to coffee plants. These mixed cultures ensure that coffee plants are protected from too much sunlight and heavy rainfall.

Organically grown - sustainably enjoyed Conventional coffee cultivation often relies on chemical fertilizers, which provide short-term growth but deplete the soil in the long term. Organic coffee farmers, on the other hand, rely on compost and organic fertilizers. The result? Fertile soils where coffee plants feel right at home.

Fair trade, fair wages Organic coffee stands for fairness not only towards nature, but also towards the coffee farmers. Fair trade practices guarantee fair wages, so that every sip of coffee also bears some social responsibility. Incidentally, unlike conventional coffee, organic farmers harvest their coffee cherries by hand. Industrial harvesting methods are not used.
