Rast Malaba, Mysore, India

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.

Rast Serrano Lavado

100% Arabica, medium roast, excellent as an espresso, but also makes a nice café crème. Insider tip! Cuba belongs to the West Indies and is located within the Antilles archipelago. The cultivation of coffee in Cuba began with the migration of French settlers. They came to the island in 1792, after a slave revolt in Haiti. Santiago's cityscape is strongly marked by French influence. Many social and economic innovations were also inspired by the French. However, due to the dominance of the Spanish, the French settlers were pushed into the rural areas over time. Many Frenchmen established coffee plantations in eastern Cuba, where they applied the knowledge they had brought with them.From 1815, the export of Cuban coffee began. In the nineteenth century, Cuba was one of the world's largest coffee producers. in 1827, there were 2,067 coffee plantations on the island, but most of them were destroyed during the ten-year war of independence (1868-1878).Serrano Lavado grows under shade trees of legumes (Leucaena white-headed mimosa and ingas) in the eastern highlands of the Sierra Maestra, on the border between the two provinces of Granma and Santiago de Cuba. The plantations are located on loamy sandy soil mainly on mountain slopes at an altitude of 1'000 to 2'000 metres. Cultivation and harvesting are done by traditional manual labour, the beans are processed wet and naturally dried in the sun. Artificial fertilisers, pesticides and fungicides are not used, which benefits both the coffee plants and the environment.
