Light in colour, this coffee has a mellow body, with a smooth and malty finish. Monsooned Malabar uses a very distinctive processing method inspired by the shipment of coffee from India to Europe in the 19th Century.
Beans would be stored below the water line and kept humid by the porous wood of the ships’ hulls, resulting in reduced acidity and a slightly golden raw bean.
This method is imitated today by exposing natural process beans to monsoon winds full of moisture over around a 14 week period. It recreates the low acidity and colour, while also making the raw beans swell to about double their original size.

We maintain long term relationships with our carefully selected coffee farms, to provide the stability they need to plan for the future. The added bonus? Coffee that improves with every single crop, as their farming practices and equipment improves.

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago.
