Whether it's the ghostly appearance of the ivory coloured raw beans or the uniquely smooth flavour, there's no mistaking Monsooned Malabar. During the golden age of sailing ships, when the fast clippers plied their trade between Britain and Southern India, sacks of raw Indian coffee beans were often left on deck. The moisture-laden monsoon winds swept across the coffee, softening and ageing it's character. Nowadays this is reproduced in open-sided warehouses in India, where the same monsoon winds and high humidity slowly work their magic and remove any trace of acidity. The resulting coffee is incredibly soft and smooth, with a distinctive dry complexity.
Cupping Notes: sweet orange, raspberry, chocolate and hazelnut finish.
- Pure Arabica
- Original Coffee
Packing & Grinding
With one exception (1Kg Beans) EVERY pack of Drury coffee sold via this website is prepared to order. We weigh, grind (if required) and pack your coffee in our heat-sealed foil bags which are equipped with a one-way valve that allows the freshly roasted coffee to release its wonderful-smelling aromas without letting any oxygen in, ensuring your coffee stays fresher for longer.
We can supply our coffee in the following grinds, in ascending particle size:
For all paper filters/drip coffee
For electric and lever espresso machines.*.
For all stove-top espresso brewers.
For permanent filters and perculators.
For French Press or plunger coffee makers.
For grinding at home.
* We calibrate our espresso grind using commercial espresso equipment to give an average across ALL machines and cannot grind specifically for different models. If your machine is particularly sensitive to variation in grind we recommend grinding at home.
A note on Aeropress coffee makers: one of the Aeropress’s great strengths is its flexibility in brewing - dose weight, grind and extracting pressure all have a part to play in this. For that reason one can select any grind from espresso to cafetiere for use in the Aeropress, depending on personal preference. For those new to this form of brewing we would recommend starting off with a medium ground coffee and taking it from there.
