Indian Coffee

Most coffee in India is grown in the southern states of Karanataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala (Davids, Roasting 116). South Indian coffee is typically wet-processed and is smooth, sweet, and medium bodied.  At its best Indian coffee reaches the flavor characteristics of Pacific coffees, but at its worst it is simply bland and uninspiring.

Indian monsooned coffee mutes the acidity and has a heavier body often appropriate to add depth to an espresso blend.  The best monsooned coffee is Monsooned Malabar.
