The Monsoon Malabar bean is an Indian coffee that is famous for its unique and infamous style of treatment.

The deep flavours of the Monsoon Malabar are created by exposure to the warm and humid monsoon storms of India.

This process was designed to replicate the original treatment of the beans on their long voyage back to Britain in wooden sailing vessels. The original journeys accidentally imparted a wonderful deep spiciness to the coffee, which Indian growers were only too happy to replicate in the future.

This coffee contains the essence of India; caramel, spice, wood and leather contained in a strong aromatic drink that cuts through milk.

Not great coffee…

I really wanted to like this coffee, as I like to support local businesses, but the roast is totally uneven, and the beans are greasy and smell like burnt wood. The resulting brew tastes dirty and bitter, like something you’d get at a McDonald’s or Greggs. No discernible flavour notes and absolutely not on par with what I’d expect from an indie roasters.

Hi. I’m sorry you didn’t like your coffee. Clearly something has gone wrong here and we would love to put it right for you.

Please could you call Simon or Mick on 0114 261 7517 and we will sort this out for you.

Drenched with flavour

Of all the coffees on the Pollards menu this is the one that is always in any order that I make. Like a quality single malt scotch whisky this is full of complex flavours. Strong and full bodied without any bitterness this coffee is absolutely delicious and when your mug is empty you will pour yourself another so you can enjoy it all over again.

Having been to India on a number of occasions I used to drink coffee made from Malabar beans a lot. However back in the UK I have been a regular consumer of Pollards Italian blend. I recently bought the Monsson Malabar just to try it and I think it will now be my go to coffee. It has a strong deep taste but at the same time very smooth to drink. I prefer my coffee to be full strength and Malabar fits the bill quite nicely.

Best coffee ever

We have been drinking Monsoon Malabar from Pollards for at least 8 years, probably longer. It is my favourite coffee. When we offer it to friends and family they always comment on how delicious it is.
Although it is strong, it has a lovely mellow flavour, and makes a great espresso as well as a fantastic latté.
Excellent service and delivery is fast.

My favourite Pollards Coffee

If I could only order one roast, this would be it. Only thing to be aware of is that the beans are quite oily, so I alternate with Puccini (also fantastic) to keep my machine clean.
