The Region

Pearl Estate is located near the Javali region in Chikmagalur at an elevation of 975 - 1,220masl. The estate is nestled in the misty valleys of the Western Ghats, southern India. This region is considered as one the best places in India to grow specialty coffees due to the mountainous terrain, rich soils and tropical climate . Mr. Ravindra who owns the estate is an enthusiastic grower with a notable drive for excellence.

The Process

Monsooned Malabar is a dry processed coffee that has been exposed post drying to 3 to 4 months of moisture from the monsoon winds and rain, historically at the port of Malabar. The process is designed to mimmick the exposure the coffee would have received whislt in transit on clippers in transit to Europe. The process swells and makes the bean turn a unique pale colour. At specialist drying yards, with raking, turning and ventilating, this process can be well managed and give consistency to the monsoon profile flavours and profile of caramel and syrupy body associated with this process.
