This coffee was borne of age old tradition. When wooden ships sailed from India to Europe carrying bright green coffee beans, the humid air below deck left the beans a golden yellow when they arrived.

The beans are exposed to the humid air of the Arabian Sea during monsoon season to replicate the process their ancestors underwent and recreate that smooth flavor.
