This rare and unique coffee is inspired by Monsoon Malabar coffee. We sought out an environment in the UK to create a coffee as unique and special, with smooth full ﬂavours and low acidity. We often frequenting the North Norfolk coast so the idea of using the Norfolk salt marshes to create a similar process to Monsoon Malabar. Using a boat house set amongst the Norfolk salt marshes where we hung a test batch of the famous Camocim Estate organic green coffee beans for the duration of the English “monsoon” season!
*These sacks have been stored for six months over the summer to the wet winter season in an atmosphere made humid by seawater seeping through the wood of the boathouse. The resulting coffee has a muted acidity with spicy, smokey chocolate flavours.
These all new 300g reusable tins are sealed and oxygen purged to keep your coffee fresher for longer!

The history of Monsoon Malabar
The origins of Monsoon Malabar date back to the times when the coffee beans were transported by sea from India to Europe in wooden sail boats. The journey could take months in which time the humidity and the sea winds combined to cause the beans to undergo characteristic changes greatly reducing the acidity. Modern transportation reduced the length of this journey and better protected the beans from being exposed to weather and salt air, however this resulted in the coffee lacking the depth and character of the coffee beans previously transported by sail. The solution and to replicate the original “sail boat” coffee was to build large open barns, on the coast of Malabar, in which the coffee sacks are stored, during the monsoon season hence “Monsooned Malibar“. This is the inspiration for our Saltmarsh coffee.
In 1996 entrepreneur Henrique Sloper inherited Fazenda Camocim from his grandfather Olivar Araújo. Olivar was a pioneer in the production of Organic coffee.
Before running the farm Henrique was president of BSCA (Brazil Specialty Coffee Association).
He had one clear goal when he took over the farm; to produce a high quality organic coffee. The farm is now not only growing coffee using organic methods but is now using biodynamic methods. This has better quality, is more resistant to pests and at the same time it enriches the soil and improves the environment.
