Characteristics of Monsooned Coffee
The monsooning of the Old Java coffee beans may continue for as long as three years, resulting in a strengthening of the coffee's taste and a weakening of its acidity as well as a distinct color change from the original green tint of the coffee beans to a light brown color.
Old Java coffee is a mature coffee with a taste intended to mimic the taste of the original Java coffee that was inadvertently aged in the hulls of ships traveling to Europe in the 1700s and 1800s. Read more about it in the World's Best History of Coffee.
