My favorite coffee beans I’ve ever used. I look forward every bag that shows up on my porch. A very smooth blend of coffee, always makes me look forward to my morning cup of coffee!
Lighter roast than I expected and I was ready for that but didn't know it! Full flavor and smooth taste.
I am the ultimate coffee snob -- nope, I never drink coffee out... prefer my own. Strictly Monsoon coffee the past several years - earthy, smokey, "cowboy" coffee, smooth and zero bitterness. I've researched, ordered and enjoyed many brands! But for me, this Good Brother's version stood out -- it is far superior to them all. For the first time, after decades of moving around from roaster to roaster, I'm using a *SUBSCRIPTION* so I never run out. Yup, that good.
Firstly, the coffee is much better than my attempt at Latte Art! Lol....However, the coffee itself is amazing! Its great as a straight shot and works very well with milk as well! I taste notes of Malt, and a kinda salty flavor along with kind of leather notes! It's a very unique tasting coffee but still traditional enough to please a myriad of pallets!
This is phenomenal is a ristretto. I recommend a 1: 1.5 ratio and a shot time of about 30 secs. It's complex, creamy, and classic with an edge. It's what an espresso shot should be, and then more. This is not for light roast lovers. I'm not one of those, although I am open to all flavors and enjoy them. But this one is bold, dark-ish, and thick. Highly recommend!

Immediately opening the fresh roasted bag of IMM, I was transported to the southern Malabar Coast of Kerala about to board a trade goods vessel in 1879. Whole crops of the finest cherry coffee surround me in preparation for todays barbecue roast. The temptation to drink results was unbearable, but I had to resist. I knew the journey of these beans had just begun. Four months later of exposing the adolescent beans to monsoon winds and rain, they had aged to perfection. It was time to take the first sip.
Tasting notes: Salt, Caramel, Seagull squawks & Ocean Waves
Would I recommend this coffee?
Yes. There is nothing more fulfilling than telling people you only drink Indian Monsoon Malabar beans.

Love this bean! It’s syrupy and delicious!!
The first Indian coffee I tried, and it was very good. Really am enjoying it.
Wonderful as straight shots or in milk drinks. So far, this is my favorite!
I made the mistake of opening the first bag of Good Bros Indian Monsoon last night -- the smell from the bag stuck in my head, and I woke up WAAAAY too early to try a first cup! WOWZA, it exceeded expectations -- for a gal that has an obsession with monsoon coffees, this would qualify as the best I've had. Smokey, "forest-y" (is that a word?) -- like what I think Cowboy Coffee would taste like. Unlike any other coffee I've had in life.... monsooned coffee has altered what I expect coffee to be, and Good Brothers: YOU NAILED IT and then some. Off to subscribe and save, every morning needs to start with this exact coffee!!!!
Great taste and super fresh
Excellent flavor and Crema
Phenomenal, hints of saltiness that cut through milk with a rich mocha body. Good hot or cold.
I just finished my first bag and was surprised how much I enjoyed the taste! The saltiness was subtle and not overdone. I will definitely buy this again.
I look forward to the first of every month because that’s when I get my coffee beans of monsoon Malabar. My favorite coffee I’ve ever had! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I love the freshness of the coffee beans. The random coffee bean delivery is amazing.
This is by far is one of my favorite coffees ! Everything about it is great. Whether you drink it with milk or espresso alone. Can't go wrong with this choice!
Very good sweetness. Medium body. Good finish. It it the the richness aspect I have not been able to obtain. Still searching for the right recipe.
It was a turnip instead of a tulip. Sorry for the botched art. This batch didn’t seem to have the same roasting profile I had from previous orders. Less crema, less pronounced flavors. Not as fresh. But overall better than most cafes. Hope the next batch returns to what I’m accustomed to.
It is salty. The taste is just like sitting on the beach and filled with ocean smell. Very rare and special taste for coffee. Definitely worth a try.
18g dose with a 40g output, WDT and shower screen.
Brew temp: 99C
Grinder: La-Cimbali JR
Rancilio Slivia with 20g IMS basket.
Excellent crema with very low bitterness and slight acidity.Good body and the saltiness is noticeable. Overall a very interesting coffee, a nice change from my casual Star-B French Roast. When I got the bean the roast was 1 week old.
Great coffee, can't wait for my next order!
Love the smell and the taste is amazing!
Everyone loved it!
My favorite beans from goodbrotherscoffee
Easy to dial in. Consistently great tasting shots with loads of crema. Used to get Liquid Amber, but the oily beans created issues with my grinder after a while.
Very rich and bright flavors in espresso shots with a note of salt at finish. Works with milk or straight up.
Super fresh. It was easing to identify the proper grind setting just by looking at the beans. The crema was brilliant. The fast profile.. on point
Very good coffee that coffee is unique definitely you can taste salty notes and the crema is a lot I recommend
By far one of our favorites! Sold by one of our favorite companies! Thank you Good Brothers for the superb customer service!
We love this blend, we take pride in dialing our expresso machine to extract the decadent flavors in these beans, it is the tastiest expresso I have ever had - and I am a coffee guy - I am talking better than Panther coffee, Blue bottle, and even Lá Colombe Coffee. These are major specialty coffee roasters. The crema on this is like no other, great for your daily expresso or a weekend, machiatto, latte, or cappuccino. Have fun and impress your guests with the amazing story behind good brothers fresh to order roaring process and fair trade coffee sourcing. It's an amazing company to support and a great product to have at home, you'll never want to run out! We love it, hope you do as well!
It’s really creamy and has a very good consistency body.
Rich crema and flavor.
Not as dark as I’m accustomed to but great tasting nonetheless.
Fresh beans, fast delivery, and outstanding customer support.
I have tried various other brand. Always in a coming back to Good Brothers.
I am a beginner at brewing espresso with an espresso machine. So, every time I brew an espresso, I get nervous. When brewing espresso with Good Brothers coffee beans, however, I am more excited than nervous. This is because I know that the espresso extraction goes very well without a lot of dial-in when I use Good Brothers coffee beans. Good Brothers coffee beans are very well roasted and very fresh. I was very satisfied with ‘Espresso Blend’ coffee beans which I ordered a few weeks ago. So, a few days ago I ordered ‘India Monsooned Malabar’ coffee beans which are highly recommended by many people. Today I am very happy to pull a beautiful and creamy shot with it. Thank you, Good Brothers!
Absolutely loved the taste of this roast so much that I had to come back to it. Great flavor that breaks through the milk and makes my mornings awesome!
I can’t stop buying this one. It’s my go-to. So much creaminess and flavor. Never a disappointment. Love it.
I love Good Brothers coffee! This one has very rich creama.
After trying a few other beans of similar roasts trying to perfect the taste of some espresso drinks I was after, this roast was awesome right off the bat. I took in a recommendation and won’t look back. I’ll be happy to have Good Brothers coffee in my pantry when I want a great tasting cup of coffee. As you can see, the macchiato I have to the left tasted fantastic and is my style of the famous Starbucks variant of a hot Macchiato.
Crema crema forever luv this coffee so fresh
Goodbrotherscoffee is my first choice always.
Amazing bold taste either was a shot or latte. Will be ordering again. BTW, the smell enhances the experience.
Never had a bad experience. Coffee is amazing, customer service is even better!
Super Crema indeed! The aroma and afternotes of earthly spices! Love this particular roast, blends well with the Spanish latte that I love to make. Definitely getting more of it!
Best tasting coffee crema, crema, crema forever!!!
Beans are of great quality, low acid and full of flavor. I highly recommend a membership as its the best way to receive your high quality beans exactly when you are about o run out.
I do not taste the salty flavor from this but is rich syrupy. I like it for expresso more than pour over. I am trying some more beans and I think I am hook on coffee.
Love this company and their products. Customer service is outstanding. Keep up the good work!
Rich, thick, creamy crema! What's not to love?
My favorite coffee beans from goodbrotherscoffee. Love it
This bag of beans was absolutely amazing!! I cannot wait to share more videos about these beans on my TikTok!!
Crema for days! Super syrupy espresso shots. Great for milk based drinks, nice bold flavor!
Delicious, syrupy, and balanced with a slight hint of salt. My favorite about this bean is the heavenly crema!
This is my second order for this coffee as it grew on me the more I drank it the first time. Something about this makes me want to take another sip every time I drink it.
Excellent crema, full body flavors, extremely good as espresso or cappuccino's. Definitely will recommend and buy more! Stay caffinated!
Just starting out on my coffee journey and am loving GB various fresh roasted coffee beans!
Today, I purchased Uganda Bugisu organic beans and can't wait to taste it!
This is my second bag of India Monsooned Malabar. So delicious! Fresh roasted and super fast shipping. Can’t wait to try their other specialties!
I'm still new to home espresso making, but this bean is my favorite thus far.
I too was a little hesitant to try these beans due to the described salt note. Then I remembered my grandfather used to put salt in his coffee. After receiving these beans, all I can say is Wow!! Really good stuff here. It has crema for days and just tastes outstanding. It is the first bean I have had where I enjoy it as an espresso, lungo, coffee, flat white, cappuccino and latte amongst others. It runs the gamut for me. It pairs very well with milk. I am really, really impressed. Well done Good Brothers.
Wasn't absolutely sure I'd like this coffee with the taste note of salt but really liked this coffee. Will want to get this again.
