    I usually start drinking EH from day 3, interesting tasting the change as it ages, then your in a position to form your own opinion.

    Ummm, yep, Indian Elephant hills and Monsooned Malabar are two different varieties.

    This was an old thread, reborn, and then people started using shorthand in it.

    ...so just to add confusion or help clear it up...

    Currently we have 2 Elephants on offer, one is a monsooned coffee, the other is a washed and large graded one, both from the same great estate.

    I bought some EH AA roasted. Personally I think the taste is equal to my other favourites, Peru and Kenyan. In terms of aftertaste this is easily the best and longest lasting aftertaste I've ever experienced.

    To my preference it's easily strong enough, I go with a 50ml double shot and slightly less milk than normal, 170ml of milk (before frothing). With some of the other beans I'm using 180-190ml of milk so that is the small adjustment I make to get a taste I'm happy with.

    My only caveat is that I find this bean a little bit variable in it's results, somewhere between 10-20% of the time I get a result that is noticably not as good, occasionally a complete dud. I have no idea why this is, with a bean like Peru I get a much more consistent result.

    Thanks Andy - The Monsoon I picked up from the Bay is one moody bean to roast ! The bean quality is great though. I ve been burnt by some bad monsoon beans before.

    I've been roasting Indian monsooned beans of and on for years, one of the easier beans to roast, never a problem.

    Agree Yelta - pretty easy to roast. One of my favourites at the moment.

    Received a bag of this with my Behmor. Really enjoying the flavour. All I could say is it's very smooth !

    Agreed with most of the posts so far. I have both the monsooned and the 'regular' and love the monsooned as straight espresso or a small machiato. However I have roasted the 'regular' Indian Elephant Hills in my Behmor and found it to lack a little oomph and very little aroma (when compared to Peru and the Nicaraguan Honey).

    What profile are people using on their Behmor?

    I've been going with the standard... 200. P1... first crack... go to manual with the P2. Stop before second crack.
    Nice to blend with and not bad on its own.

    Do you wait for first hint of second or know the timing on second crack/use the Rosetta stone feature?

    I really like this coffee. Amazing crema.
    Very distinctive taste and reminds me a lot of what I like about Genovese's Super Brazil.
    Looking forward to blending it with the Elephant Hills AA.
