Impacts for 2024 Coffee Arrivals

In October of 2023, Houthi fighters in Yemen began targeting commercial shipping vessels in the Red Sea. In January of 2024, the US and 12 allies announced military action against the Houthi attacks. There is a lot behind the scenes right now to keep vessels and crew safe.

Introducing Monsooned Malabar 3.0

The Secret is out! If you've ordered recently you've already received the Triple-A Super Grade. Meet Monsooned Malabar Triple-A Super Grade, the Third Iteration of India’s Most Famous Bean.   While most green coffee importers carry the same grades of Indian beans that were available in the 1980’s, Josuma takes a different approach.
