I still have some Indian Monsooned Malabar AA Gold. They always looked gold,
but they roasted to a normal color. They appear in espresso blends from
reputable sources. Just start out pale yellow or gold, lacking most of the
blue component that makes normal unroasted beans look green.

Guess the eye sees RGB, but the 4-color printing process uses Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow and Black halftone separations. Just the artist's palette? Go figure

Acidential Monsoooned?
