About This Coffee
Coffee was introduced to Araku in the early 1900’s from neighbouring Pamuleru Valley. Previously, it was an area that used slash and burn deforestation techniques and had reduced the land to semi wasteland and with no traditional knowledge of how to grow coffee; production was low and of poor quality.
In 2007, through the help of the Speciality Coffee Association, the cooperative has managed to significantly increase the quality and quantity of coffee grown, to what can recognisably be seen as Indian speciality coffee, and an equisutley beautiful one at that!
Coffee is chosen when the cherry is deep crimson red from a small group of farmers contributing to the mandal. Dried on a mixture of raised beds and solar mechanical facilities, cherries are covered at night with fine cloth to protect from any additional moisture. The result? An exceptional coffee that is beautifully aromatic.
