Harvested from coffee terroirs shaded by pepper entwined silver oak trees and nurtured by well aerated rocky soils. Terroir characterised by lots of rocks, and highest percentage of silver oak trees. A blend of washed and natural coffees.
As COVID-19 raged on across the country this summer, it inevitably reached farmers in Araku Valley, Andhra Pradesh. Through awareness, testing, treatment and vaccination drives, held in association with Naandi Foundation, Nice Foundation, British Asian Trust and Mahindra & Mahindra, we were able to mitigate some of the more sinister outcomes of COVID-19. The worst is hopefully behind us. As we look towards the future, we do so with immense gratitude for all our healthcare workers. This, right here, is our humble tribute so that we may never forget their contribution.
Araku Signature symbolizes the aromatic balance and roundness that so defines our coffees and declares boldly their speciality status.
Signature is a coffee for everyone with its exquisite, bold character and, for the discerning palate, there is a delicate resemblance to fine tea.
The long and clean aftertaste remains sweet and fresh with a mild bitterness.
You can brew Signature with all equipment but we recommend Drip Filters, French Press or ARAKU Moka pots.
This coffee’s origin is from well-manicured "coffee gardens" in lower, well shaded plots near the villages. Its balance comes from that extra, almost daily attention the coffee bushes get year round.
Growing under silver oaks shade, in GANJAIGUDA village, my coffee cherries are nice and big, thanks to the altitude, the richness of my plot soil and biodiverse culture. Our coffee gets very good grades in tastings thanks to its nice sweetness.
