DISCOVER OUR JOURNEY
PASSIONATE HUMAN CHAIN
Since 2001, our farmers, coffee and agricultural experts have worked together to create this unique distribution model in the coffee world: a new form of social enterprise that is committed to delivering shared value, where the business does well while also doing good for the community.
FULLY INTEGRATED COFFEE
Araku has been created by the coming together of international coffee experts and the farmers of our cooperative. Together, they have made this journey possible: creating the first fully integrated value chain of coffee.
Araku coffee is a pure arabica with a rare aromatic profile combining smoothness, balance and roundness. It is created by our French coffeeologist Hippolyte Courty, guaranteeing utmost quality at each step, from the plantation to the cup.EXPLORE OUR COFFEES
Araku coffee is grown in ancestral terroirs located on the highlands of the Araku Valley, in the Eastern Ghats of India. Exclusively grown in our ecologically farmed coffee plantations, Araku is certified organic, grown in micro-lots and selectively harvested to fully express the richness of its unique character.
STRAIGHT FROM OUR
FARM TO YOUR CUP
As the result of the work of passionate men and women from our farmers to consumers, Araku is the first 100% organic single-origin coffee from India whose journey from the coffee plant to your cup bypasses the middle men.
