Know your coffee

ARAKU Grand Reserve is 100% Arabica

And easily one of our most refined offerings. It’s distinguished by its silky, full-bodied mouthfeel, intense flavours and just a touch of acidity. It’s drawn from the highest and finest plots – the Grand Cru – among our coffees. It makes for a bold cup that can be savoured black or with a splash of milk.

Natural & Washed


Natural Process

Natural process, which yields our Signature, Grand Reserve, High Altitude and Micro Climate coffees. In the natural coffee process, the full cherry is dried prior to de-pulping. Natural processed coffee will taste fruitier and have a heavier body as the drying coffee beans absorb some of the sugars from the surrounding fruit.


Honey Process

Pulp-sundried or honey coffee is an eco-friendly process as it generates very little solid and liquid waste. The fruity and sweet notes of ARAKU’s Selection and High Altitude blends are due to the presence of mucilage in the honey-processed coffee. Here, the coffee skin is removed and the coffee is de-pulped to varying degrees but no mucilage is removed and it is sent to the drying yard. The honey process is a rare and unique system that is almost exclusively used by specialty coffee producers as it is simple, affordable and intuitive.



Washed Process

Early Harvest is a washed coffee — these coffees are prized for their clarity and vibrant notes. The coffee cherries go through the Columbian Penagos pulper that removes the sticky mucilage surrounding the coffee seeds, and the coffee is left to ferment for 18-24 hours. Then the coffee is washed in fresh water and sent to the drying yard — removing the cherry prior to drying allows the bean’s intrinsic flavours to really shine. In the semi-washed process, which is also used for ARAKU’s Signature blend, some of the mucilage remains and after fermentation, the beans are sent to the drying yard. The mucilage lends mild sweet and fruit notes to the semi-washed coffee.

Grand Reserve is sourced primarily from Kuthangi Thadiput in Araku, Andhra Pradesh, which is home to roughly 66 farmer families. Ancient terroir offers ideal conditions for growing coffee, picture very rocky to scree soils, with medium to big stones. The coffee grows under silver oak shade with mango and jackfruit trees interspersed.

Farmer Diary
Badnaini Subadramma and Sombabu



Badnaini Subadramma and Sombabu from Kuthangi Thadiput are a tight knit family of five, their children – two sons and a daughter – receive primary education. They’ve taken a keen interest in regenerative agricultural practices taught by volunteers of the Naandi Foundation, which has helped them expand their yield year on year. By cutting out middlemen and receiving fair prices –  for coffee, turmeric, pepper, pulses and millets – they’ve been able to invest in heirloom gold jewellery as well as plots of land.

One of the best brews

This coffee is amazing. Really like this. I first drank it from their Paris shop. Now I am in India and I am ordering it online. Super good coffee.

Arjun Siva
Good, but not great

This is nice - i didnt get the fruity feel that people seem to be talking about in the reviews .I tried with water at 92, 90 and even 88 degrees C water, but reducing the temp didnt help either. It left me wanting just a bit more.
