Know your coffee

ARAKU Microlot 02.23 is 100% Arabica

It's one of the most brilliant coffees to be born out of regenerative agriculture. The flavour reflects the nutrient-rich soil. It boasts of a silky-rich body, clean and sweet, lingering aftertaste.

This coffee enjoys a 34-day drying period, during which it's evenly sun-dried on raised coffee beds. It’s very well-suited for manual brewing, especially French Press and AeroPress.

Process

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.

Not as expected

This one is not as as much as it is explained like honey, floral, etc. It's just another flat coffee.

Araku Fan Club

Am surely a fan of the fantastic Coffees from Araku, but on trying the microlot 02.23 I wasn't impressed.
Maybe I was expecting too much, but there's certainly flavor and punch missing.
None the less, I love Araku and will look forward to newer varieties in the future.

Didn't deliver as per my expectations

This coffee is great if you are planning to give up coffee. Seriously, i had super high expectations from a coffee with a high cupping score. When i cupped it , i could only taste mint. But not your usual mint, it was taste of dried mint leaves partially gone bad. After that i tried to make prepare it with different methods ~ several well extracted espresso shots, different V60 recipes etc. Today i tried the aeropress even ~ 2021 winning recipe. Had the right water temperature, dosage, etc. All i can taste is the try mint leaves and some amla. If this is the best, then coffee is over for me.
