ARAKU Signature is 100% Arabica
It symbolises the aromatic balance and roundness that defines our coffees and declares boldly their speciality status. Signature is a coffee for everyone; it’s full of rich character, and those with a discerning palate might even pick up a delicate resemblance to fine tea. The long and clean aftertaste remains sweet and fresh with a bold finish.
Washed & Natural
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.
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.
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.

Signature is sourced primarily from Ganjaiguda village, in Araku, Andhra Pradesh, which houses roughly 63 farmer families. The coffee grows under silver oak shade and a combination of fruit and forest trees.
The soil is characterised by its colour (dark brown) and its structure (lot of rocks).
Meet Janni Appalakonda & Komalamma
Janni Appalakonda and Komalamma, are a small family of six, nurturing a coffee plot close to their home. Their primary income comes from coffee, and pepper comes a close second. Pepper grows abundantly on silver oak trees that are prominently found in their village, Kuthangi Thadeput. In addition, they also cultivate paddy, turmeric and millets using regenerative agriculture practices.
Love the coffee, I am giving it a 4 star just because I feel it is a bit too expensive.
Tasty and balanced.
I expected a big change while switching from instant to actual coffee. To my surprise, the change was noticeable but also not huge enough. Maybe, because of this coffee I bought, I might not be noticing a change. Or I just don't know a lot about coffee and just don't understand how actual coffee tastes like.
