Gems of Araku

Celebrating 15 Years of Excellence

Year after year since 2009, Gems of Araku has curated a collection of exquisite coffees crafted to capture the essence of Araku's unique terroir and rich cultural heritage.

The roots of Araku specialty coffee are deeply & intricately tied to its SOIL. These rich soils, now restored with nourishing nutrients as a result of our regenerative agronomy, ensure coffee cherries are packed with natural sugars. Araku’s bio-diverse farms with multi-tier shade further create a lasting imprint on a sensitive coffee plant, yielding complex flavour profiles in these microlots.

It is this very strength of the regions’ SOIL, combined with the indigenous knowledge and artistry of our tribal farmers that yields truly exceptional coffees each season. The coffees further evolve during in-house processing with carefully crafted steps that bring out the best in the beans.
