Lot GEMS 5161: Together in Excellence: Ripe orange, syrupy, almond, dark chocolate, raisin

Palaki Lakku is a revered name among Gems of Araku veterans, whose coffee has made it to seasons’ best since its debut in 2022. Two years on, his mastery in cultivating specialty coffee has only deepened and he attributes this success to the art of time management.

During the harvest season, Lakku meticulously selects crimson red cherries, carefully sorting and preparing them ahead of procurement. This strategic approach to managing time permeates every aspect of coffee cultivation - from precise mulching to timely harvest. He also acknowledges that his success would be incomplete without the discerning appreciation of quality coffee buyers & global coffee enthusiasts.

Lakku envisions a future where his children not only inherit his farm but also his legacy of delivering exceptional coffee. GEMS 5161 tantalizes the senses with notes of butterscotch, orange peel, dates and caramel, enveloped in a luxurious syrupy texture.
