Araku Valley Heritage India Arabica - Sale

Our multi-temperature Harlequin Roast showcases three varieties of Arabica coffees that combine genes from 5 different subspecies. Unique to India, this taste profile is something you have to try to experience.

India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the coffee blight of 1870, when growers needed to create natural hybrids or switch to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other resistant species such as Timor, Tafarikela and Catimor, and present a unique taste profile as a result. They are grown in a double-tiered shade system. Often inter-cropped with spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, the coffees gain aromatics from the inter-cropping, storage, and handling functions.

India mostly ships its coffee to their Northwest, where Italy accounts for 28% of exports and the rest of Europe consumes almost as much. Indian coffees are one of the secret ingredients of many award-winning Italian coffee blends and espressos.

8 ounce bags, choose whole bean or ground.
