This Araku Valley Arabica blend contains three varieties of Arabica coffees combining 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.
These green unroasted coffee beans are recommended by us for Medium to Dark roasts.

Best Robusta Around!
I am so pleased you provide this Arakua Valley in both Robusta and Arabica blend. The Robusta is a great kick to my espresso blend. I roast it long and slow compared with all of my Arabicas. It comes forth with that corn-nutty, malted, leather, black cherry cordial syrup I expect.
