Earlier, it made its debut in Paris by retailing at the brand’s boutique on the iconic Rue de Bretagne – Marais and the finest gourmet stores in France.

Elaborating on the brand’s journey and business model, Manoj Kumar, chief executive officer, Naandi, and co-founder, Araku Coffee said, “By retailing in Paris with a flagship store in the Marais region and winning best coffee awards in France, we have started rewriting history for the Adivasi farmers, the Araku region, Indian coffee, and social entrepreneurship.”  

Araku is grown in the world’s largest certified organic plantations, in micro-lots and selectively harvested to fully express the richness of its unique character. Combining smoothness, balance, and roundness, Araku coffee is pure Arabica, with a rare aromatic profile and is certified as an organic fair-trade product.

The brand has been developed by an international panel of experts, including agriculturist David Hogg, French coffeeologist Hippolyte Courty and coffee specialist Sherri Johns.

Courty, one of the top coffee experts in France, uses his know-how of terroirs, coffee and wine to participate in each step of the seed-to-cup process. In fact, the coffee plantations are managed according to the principles of terroir – like a vineyard – to manually craft an international-grade award-winning coffee.
