Coffee from Araku Valley (Andhra Pradesh)

Home to colourful parrots, the Araku Valley is situated in the Eastern Ghats of northern Andhra Pradesh and southern Orissa. The development of coffee plantations here is more recent, and has been a boon to the tribal populations here, since it has provided them with a viable alternative to their traditional methods of shifting cultivation. Coffee from Araku Valley is characterised by medium body, medium to sharp acidity and intense aroma with spicy notes.
