About the growers

The Araku valley is located in the Eastern Ghats of Andhra Pradesh region of India and is populated by some of the oldest indigenous tribes in India. Traditionally a very poor area, the growing of high quality specialty coffee was introduced to the area (alongside improved education and help in setting up a cooperative) by the Nandi foundation as a means to try and improve the incomes of the local people. The result of all this work is that they now have 11000 members in the Araku valley region and within the organisation women are on the board of directors and receive equal pay. They also receive around four times the price for their coffee than they previously did and there is around 13000 acres of land being farmed under organic and biodynamic practices.
