Coffee isn't just a beverage; it's a whole other feeling. Countless people across the world swear by a shot of coffee early in the morning to awaken their senses. The flavour of the coffee depends upon the kind of coffee grounds being used in the making of the brew. There are many kinds of coffees available all over the world. Araku coffee is the most well-known one in India - a variety that has recently also received the prestigious Geographical Indication (GI) tag.
