Premium Specialty Coffee

The multitude of Indian specialty coffee

The term specialty coffee or gourmet coffee, was first introduced in 1974 by Ema Knuset, as a way to describe coffee beans of superior quality with unmatched flavor and aroma. Quantified through a coffee scoring system, the Q scale, coffee beans can only be classified as gourmet when scoring above 80 on the 100 points scale.

At Eteakol, specialty coffee encompasses much more than a score. Our aim is to list a multitude of these rare coffees originating from different regions of the Indian subcontinent from producers dedicated to their craft. When you buy gourmet coffee on Eteakol, you buy from producers focusing on growing a superior quality coffee that is sustainable and ethical.
