History Behind The Coffee Museum:
The idea of establishing a coffee museum in Araku Valley was first thought by Prakash Rao and he established it. In 1930, he set up a general catering service here, which was initially only for tourists. Realizing the uniqueness of the coffee produced in the Araku Valley, he began to promote Araku Coffee worldwide. At that time Arabica Coffee was grown in different parts of India as opposed to Robusta Coffee. Eventually his highlighting process succeeded and in 1954 he was able to open a coffee house with a coffee museum. Recently this coffee paradise was only open to foreign delegates and coffee traders but fortunately now it is open to everyone.
