Coffee Day group started its operations in 1993 through its subsidiary Coffee Day Global Limited. We operate a highly optimized and vertically integrated coffee business which ranges from procuring, processing and roasting of coffee beans to retailing of coffee products across various formats. We source our coffees from thousands of small coffee planters. They and the many plantation workers have truly made us who we are today and we're glad to be a part of their lives.
CAFÉ COFFEE DAY
Café Coffee Day is a coffee shop for the young and the young at heart. We are part of Coffee Day Global Limited. The first café opened in 1996 on Brigade Road in Bengaluru, India. A smart, simple space that they could call their own for a while… sit down, talk and listen to conversations, hold short meetings or even have a lot of fun… all over steaming cups of coffee. It's been an exciting journey since then, becoming the largest organized retail café chain in the country – in terms of number of café outlets. What's more if your travels take you to Vienna, Austria or the Czech Republic, do stop by at Café Coffee Day for the taste of a blend from home.
Our coffees, smoothies, snacks, merchandise and more-appeals to the palates of our customers, and we still surprise them by launching signature products like the Devil’s Own, Iced Eskimo and Crunchy Frappe.
In 2010, we launched Coffee Day Lounge, which expanded our customer base, offering a new kind of space—directed at affluent customers who need a space not just to hang out, but also occasionally to network. With a menu that’s expanded to offer more niche methods of coffee brewing, exotic teas, elements of mixology (like our coffeetinis), and international cuisine to satisfy any kind of craving.
In 2009, we targeted the coffee aficionado with the first Coffee Day Square in Bengaluru. This premium café offers single origin coffees, boutique brewing systems, and caters to the well-travelled coffee connoisseur. These stores are present in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai. The menu offers international and local single origin coffees, fine dining options and more.
Coffee Day Xpress is an on-the-go food and beverages kiosk situated at convenient locations, such as large corporate campuses, office buildings, hospitals, metro and railways stations. Our Xpress format was launched in February 2003.
Our first international café opened in Vienna in 2005. We also have cafés in the Czech Republic and Malaysia.
COFFEE DAY BEVERAGES
Going one step further, our vending business brings coffee to ever more convenient locations—your home or office. An important part of our vertically integrated business model, we have developed vending machines using in-house technology that dispenses hot coffee as well as teas of different flavours.
We have developed two types of coffee vending machines: Sienna, a semi automatic machine which is used at our café chain; and Celesta, a fully automatic coffee vending machine which is currently deployed at multiple client locations across the country. Our vending machines are equipped to prepare fresh milk coffee and provide our customers with an authentic experience of freshly brewed coffee. Both machines are available against a deposit, with regular service and maintenance support. Our customers primarily include corporate clients in the IT/ITES, financial, telecom and manufacturing sectors among others.
COFFEE DAY FRESH & GROUND
Fresh & Ground (F&G) serves fresh and branded coffee beans and powder to customers through 424 F&G outlets, the majority of which are owned and operated by us across South India and Maharashtra.
We started serving coffee through F&G outlets in 1995 and currently offer over 25 exclusive coffee blends. We have also introduced a specialised coffee machine 'Kaapi Guru' for our F&G business, which is used by large number of small restaurants and eateries in South India.
COFFEE DAY EXPORTS
To ensure we're providing the best possible coffee—in compliance with our high quality standards—we control purchasing, roasting, packaging, and distribution of coffee used in each of our businesses. We purchase coffee beans from three coffee-producing regions in Karnataka—Hassan, Chikmagalur and Coorg—and roast them to our exacting standards for our many blends and single origin coffees.
We've contracted a number of agents to source coffee beans from these areas and bring them to our curing facilities. The coffee is cured in the Hassan and Chikmagalur plants, both of which are equipped with machinery, including colour-sorting facilities for cleaning and sorting coffee beans.
We export cured coffee to Europe, Middle East and Japan.
