When we moved to Delhi in 2012, gone were the local roasting shops we had frequented in Chennai. While the beans they provided may not have been terribly fresh, or even all that flavorful, they at least made a drinkable cup of coffee. In Delhi, we found our options were limited to pre-ground mass produced coffee or overpriced, imported beans that were roasted months ago.
Despite the fact that India grows specialty coffee that could compete with just about any in the world, it is surprisingly difficult to find any of it sold domestically. Figuring that there were many others like us who would enjoy a good cup of freshly roasted coffee, we decided to start Blue Tokai Coffee. Our mission is simple: introduce our customers to the estates we buy our great tasting coffees from, roast the beans with care, order by order, and ship them out to customers the next day. The coffee we roast is the coffee we like to drink. And we hope you like it too.
