Coffee First

Necessity is the mother of all inventions and what originated as an idea to bring coffee as a convenient and affordable product, led to the foundation of Coffee First. It's all about premium coffee, that you get on-the-go, and at an affordable price so you can fill your heart to the brim!

The name says it all, doesn't it? I got hooked to this brand the moment I heard the name. That was it. I knew I had to be a part of it.

Have you ever been to a café, loved the coffee but decided to settle on just one cup, as the other one would have burnt a hole in your pocket? Been there right? Guess we all have.

Coffee First's core team is a group of passionate coffee connoisseurs from different nuances of the coffee journey. The team - Rahul Arun, a Coffee Farmer; Murali Menon, a green coffee trader for 25+ years and Geetu Mohnani, that's me, a Barista Champion. We ensure there are no middlemen involved in procuring coffee, and this helps us get the best coffee from India and Colombia, where the flavors are highlighted by roasting it under direct supervision and curating a menu that suits the Indian palette. For us, coffee is core to our passion and it reflects in the way we market this dream of Coffee First.

We opened our door as a Grab-and-Go Cafe in October 2019, to the Silicon Valley of India, a.k.a. Bengaluru and as cliched as it sounds, we started this in a Tech Park! Our Cappuccinos, Piccolo Lattes and Cold Brews are very hit from the word go! We immediately got into the groove and got a pulse of our customers' needs and offered two blends at the cafe at all times- Svara (our blend of Indian origin coffees) and Armonia (our blend of Colombian and Indian coffees). You can check them out and buy them here - www.coffeefirst.in and on Amazon too. Svara, being a medium dark roast, goes best with milk in drinks like filter coffee, cappuccino or an iced latte; Armonia is for the ones who savour an early morning Pour Over or Cold Brew to soothe your mind, body and soul!

Why is Coffee First different you ask? Well, owning coffee farms and using Fully Automatic Swiss Machines eliminates middlemen and helps us procure good coffee and having a good Barista to brew your coffee consistently each time is what sets us apart. With these features, the bi-product is affordability, which helps you buy an Espresso, which is considered a lifestyle product, for as low as INR 60 and a Cold Coffee at INR 100. Our idea is to increase the per capita coffee consumption of India from 4 cups/year, as compared to 422 in the US, to 100 cups/year by 2025.

With options like pre-ordering, owning the delivery model, transparent sourcing of coffee beans, use of all natural ingredients and automation, we have seen repeat customers as they savor a perfect blend which we have on offer each day!

Coffee First – that’s our life and business motto!
