Deccan Coffee | Small Batch Roasters
Deccan Coffee is an online coffee store that delivers fresh coffee, every single day. We started 6 years back, when we were in college (as a part time venture, till graduation) delivering fresh roasted arabica coffee to hotels in Bengaluru, Surat & Mysore directly from our farm in Kodagu.
In 2016 we decided to get back to our roots as we realized how much we missed growing, roasting and developing coffee. Our premium quality beans are sourced post meticulous tasting of coffees from over 250 farms across India and abroad. We work towards sustainability, artisan-ship and delicious coffee.
As a coffee company, we believe that coffee is a culture, that good coffee stimulates communication and progress. With Deccan Coffee we seek to sustain this aspect.
