Blue Tokai Café
It’s a pleasure to watch the beans being roasted with care across the glass partition while working on a hotshot project over a cup of fine coffee, like many regulars who frequent this café do. When Matt Chitharanjan and Namrata Asthana moved to Delhi from Chennai in 2012, they sorely missed the local roasting shops. It struck them that while excellent specialty coffee is grown in India, it is difficult to find any of it being sold domestically. This made them start a roasting company in 2013 where “the coffee we roast is the coffee we like to drink”. The company has 10 varieties of coffee, sourced from South India, and sells through their website, five outlets in Delhi and Mumbai, and a few select retailers.
