According to news reports, Mumbai-based The Indian Bean, the online coffee store, which sells gourmet coffee produced in the estates of Coorg in Karnataka and Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu, is looking at selling its products across India and is tying up with logistics companies to facilitate its expansion plans.
The company has been selling premium and grounded coffee powder in Mumbai only to date, offering a free delivery service. From July, it plans to spread to cities like Delhi, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Bhopal and Indore.
Launched in October 2012, the online stores’ focus is only on single-estate filter coffee produce. Speaking to the press, Kunal Ross, Founder and MD, The Indian Bean, said, “A great quantity of good coffee is produced in India but most of it is exported and we are left with secondary quality produce. And this motivated us to launch a niche portal, which will cater to the coffee aficionados.
