The Kaapi Tales

ONLY COFFEE® made its humble beginning on the Chennai –Trichy National Highway at Maduranthagam, 80 kms south of Chennai City in a rented 57 sq.ft shop in September 2009.
We are Pioneers in Establishing a Coffee Shop in Highway.
Being natives of Thanjavur district, two ex insurance employees Srivatsan and Anita sensed the absence of quality South Indian coffee shop on the Chennai – Trichy National Highway. Hence they decided to make the finest Kumbakonam degree coffee in the South Indian traditional style. The result was the birth of ONLY COFFEE®, an authentic South Indian coffee shop on the highway far from the hustle & bustle of the bazaar.

Where tradition is trendy

Navrathri is one of the traditional festivals celebrated every year in a grand manner with religious fervour and piety by lighting earthern lamps on all the nine nights. Pooja items such as lamps, sandal sticks, kumkum and images of deities, to name a few are available at ONLY COFFEE®


ONLY COFFEE®provides coffee and delectable snacks in the stalls at Thiruvaiyaru Music Festival on all the five days. The blend of the finest filter coffee adds to the divinity of the place & music.

More than a coffee shop

Over the period, the relationship between South Indian Coffee making experience and ONLY COFFEE® has grown tremendously in such a way that the company has now gained an expert edge in the art of coffee making. This is evident in every aspect right from

  • Choosing high quality beans very carefully
  • Roasting it to perfection
  • Freshly grounding the beans every time
  • Combining with good quality milk and sugar served in brass tumblers.

The growth of ONLY COFFEE® can be attributed to
