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
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.
Over the period, ONLY COFFEE®has gained an expert edge in the art of coffee making right from
- Choosing high quality beans very carefully
- Roasting it to perfection
- Freshly grounding the beans every time
- Combined with good quality milk and sugar served in brass tumblers.
The growth of ONLY COFFEE®can be attributed to Quality, Hygiene and Service.
While in the initial month there were hardly any customer, a solitary car pulled over and a few
people tasted the coffee soon after a month. The word spread slowly and inspired by the
patronage enjoyed by ONLY COFFEE®
, several Coffee Shops started sprouting out on the
highway to the extent that people now call it a coffee highway !
Within a span of three years, ONLY COFFEE ® became a private limited company and moved its headquarters to a sprawling 8000 sq.ft with a pleasant ambience, ample car parking and clean restrooms.
At ONLY COFFEE® we strive hard to make every customer feel at home. We are passionate about doing everything with the customer on our mind, giving due recognition, taking responsibility for learning continuously and endeavouring to give value for money. ONLY COFFEE ® treasures the hard work of its committed employees who have made this dream possible.
