It is India’s largest café chain and it is here that the story of Café Coffee Day began.
A division of India’s largest coffee conglomerate - Coffee Day Global Limited (CDGL), Café Coffee Day (CCD) is a pioneer in India, having established India’s largest, and arguably most preferred café chain.
CCD comes from a rich 140-year heritage in the business of growing coffee. Its story began in Chikmagalur, a town South India, known as the birthplace of coffee in India. It was here that a traditional family owned a few coffee estates which yielded rich coffee beans. The family’s expertise operating coffee plantations since 1875, and exquisite coffee grown here, coupled with and a deep understanding of the coffee business helped them build a hugely successful coffee empire which culminated in the formation of CDGL in 1993.
Café Coffee Day - India
Sensing that the urban youth were seeking a fun and relaxed space to hangout, CCD pioneered India’s café culture, opening its first outlet in Bengaluru in 1996. CCD then embarked on a dynamic journey, carving a distinct brand identity and eventually becoming an iconic space for young people across the nation. While primarily targeting the youth, our cafés have also become a place the young-at- heart love to frequent.
CCD now has the largest footprint of multi-format cafés in India with more than 1600 cafés across 240+ cities. Now, CCD is going global, setting up cafés in Austria, Egypt, the Czech Republic and Malaysia.
Sustainably Grown Coffee
CDGL’s coffee has always been shade-grown. This creates and sustains a wonderfully earth-friendly eco-system. Our estates are home to a variety of birds and wildlife and to this day, we remain committed to the preservation and development of not just the local wildlife but also the and communities that work and live in and around our estates.
