Ten-Second Takeaway

Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters have opened their very own roastery, and we love it. Here, you can take a look at how your coffee’s roasted and have them pack you a fresh batch while you sit in the café and enjoy a cuppa.

What’s Blue Tokai?

Blue Tokai is a coffee roasting company that sources the freshest of specialty coffee beans from estates across India, roasts them per order, and delivers it the very next day.

‘Tokai’ is the ancient Malabari word for a peacock tail. The name signifies the importance of the Malabar region, where the British set up coffee estates and apparently, spotted a peacock for the first time.

Essentially a place where they roast and pack coffees, the roastery also has a café area where you can sit and enjoy their special brews.

The folks here are passionate about their coffee and upon their recommendation, we tried the Flat White, Cortado {a double shot of espresso with textured milk}, and Pourover —and we can see ourselves going back for all of them.

Aside from these, their selection of coffees include Chili Cinnamon Mocha, Coffee Tonic {a mix of tonic + espresso}, and Nitro Coffee {a nitrogen infused cold brew black coffee}!

…And Good Food Too

After much testing and trying, Blue Tokai has now finalised its food menu, which is not too extensive, but sounds so damn good! The savouries include a No Leaf Salad {made with warm garlic-roasted pumpkin, herbed masoor dal, kaffir lime dressing, and goats cheese}, Open-Faced Sandwich {rosemary-onion jam, green apple, scarmoza, and arugula}, and Bacon and Cheddar Waffle.

Want something sweet to go with your coffee? They’ve got Ragi Pancakes {with luscious fillings}, Mawa Cupcake, Rustom’s Caramel Custard, Nutella Cookies, and more.

PS: If you’re located within six kilometres of the roastery, you can have your coffee delivered to you too!
