Leo Coffee Evolution


Leo Coffee was founded in 1910 by PRK Nadar, the enterprising pioneer in coffee plantations and a legendary figure who gave the coffee-loving South Indians the gift of Leo Coffee. He set exceedingly high standards for cultivation and worked tirelessly with a dedicated team of skilled growers to ensure those high standards are implemented and maintained. He instilled a great sense of commitment and responsibility in them.

Later, his son PRK Bhaskaran took over the reins, armed with expansive knowledge, steadfast dedication and passionate efforts just as his father. PRK Bhaskaran a perfect chip of the old block, carried on with the legacy passed on by his father and strived to make Leo the perfect coffee with unparalleled flavour and consistent quality. 

The traditional value around which the corporate philosophy is woven is followed even today by PRK Bhaskaran's son B.Srinivasan and grandson Venu Srinivasan. they have picked up all the nuances of cultivation, selective picking, processing, and blending. they continue to conserve and maintain the legacy passed on to them with unfaltering dedication and the results of such passionate efforts can be seen in every single bean.

  1. I have grown up drinking Leo Coffee ! I am 60 years old now and originally from Mylapore, where my grandparents & parents would buy the coffee beans at Leo Coffee's outlet at South Mada Street.
    My day is perfect when it starts with the aroma of pure filter coffee without chicory.
    Of late I have seen the quality of coffee powder slipping. I mostly buy from Leo's Village Road outlet at Nungambakkam, Chennai - 600034. The quality of roasting is not correct ! It is yielding a blackish tinge ! Thete is no flavour now !
    The fineness of the powder is also improper ! Often the coffee doesnt percolate down ! The hot water just sits on the powder, which becomes tacky and clayey preventing downward movement of the water.
    It is hoped that Leo Coffee will look into these quality issues with urgency !
