A PERFECT BLEND OF ENTERPRISE AND COMMITMENT
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. And in span of 25 years, Nadar expanded his estates to over 1000 acres in the Palani Hills, Western Ghats and set up complete coffee processing and curing facilities. 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.
COFFEE – AN UPHILL TASK
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. Driven by his exceptional commitment and passion, he even walked up the hill to oversee operations – coffee cultivation was never an ‘uphill task’ for him.
Leo Coffee is a family run concern with an excellent combination of unflinching commitment to quality and enterprise. Has a very rich heritage and traditional values around which the corporate philosophy is woven. Today, PRK Bhaskaran’s son B.Srinivasan and grandson Venu Srinivasan, 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.
