Panduranga Coffee Founder

Founder Story:

The seeds of this extraordinary journey were sown back in 1938, when our visionary founder, Sri Papanna Setty, embarked on a small-scale coffee enterprise in the picturesque coffee land of Chikmagalur. His perseverance and foresight established a sturdy foundation that allowed succeeding generations to flourish.

The baton was then passed onto his successors, Sri K.P Panduranga Setty and Sri K.P Sathyanarayana Setty. These innovative pioneers blessed the coffee aficionados of southern India with the unique taste and aromatic charm of Panduranga Coffee.

The Pioneer: 

Sri K.P Sathyanarayana Setty, driven by his father's spirit, committed himself to perfecting the blend of Panduranga Coffee, aiming for a matchless flavour profile and consistent quality. Embracing the traditional practices of roasting coffee with charcoal heat and utilizing electric roasters, he initiated the small-scale manufacture of coffee powder. This venture gradually burgeoned, serving both the passionate coffee-drinking community.

Keeping pace with the evolving technology, Sri K.P Sathyanarayana Setty incorporated German Machines into their process in 1970, thereby catalysing the dynamic expansion and progress of the brand. His unflagging diligence has been instrumental in propelling the company's significant growth.

The subsequent generation - his sons Mr Venkatesh, Mr Sridhar and Mr Deepak, and grandson Mr Karthik - stepped into the family enterprise and now spearhead the company's daily operations. Under their guidance, Panduranga Coffee has deepened its engagement in the coffee business - from cultivation, production, transportation, to the ultimate selling of their products to the end consumer.
