Breakfast at 4 pm
Cuppa Joe is the new coffee shop on the block with unique offerings

Mamta Lulla

Caffeine addicts, rejoice. There’s a new addition to the coffee herd. In a market crowded with both indigenous coffee shops and those from different parts of the world, the Choksi brothers, Vardhaman and Rushabh, felt there was space for another and thus was born Cuppa Joe. “We both had this urge to start something creative, like when we started Escobar,” says Vardhaman.

The month-old coffee shop in Mumbai competes with giants such as Café Coffee Day and Costa Coffee next door with unique beverages like butter beer and marshmallow mocha, along with “fresh food” like pastas and paninis. The newbie also offers choices of soy and skimmed milk and all-day breakfast to its customers. With an initial investment of around ₹1 crore, the owners are hoping to achieve operational breakeven in four months. Cuppa Joe or Ordinary Joe? Only time will tell.
