While one-half of The Local Collective loves tea to death like most Brits, the other half lives and breathes coffee. So much, that over the years has procured SIX different options of preparing a cup of Joe every morning. Whilst the traditional hot tea is still synonymous with the United Kingdom, coffee is closing in as the beverage of choice.
This is why when we heard from Veena, founder of Coromandel Coast, we were intrigued. Hailing from Chennai (which is situated on the stunning Coromandel Coast and hence the namesake of the brand), Veena grew up experiencing the old-world charms of the coffee estates, which is etched deeply in her memory. However , since moving to London, she felt compelled to tell the untold stories of her motherland, starting with her fond childhood memories that stemmed from coffee.
