Nangoo – Nangoo Coffee


About Us:

नंगू  adjective

nang · oo | naked, nude, undressed.

We bring traceable, high quality and deliciously roasted specialty coffee to your doorstep, by shortening the supply chain as much as possible. As our name suggests, we insist on transparency and traceability, and believe that you—our coffee-conscious consumers—should have complete knowledge of what you drink.

Our approach is collaborative: we pay our farm partners an average of 2.5x above market price for a specialized lot of coffee, enabling an equitable supply chain. As a happy result, they are free to experiment more with their crop, growing coffees that govern a dynamic flavour profile once brewed.

Nangoo Coffee, while fiercely local, is an amalgamation of our journey in the coffee world. Now, we share that journey with you, to explore the intricacies of freshly roasted, Indian specialty coffee.


Varun Gupta
Founder & Managing Partner

Varun’s first encounter with coffee at age 11 was one for the books. A potent combination of espresso, ice cream and Thums Up made for his first introduction to what we now fondly refer to as liquid gold. After a 12-hour period of being positively wired, his unending love affair with coffee was cemented.

While studying fine arts at university in the UK, Varun was initiated into the world of specialty coffee and third wave coffee culture. After receiving his SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) barista accreditation, he spent a summer researching specialty coffee consumption culture in Bolivia and working at a solar roasting coffee company in Peru. With experience at the cupping lab at the World Barista Championships and a roastery in Goa, Varun now runs Nangoo Coffee.
