The story of Kaveri Coffee Works is a very personal one.
Three years ago, when my first child, Neel, was born, my life’s priorities and perspective changed completely. Nothing in life prepares you for becoming a mother. What surprised me the most was the shift in my identity from being an independent, free-spirited, gregarious individual to having my entire time, energy, emotions, and plans bound to another human being, and that too one so tiny and totally dependent on me!
I found it really challenging to balance the needs of my family with my own professional aspirations. I wanted a fulfilling life doing meaningful work that fed my soul. It became clear to me that this could not be achieved with a regular 9-to-5 job. The time had come to turn that entrepreneurial dream into a reality. So I quit my job early last year and started exploring different business ideas.
