A lot can happen over a cup of coffee and if you ask Indians about their favourite place for having a cup of coffee, the majority will answer Cafe Coffee Day (CCD).
However in recent times, CCD has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. First the founder of CCD, V. G. Siddhartha went missing after writing a letter in which he stated that he had failed as an entrepreneur and he could not take any more pressure.
Soon the news of his demise was received which completely shook the whole nation, especially the employees and loyal customers of CCD. There is no doubt that CCD was not just a place for good coffee but numerous people have an emotional connect with one or more CCD outlets as something special must have happened with them over there.
If we talk in simple words, a number of first dates and many first meetings of arrange marriage partners must have taken place at CCD. Some business partners must have made important decisions in CCD over a cup of coffee and even several business ideas might have taken birth there.
Twitter users have come up with their CCD memories and it’s heartwarming to read them:
