The ‘India Coffee House’ was started by the COFFEE BOARD in early 1940s, during the British rule. In the mid 1950's the Board closed down several Coffee Houses in different cities throughout India. At that time the Board had decided to dismiss the employees. A large number of employees lost their jobs. That was a turning point, the well known great communist leader com. A.K.G (Ayillyath Kuttiari Gopalan Nambiar) took over the leadership of the said employees and organized Societies all over India in various states. This is the “INDIA COFFEE BOARD WORKER'S CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY”.

A lot of dismissed Coffee Board employees had dedicated their life, money and manpower for the formation of the Society. The first Society was formed in Bangalore on August 1957. The first new generation Indian Coffee House opened in Delhi on 27th December 1957. Our Society was registered in Thrissur on 10th February 1958. The first Indian Coffee House opened at Thrissur on 8th March 1958. It was also the fourth in the country. The Coffee House was inaugurated by our beloved Godfather Com. A.K.G.

Our Society’s jurisdiction is Thrissur to Thiruvananthapuram. The Society was established in 1958 and the founder President was Adv. T.K. Krishnan and secretary was Mr. N.S. Parameswaran Pillai. Fifty Indian Coffee Houses are running across Kerala from TCR. to TVM under the control of India Coffee Board Worker's Co-operative Society Ltd. No. 4227, Thrissur.
