About Us

The beginning of Artisanté stretches all the way back to 1998, when Raj Madnani pioneered the iconic Java City Café in at that time sleepy and idyllic Lavelle Road, Bangalore. Java City was one of the first coffee shop chains in the country and paved the way for today’s coffee and Café culture. Twenty years later, Bangaloreans have fond memories of Java City, not to mention the scores of married couples whose romances flourished around coffee and desserts in the café.

Today’s Artisanté is a natural evolution from our roots in confectionery and coffee, a specialty food producer run by Amit and Raj Madnani, based out of Mumbai. We make all our products in small batches with a focus on high quality ingredients, sourced from all over the world. 

It is our mission to find, test and provide you the finest gourmand treats, as we scour the Globe as well as India to curate a food-forward assortment of the finest food products that meet our, and your, uncompromising standards.

Today, we introduce you to our curated range of luxe chocolates - flavoured, dark, single origin, caramelized and more - and an alluring range of delectable hot chocolate and mocha products. After rigorous R&D at the Artisanté lab, we are very excited to share the results with you. We welcome your comments, feedback and suggestions.
