"We have experienced a great demand for our products from Coffee lovers from across the country. Coffee is an integral part of the country's lifestyle and we aim to provide them with the best blend that we have developed over the years and currently enjoyed by people across the globe. We wanted to redefine the concept of coffee making and drinking in the Middle East and our coffee masters after years of research have developed a perfect blend that suits the tastes of our customers in the region. In order to cater the growing demand the company has decided to expand its presence across more locations in Bahrain," said Abhishek Gupta, Country Manager, Food Empire, Middle East.
The company acquires coffee beans from across the globe to create the perfect blend. In Bahrain, Klassno brand includes instant cappuccinos which are available in 5 distinct flavours - 'Irish Cream', 'Mocha', 'Gold', 'Latte' and 'Traditional'.

"In a highly competitive market such as Bahrain, price and packaging are integral factors in a customer's decision making process but ultimately, it is the experience that etches a favourable impression in the consumer's mind.
