Searching to grab a cuppa? Have a look at these artisanal brews to find your new favourite.
Blue Tokai, New Delhi
No conversation about Indian artisanal coffee is complete without the mention of Blue Tokai. The brand has mapped its presence, quite literally. You will find Blue Tokai Cafes in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Goa, Noida, Gurugram, and Jaipur and the shipment of their coffee and special coffee brewing equipments happen all across India. They are the pioneers of saving the best coffee for the Indian market for connoisseurs back home rather than exporting all of it. Do check out their regular coffee brewing workshops for a low-down on brewing good coffee like a pro! If you are in Delhi, you have to visit their first cafe cum Roastery based in Saidulajab, Saket to watch coffee being processed from bean to cup.
Third Wave Coffee Roasters, Bengaluru
Their cafes are located in the most popular lanes of Bengaluru cultivating a community of discerning coffee lovers steadily. We love the freshness of the coffee which probably owes their proximity to estate farms based in Karnataka. Their cold brew concoctions infused with citrus, basil, and watermelon set them apart from all the other artisanal coffees in town. Props to them for using steel straws across all their cafes!
Koinonia Coffee Roasters, Mumbai
If you want to sample coffees from different estates spanning all over south India, then Koinonia is the perfect place to be. We recommend their Dark Roast Sampler Pack as well as the New International Coffee Taster Pack which includes specialty coffees from Costa Rica, Brazil, and Ethiopia. Find their coffee at Foodhall and their cafe located in Khar West, Mumbai. The minimal yet descriptive decor will guide you through the selection process based on different grind sizes.
The Pantry, Mumbai
This cutesy cafe in Kala Ghoda, Mumbai is popular for its Instagram-worthy interiors and organic food. They put the utmost care into every dish be it a gluten-free baked ratatouille or lamb keema. And they went a step ahead with their coffee as well. The brand sources its coffee from Bandekhan Estate in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. The beans are treated with honey and natural spring water which gives them the taste of chocolate and malt. The bonus? Every order of coffee comes with a keto square, pea protein, and organic nuts! Opt for the almond mylk variant for the extra nutty flavour.
Their Vietnamese cold-brew is to die for! The delectable combination of condensed milk and their nuanced, gourmet cold brew will remind you of your Southeast Asian trips. Apart from that, they retail some very handy coffee brewing equipment to make the perfect cup in seconds. Choose from their hot Brew Bags which work a lot like tea bags and their cold Brew Box and serves up to 10 cold brew cups on tap!
Don’t stop until you try all of them. There’s no such thing as too much coffee!
