The ease of picking me up at your favorite cafe might not be achievable, but that doesn’t mean you’re drinking gunk at home. Here are some good quality coffee and tea options that you may not have explored yet.
Maverick and farmer
Coffee is personal to me, and I’m very serious about what I give a chance to, when I start my day. Maverick & Farmer launched unique coffees this year, among which Ol ’Smoky’, a cold smoked coffee with notes of smoke, pineapple and caramel, is now a personal favorite. The other – Orange Are you curious? – is an orange juice fermented coffee, with citrus and cherry wine as tasting notes, and will make a great cup of tea after work. Maverick & Farmer took the craft coffee wave a step further with these new ones.
Coorg’s Ainmane Coffee, also in Bengaluru, produces Civet Coffee, one of the most expensive coffee varieties in the world. I know a lot of people are squeamish about civet coffee, but the taste is worth it. If you’re new to the game, they have single origin coffees from areas of Karnataka for you to try, or go for a frothy Malabar from the specialty coffee range.
If you are in Mumbai and have not yet tried Subko, now is a good time. Subko was started during the pandemic by Rahul Reddy and Daniel Trulson, sources Arabica beans from coffee plantations in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Meghalaya. In fact, they created a contactless social distancing store, which they now call Bombay Hyperlocal Store, where you can place your order for pickup or delivery. Loads of one-of-a-kind options, and overflow filters too for those who don’t care much for coffee machines.
SLAY saved me from the office coffee machine, before the office became home, and now it saves me at home. They’ll deliver an artisan gourmet mug to your doorstep, or you can order their signature ground roast. Their hazelnut coffee with an extra espresso is my favorite. Quality and economy, SLAY does the trick.
