Having a cup of hot coffee is one of the best ways to beat the chill during winter. It is also a great stimulant and keeps you going. Taking a coffee break is always very refreshing. A cup of hot coffee and great conversations go hand in hand. The following are some places where you can have a variety of lip smacking coffees and never-ending round of conversations.
Cafe Coffee Day is a great place to have coffee and catch up. “It is nearest coffee outlet from our office. Every evening we go there to have coffee and unwind,” says a working professional. It serves various types of coffee. You can choose from cappuccino, mochachino, espresso, and macchiato. Cappuccino is the regular coffee. It is a mix of coffee and milk. Mochachino contains coffee, chocolate, and milk. Espresso is a black coffee, which contains no milk at all. Macchiato is a black coffee having a very small amount of milk foam. You can also try the Irish coffee. It is made of coffee, sugar, cream and a smooth flavour of non-alcoholic whiskey. “What I love about Cafe Coffee Day is that they serve Irish coffee. It is so different from other coffees,” says a Delhi University student.
Barista is known for its Italian style coffee and great ambience. Here you often spot people working on their laptops, while having coffee. You also see many young couples having coffee here. “I had first met my boyfriend at Barista for a coffee date,” says a marketing student. Apart from the regular coffees like cappuccino, mochachino and espresso, they serve cappuccino aroma, marocchino, and cappuggiro. Cappuccino aroma is the all time favourite coffee beverage enhanced with a flavour of your choice. You can choose from hazelnut, Irish and caramel flavour. Marocchino is a shot of espresso layered with warm frothed milk and your choice of flavour topped with a sprinkling of dark cocoa. It is rich and full of flavour to the last sip. It is for those people who love chocolate and cocoa flavour.
“I like coffees which have chocolate and Marocchino is my favourite,” says a fashion designer. Cappuggiro is an inverted cappuccino that starts with a special Italian flavour of your choice followed by steamed milk and a layer of luscious coffee cream dusted with dark cocoa. You can also try Espresso Italiano and hazelnut mocha.
You can hang out at Costa Coffee. It is a great place to have coffee and reinvigorate your senses. It is slightly expensive as compared to Cafe Coffee Day and Barista. “My friends and I love to go Costa Coffee in the evening,” says an MBA student. It serves different kinds of coffee. “Apart from cappuccino, mochachino, espresso and macchiato, you can try espresso doppio and flat white. Espresso doppio is a double espresso shot. It is for those people who like strong coffee. Flat white is a rich, full-flavoured coffee with a velvety, smooth texture. It is hand-finished with a distinctive pattern. I love having flat white at Costa Coffee in winters,” says an engineering student.
Coffee beans and tea leaf is another place where you get brewing and delectable coffee. Here you can choose from espresso macchiato, Americano and cafe latte. Espresso Macchiato is Espresso topped with just a dash of milk. Americano is espresso coffee having more water.
“I like having Americano at Coffee Beans and Tea Leaf,” says a student of Delhi University. Caffe Latte contains more milk and less coffee. It is available in many flavours.
