Coffee Suggestions

Welcome to STB's coffee suggestions page. The thought behind this compilation is to help people new to Indian speciality coffee 'find their co-ordinates' around their favourite way of drinking coffee at home.

 

This is not intended to be a ranking or rating of coffees. Just STB team's idea of some tasty ones after collectively consuming more than 6000 cups of these and many more since 2019.

Best Coffees to try after instant 

Instant coffee, whilst surely a marvel of science, is no match for freshly brewed coffee when it comes to the natural flavour and aroma of brewed coffee.

 

If you prefer freshly brewed tea to instant tea powder, freshly squeezed juices to canned variants, then you owe it to yourself to give these fresh coffee options a shot.
