We am a caffeine addict. Whoever knows us knows that we are suckers for good coffee. But our coffee universe is quite small even after being crazy about it. Recently, we have been trying to expand this universe. When you love something, you gotta know all their many faces right?
This was one aspect that attracted us to Blue Tokai Coffee Roaster. Blue Tokai Coffee is not a place for the novices, so definitely not a place for those of us (yes, us) who know two kinds of coffee – Cold Coffee and Cappuccino and sometimes a third one, Latte. Though, that should not refrain anyone of us from treating our taste buds with some strong, mind-blowing coffee.
Let’s get to some Coffee business, shall we?
Cold Brew – Black coffee served cold (and with more ice), this is not for the faint-hearted. Pour the sugar syrup with care. Very strong coffee aroma and a mild chocolaty flavour.
Coffee Tonic – Coffee meets tangy in this unique combination of tonic (red bull) and espresso. Tangy taste gives a strong caffeine kick.
Affogato – This is more of a coffee and ice cream based dessert. Two scoops of Vanilla ice cream with espresso. You first devour the delicious coffee flavoured ice cream and then drink the coffee.
We tried some of their mind-blowing desserts and munchies as well.
Custard Cruffin – A marvellous twist to the good ‘ol croissant, delicious creamy custard oozing out with every bite. Dusted with powder sugar this beauty is a must-have here!
Almond Croissant – Perfectly flaky and buttery, the outer layer was crisp and glazed with honey and topped with lots of almonds. The inner layers were soft, buttery and had sugar syrup, not making them too sweet, but rather just perfect ❤
Overall Experience: Amazing. Just perfect. Peaceful calm ambience, good music, a window facing seat and confusingly good coffee. The service is amazing as well and they readily help you make a choice or tell you the right way to go about your coffee.
Information: The gates of this place are sometimes closed for customers because they have various coffee brewing/cake baking/etc. etc. sessions. It is better to check for updates on their social media pages before you drive all way to town and through the narrow lanes near Shakti Mills in hopes of a good cup of coffee. ‘Coz that hurts, believe us, we have been there and done that.
