If you're a coffee connoisseur, then Third Wave Coffee Roasters is the perfect cafe for you because they serve some of the best coffee in town. They have a wide variety of coffee roasts like Allana Sons Monsoon Malabar, Ganga Estate, and Bettadakhan Estate. Plus, the decor of this cafe is refreshing, with white walls, communal tables and sacks of coffee beans on display. You can even play games while they freshly brew your coffee in pour over or Fresh press style.

Giving us an insight, the co-founder of Third Wave Coffee Roasters, Anirudh Sharma said, "We visit the Western Ghats, and places like Chikmagalur and Yercaud in Tamil Nadu and search for the best coffee beans. When we bring in the coffee beans, we roast it in the in-house roaster in Indiranagar. We roast the beans fresh because it tends to lose its aroma otherwise."

Ravi Dabreo, the co-founder of Flying Squirrel, spoke to us about the farmer-led brand and said, "The concept of our coffee is to help you create an experience with the coffee that you taste. For centuries we've been praising coffee's from abroad but what we don't realise is that India has a lot to offer when it comes to coffee. And that's what we're trying to create: an exceptional coffee experience within the country."
