Mumbai's Ultimate Coffee Guide to the Best Cafes!
A good cup of coffee is something we all enjoy. Indeed, we can't imagine a world without it. Coffee keeps us going, whether it's grabbing a quick cup or relaxing with friends over a cup.
But the problem is, Mumbai has never been known for its coffee; instead, chai is the preferred beverage here (tea). A chaiwallah (tea vendor) may be found in every nook and cranny of the city. But, to be honest, Mumbai also has some of India's best coffee shops. Today, Mumbai's coffee industry is a mash-up of ambitious entrepreneurs and amateur and professional coffee drinkers.
