A Boy, A Girl and A Cup Of Coffee.

In the flow of the moment, he sent her a text asking her out to coffee.And she said yes.

A bold move on his part

So it began. The wait before the date.


His thoughts taking off in every direction.

“What if she doesn’t like me. Hope I don’t stutter. I am so nervous. If she likes me and if things work out, how far can I take it and can I really commit. What if I am wrong about her. What if she is not who I think she is. What if I don’t like her, but she likes me, how will I tell her I am not interested without hurting her. What if I like her and she doesn’t like me, what will I do ? Should I take this seriously ? It’s just a date. Nothing more. Things will be fine. But if this is the one I am waiting for, how will I know ? Maybe it’s like the movies. It will start raining or there will a voice from inside or nothing will happen. She might cancel, I would be sad and maybe relieved. No I am losing my mind . Let me call a friend but wait I might sound stupid. What should I do ?”

And soon the day arrived. It was scheduled for 5 pm in one of the most popular cafes in the city, which had an open verandah surrounded by trees.He was a little early for his Mother always told him to never keep a girl waiting.

She came in at 5 minutes after 5 and he stood up to greet her. She smiled curtly, and took a seat opposite him.

Even though she was as cool as a cucumber on the outside, her thoughts had gone into overdrive

He looks nervous. I think he was expecting someone else. Someone taller maybe. Damn it, I should have worn heels. But maybe he likes petite women?  Maybe it’s my hair, mom always says it looks like a bird’s nest. I shouldn’t have said this out loud.He’s not smiling. He thinks I’m not interesting. Why is he staring at my purse!? Does he think I’m only here for a free drink? Hmph! I’m a working woman, how dare he compare me to those sleazy freeloaders hanging out at the mall. It’s not like he’s such a rockstar. Raybans, how typical.

He smells like Rexona. I hope I don’t smell like Nani’s sambhar. I’ve told her a million times to close the kitchen door when cooking, everything smells of sambhar. That’s why he’s repulsed by me. He’s wearing Raybans and smells like deodorant. I’m a short, sambhar-smelling girl with a haystack for hair, who looks like a free loader!!!


Of course behind those Raybans, lay the thoughts of a very nervous individual.

Oh God ! she looks so mesmerising. And she smells so heavenly. I should  have used that perfume my aunt got me from America, damn it ! She seems so graceful and if she smiles, I am going to start blushing like an idiot. If my friends ever saw me like this, I am done for. Oh my God ! my hands have gone red. I should take my glasses off but I might not be able to stop myself from smiling like a monkey and I could come across as creepy ! Ahhhhhhhhhh, what am I going to do ?


“Excuse me, sir” said the waiter

“Yes” replied he

“Would you like to order for something ?


He looked at her “Would you like to have something ?”

She looked at him intently and said “A cup of coffee.”

The waiter asked “ Cappuchino ? “

She replied “Perfect”

He looked up the waiter and said “Same for me, please !”


After what seemed like a lifetime, the coffees arrived, neither saying anything in the meantime.


Lifting up their respective cups to their lips, the first sip of coffee rushed in, the aroma came bursting through rushing down their throat.

They couldn’t help but let out a  smile.

The ice had been broken and the world made sense again !

The Summer Tango

As summer approaches with  the ferocity of the gods, it seems to be difficult to make sense when you drink HOT coffee.

Now to this little dilemma, we have a tried and tested solution.

A Simple Cold Coffee !

One of the toughest things to do when you are in the coffee business is to get people to try hot coffee before you can actually sell the product during the summer season.

So instead we devised a simple, yet a very tasty cold coffee which after consumption will help you make sense of the world again .

The Recipe :

  • 150 – 200 ml Milk (Cold )
  • 3 Ice Cubes (Not more or else you will end up with a watery outcome)
  • 2 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream (Higher the quality, better the result and don’t be a miser )
  • Coffee Decoction or Coffee Liqueur  (add based on preferred strength)
  • Powdered Sugar (Optional)

Cold Coffee

Put all of this in a Blender/Mixer/Food processor, and run it for 30-40 seconds.Pour out contents into a Glass and enjoy .

This beautiful little desert can help you replace your hot coffee you prefer after breakfast or lunch and if you want to make the most of it ( I am assuming that you travel using human transportation) you can put it in a reusable plastic glass with a straw attached to it and take it with you,while you  make your way through mundane traffic.

Hope this helps in taking the “heat” head on and when it comes to coffee, we got you covered , click on the link below .


Good wishes for the season and Happy Coffee Drinking !

The Final Ingredient & The Perfect Reaction

Some days you make coffee…Most days Coffee makes you.

On this the 11th day of the 1st month of the 16th year of the 21st century, as the clock strikes the 14th hour of the day, We at Beanstalk & Leaves will have our tryst with destiny and You, dear reader with Great Coffee.

Today is D-Day, after months of carefully selecting the best raw beans and putting our taste buds through a rigorous, thorough and most definitely life altering grueling process, I can safely say that I’ve rediscovered Coffee in all its glory.

We’re proud of the effort that we’ve put in to bring you the best experience a mug of coffee can bring you.

In our continuing love affair, Coffee has been gracious enough to raise the curtain for us on a few of its myriad personas.

So, where on one hand we have discovered the strong, steadfast, aromatically awakening friend, who isn’t afraid to give a punch in your gut and other places when you are about to give up, christened The Shotgun Blend.

We have been privileged to be introduced to the perfect start of a new day and a new life like the smooth caresses akin of a lover, like the morning rays of the sun peeping through the drapes, wafting over you, warming your heart and soul and filling you the power of the Universe to take on your day and will open your sparkling eyes, as it has ours, to notice the blue skies and the butterflies and make you believe once more that there’s Beauty in the World. Ladies and Gentleman, We give you The Velvet Dew Blend.

Our day and indeed Us wouldn’t have been complete if we didn’t have that one good friend and a great blend of coffee to share with them. One, who takes you in, shelters you from the storms of your day and heals your soul without questions and expectations. The one who you can laugh with, one you can cry with and just lose yourself with. We give you The Smooth Operator Blend, our friend and now we wish it becomes yours.

It’s been a grueling journey thus far, one which has been rewarding in more ways than we can enumerate. Your patience and kindness and love has been our North Star throughout our journey thus far and Coffee, always Coffee. We only hope to repay in some small way for all that you and coffee has given to us.

We welcome you all to Beanstalk & Leaves, A Great Experience,  Simply!

Happy Drinking.

We’re Open.
