The Prequel

Another morning, another day and the only thing that remains a constant, a beautiful cup of coffee. As it brews and the fragrance hits your nose, awakening your inner temple.

And as you reach for your first cuppa of the day, you realise that it is such a perfect stimulant.

Sipping very slightly and enjoying the first rush of caffeine entering your body, sparking of a reaction, making you smile ever so slightly. As the sleep recedes, it gets substituted with a raw energy that starts to heighten all your 5 senses while sharpening your 6th.

The killer of procrastination, the conqueror of lethargy, the king of stimulation (on the right side of the law.)

Ahhh what would we do without coffee.

The world truly woke up when it discovered coffee. The true elixir of the gods if I may go so far as to call it that. The resolve to be best version of you, only becoming stronger with every sip.

And how lives actually revolve around coffee. When a young fellow comes of age, he usually shows his interest in the fairer sex by asking them to coffee. If the young lady finds him interesting, she accepts. And over a stimulating brew, they divulge just enough so as to keep it interesting.

The fair connoisseur who lifts the nose at the most pungents of coffees, but the love for coffee stems from coffee itself. Coffee is liked by everyone and loved by the masses. One way or the other you find a reason to love it.

Walking into a cafe, the whiff of freshly prepared coffee gets you excited, and it raises your hope of a great experience.

The one friend who is always there even if life goes sideways. The one friend who always without fail, lifts up your spirits when you are down. The only best friend you will ever need.

So here is me raising my cup to you fellow coffee lover and wishing you all the good things in life !

Cheers 🙂

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.

Coffee Chronicles : Chapter 2

“I believe, humans get a lot done, NOT because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee”, I personally, wholeheartedly, support this pronouncement from Flash Rosenberg.

Where would the world stand today, if it wasn’t for the Brew of the Gods?

The discovery of coffee has enlarged the realm of illusion and given more promise to hope.I’m quite sure Alexander, in counsel with his generals, inspired by a hot freshly brewed coffee in his ruby encrusted chalice said, “Heaven cannot brook 2 suns, nor Earth 2 masters!” and thus proceeded to conquer the world.

We, my co-founder and I, live our lives measurable in coffee breaks. In other words, coffee features quite prominently in both our lives, as I am immensely sure, it does in yours.

The not-so-humble coffee, (yeah, tea is humble, coffee isn’t anything of the sort!), dons several roles.

He’s the early morning friend, whom you hate to love. He’s the one you turn to, to pick you up and dust you off, during the middle of a particularly grueling day. He sits patiently beside you while you mull the eccentricities of the world around, gallantly bears your own and then some.

Coffee never betrays, never fails you and most importantly, he never ever disappoints you. Every cup you brew, every sip you take is the start of a new love affair.

Our only hope is that we can play Cupid and help you find your one true, lifelong love.

Cheers.
