The search for the finest coffee in Hyderabad ends here, Period.
The Roastery Coffee House is the result of the owners Nishant & Neha’s love for Coffee and books which is quite evident once you enter the café. A cliquish house that has been remodeled into a café and set amidst an oasis of around 1500 plants, the minimalist feel of the interior invites for a lazy afternoon curled up on one of their window sofas.
“How do you like your coffee? “asked Nishant even before I could flip through the menu. A chai person that iam, all I knew was espresso, latte & cappuccino. Nishant surely knows how to put a person at ease. He promptly explained how multiple factors like the kind of coffee beans, roasting process, brew time, temperature are important along with the amount of milk and foam being used.
I started off with the cold brew which seemed liked a crowd favorite (every second table had someone sipping on them). Arabica and Peaberry are left to brew in cold water for almost like 14 hours which takes away the acidity, the result is a light brew that can be had any time of the day.
Tried the latte too which was customized to my preference, I opted for a medium brew and it was just perfect! The cookies and brownies as sides were perfect accompaniments. “We source and Roast our coffee from Mandalkhan and Thogarihunckle Estates, which grows at 4000ft above sea level in Budangiri hills” says Nishant during the pour over of my latte.
The food is that of a café but with extremely generous portions. I tried the Mac N Cheese, Creamy Spinach Pasta, Cheesy Onion Rings, Chicken Wings, Cherry Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella Bruschetta during my multiple visits and they continue to remain my standard order. The rest of the menu is innovative and quite pleasing.
All in all, The Roaster Coffee House could be herald as the start of a new coffee culture revolution. Swing by in the morning for some quiet time with a book, but be sure to bring friends in the evening because it gets noisy and lively. And while you are there, do strike a conversation with Nishant to get a detailed understanding of coffees.
