"Coffee would be good," said Amit, the man behind the fabulous India Uncut, sometime on Tuesday after we had finished watching MS Dhoni play a fine innings at the Wankhede Stadium.
He ordered the 'Cafe Viennoise' at the Marine Plaza. Dude, this ain't a beverage. It's manna: a blast of espresso with a layer of whipped cream topped with chocolate shavings. How could something this good not be known to people? Why, when I asked for good coffee for three long years, did people suggest names such as "Cafe Coffee Day Cappuccino" or "the Cafe Mochaccino"? Did no one know of the existence of the 'Cafe Viennoise', a delightful blend of all that is good on earth? In a way I'm glad only a few know of it.
Amit seemed suitably pleased with his choice of coffee. Indeed he should be. It was delightful.
