The debate normally is there about the Coffee Vs South Indian Coffee (aka Kaapi), like the earlier Coffee or Toffee commercial. In South Indian Coffee’s too there are sub-variants like Brahmin’s coffee, the others et al.
Coffee Shops, erstwhile, is where you get coffee powders with terminologies like Chicory, peebory etc., which used to confuse me always as a youngster doing shopping errands for my mom. Nowadays Coffee shops err … Coffee Pubs have taken a different avatar and are sought after by young and young adults, unlike those years.
P.s. : Incidentally the 1st Coffee Pub of Chennai – Coffee? is going to be back again at a new place, soon, i heard.
