Being a coffee addict, I can proudly claim that I’ve tried coffee everywhere I’ve gone in Karachi. From the Rs.5 per cup coffee at my workplace which gets me through the day to the yummy mochacino at Espresso, I’ve given Espresso the label of ‘the best coffee makers in Karachi’.

Located on 10th Commercial Lane, Zamzama, Espresso is a relatively new yet extremely welcome addition to the growing coffee bars in Karachi. With a friendly staff and a funky interior, Espresso is the favorite new hang out of Karachiites, who can afford their expensive prices.

Recommended items include the pancakes (served only at breakfast), the mochachino and last but not the least, their frappacino, which makes one want to only stare at the glass, and never drink. Since the place is quite small and makes my grandmother’s prehistoric old kitchen seem large in comparision, visitors might have to wait upto 20 minutes for a table, but the wait is so worth it. Finally, someone who knows what real coffee tastes like, instead of serving Nescafe 3 in 1 and labelling it as ‘cappuccino’.

    Greetings Huma,

    I came across your posting the other day and was extremely impressed with the photograph of Espresso and was pleasantly surprised when I read that I was not the only one who gets upset when I get a Nescafe 3 in 1 labelled as a cappuccino.
