India is a country known for its diverse culture and traditions, and the same applies to its coffee culture. Even though it is a land of tea lovers, coffee has also made its mark within the country. Coffee lovers can find a variety of coffee types in India, ranging from traditional filter coffee to unique blends with local ingredients. At Sir Dough Bakehouse Café (Mohali, Ludhiana) we proudly serve the finest roasts sourced from the most exquisite coffee estates in the country.

Here are some of the most popular types of coffees in India:

Filter Coffee

Filter coffee is one of the most popular types of coffee in South India. It is made by brewing coffee beans in a metal coffee filter, and then mixing the concentrated brew with hot milk and sugar. Filter coffee has a rich aroma and a unique taste that is enjoyed by coffee lovers across the country. It is typically served in a steel glass and saucer, and is a staple in South Indian households.


Espresso is a type of coffee that is made by forcing hot water through finely ground coffee beans. It is a strong and intense coffee that is enjoyed by those who like their coffee with a kick. Espresso is often used as a base for other coffee drinks, such as cappuccinos and lattes.
