There has been a coffee revolution in the works over the past few years and the rising popularity of homegrown coffee is nothing short of heartwarming. Goa, too, is seeing a similar revolution. Of course, the bars and pubs (and cheap alcohol) remain at the forefront of Goan tourism, but coffee and cafes are slowly gaining ground. Goa-based roasteries and coffee bars are a major part of this movement, and we’re taking a look at just a few of them today.
