Let's go for coffee' has now a day becoming one of the fastest growing trends among Pakistan.

The upscale and wealthy areas of Karachi, Lahore and other well developed cities are now lined with coffee café's where youngsters as well as old people from affluent backgrounds come to relish with the taste of a variety of coffee brews.

In terms of fondness it can be observe that coffee is replacing the traditional 'Chai' craze of which our society is addicted to.

Interestingly, coffee is not an extraordinary phenomenon in the East; the first coffee trees were cultivated on the Arabian Peninsula; and the drink was introduced in the west by the Ottoman Turks.

Karachi coffee cafe's provides a laid -back in an environment where both the young and aged people  sipping their hot cups of coffees,  where fast food also serve up and other crispy snacks, along with the mouth watering desserts.

As far as coffee itself is concerned, the choice ranges from cappuccino steaming black espresso to milder flavored hot and cold coffee's combination.

One's favorite is the Mocha, a divine hot chocolate coffee combination which is great and delicious that smoothes your taste buds with its immense taste.

Conceivably the best thing about going for coffee is that cafe welcomes you at any time, it might be early morning or late night.  Crowds which we can see in these café generally consist of students, office workers, intellectuals, artists, and couples.

It is not unusual that ones walk into a coffee shop and see tables of executive on a break; large group of teenagers out for a quick bit and some socializing.

The atmosphere is informal, customer noise accompanied by familiar and popular music. Once you enter in a café forget all your works and enjoy the great taste of creamy coffee in a chill atmosphere.

The main purpose that most people go to coffee shops is that they want to escape from daily routine life, to enjoy company with friends, accompany by a steaming hot cappuccino or an ice cold frappaccino.

It's a nice informal way to spend a casual evening that is different from formal dinner and three-course meals-the idea to do something spontaneous and for fun is going for a cup of coffee.

Trend seems to be changed with the passage of time now coffee culture is the changing time's value and priority.
