The year 2004 saw the start of the coffee revolution when Espresso became the city’s first espresso bar. Originally launched as a tiny 18-seat espresso bar, Espresso has now evolved into a successful coffee shop/bistro thanks largely to the vision of Kamil Aziz Khan, managing partner and co-founder of Espresso.
Espresso serves its premium coffees in Karachi at five locations; the original espresso bar in Zamzama, the coffee house on Khayaban-e-Shahbaz, the Forum Mall and The Naheed Supermarket. One can sample these premium coffees in Lahore as well, at Espresso's location on Mian Mahmood Kasuri Road in Gulberg III. All outlets offer seamless Wi-Fi.
Espresso boasts a menu packed with mouth-watering appetizers, a selection of sandwiches, wraps, pastas, panini, and divine desserts. A sizeable range of teas, smoothies, hot & cold beverages and an array of coffees all created from the finest imported and local ingredients are available.
Being a local brand has helped Espresso. They know the localites’ personality and can handle them better than someone who doesn’t know the culture. They are more in touch with local norms and know how to make the system work.
Open from 8:00 am till 1:00 am on weekdays and till 2:00 am on weekends, Espresso is here to serve you.
There is also the ESPRESSO privileges membership “the card” that earns you rewards each time you visit any one of its coffee houses.
Although reservations are not entertained, the management prefers that parties larger than eight guests call ahead to inform the outlet management so that no one leaves disappointed.
