Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

The joyous season of winter is finally here in the Pink city and it means that it is time for you to head out and check some of the cool events happening around! You may wonder why the winters are the best season for it, but the answer is quite simple.

This time, we've found something that should interest the literature lovers in each of you. In Jaipur, there's a coffee and book fair happening soon and it is what the inner intellectual in you needs. Here, you can sit back, relax, sip some coffee and reignite your love for books.

What's happening?

Literature festivals seem to be a dime a dozen right now not just in Jaipur, but at other places as well. Kitabay & Koffee is one that takes things quite differently. Instead of having you pick just one or two books, you get to take as many books as you want!

More than a literature fest, this is one event that is about spreading the message of reading books. Here, you can purchase boxes, which you can then load to the brim with all sorts of books, no matter the individual price. If you're someone who has been meaning to stock up on some new novels, then this is the place to be.

What about the coffee?

When you're here, you can actually expect more than just books. The theme of the event is books and coffee, so naturally, you're going to find some caffeine here. These guys have gone through immense trouble to bring you coffee from the finest beans that can be found down in South India.

The variety of coffee is almost as vast as the entire book collection, if not more. From flavoured to ultra strong coffee, you can find it all here. The best part? You can find loads of like-minded people here who are always up for a striking conversation.

Enjoy the beautiful weather at the book fair, with some amazing coffee & your favourite books.
