The Aroma of South-Indian Filter Coffee!!



Looks like its been ages since i blogged, had my own reasons though. I was thinking what should i blog about now that i'm back and after a series of thoughts, this is where i landed. I know many people have already blogged about the art of coffee making in the past and i'm one more in the list but tell me one thing "Do YOU Like COFFee"?? If you are reading this, then chances are the answer is a resounding yes!

To me coffee is more than just a passion, and nothing beats being with your loved ones relaxing and sipping a hot cuppa while enjoying life. It does not matter either if you have been a lifelong coffee fan, or are just now getting into the experience.
Coffee is one of those joys that can be savored by anyone at any time and research has proved that it is the most favored hot drink of the people all over the world. I wouldn't be wrong if i say it is the biggest TEMPTATION ever.

My friends often tell me I make a great coffee and the secret is I believe a cup of perfect coffee should have the flavor of coffee to suit to your tongue . Being a big coffee fan myself I’ve put quite a bit of research into getting it right. Back then the only coffee i knew was filter coffee, later came the instant versions like Bru and Nescafe. Today there are so many flavors of coffee available in coffee houses like Mocha, Cappuccino, Latte, Espresso but nothing to beat the taste of a traditional filter coffee. South-indians are known for this aromatic coffee. Indian filter coffee even migrated overseas in the early 20th century to Malaysia and Singapore.

Like many, even i got a filter this time when i went to India along with the traditional steel tumblers and trust me you can feel the real taste of Filter coffee when it is served hot and frothy in the tumbler.


The filter has an upper chamber with a perforated bottom, the coffee powder is put in this, covered with plunger or umbrella and enough boiling water to fill the upper chamber and then closed with the lid.
It has a lower chamber where the coffee decoction drips and gets collected. The whole dripping process takes atleast an hour. I prefer to set my coffee filter last thing at night, so the decoction is ready to use in the morning. The extra decoction can be either refrigerated or stored in a cool place for the day.



You will need:

Coffee Powder : 3-4 heaped Tablespoons
Sugar : 1 tsp is good enough (for 2 cups)
Milk : As desired

Directions:

Fill the upper part of the filter with coffee powder. Slightly tap on the counter, a few times and place the plunger on the top.
Place the upper container over the lower one.
Pour hot water very slowly. Close and allow the decoction to collect into the lower container.
Heat milk till it reaches boiling point. You may add sugar now.
Add decoction as desired (4-5 tablespoons) and turn off the gas IMMEDIATELY.
Increase the decoction as per taste if you prefer your coffee really dark and strong.
Serve hot and frothy.


There’s nothing worse than a bad cup of coffee. The worst part about it is the expectation of a great cup and then the letdown when that bitter or burnt flavor hits your taste buds.

Here are some tips to avoid the above:

1. Make sure the filter is dry when you are adding the powder to it.

2. Use good tasting water. They say our bodies are made of 90% percent water, well our coffee is too. If you usually don’t drink tap water then why make your coffee with it. Filtered water or bottled water will make your coffee taste better.

3. Never heat the decoction or the coffee once the the decoction has been added to the milk. Reheating or overheating the coffee is a great way to suck the flavor out, so just say no!

4. If you use decoction stored in the fridge, heat the decoction separately by placing it in boiling water.

5. You can also make cold coffee using this decoction.

Making coffee is an enjoyable experience. A ruined cup of coffee is enough to ruin your day.
Hence follow these simple tips when making coffee and you will be rewarded with a great cup every time.



Believe it or not:

Coffee is actually one of the healthiest beverages billions of people consume regularly.

Caffeine in coffee keeps our brains alert and receptive of new information.

Regular consumption of coffee decreases the risk of type II diabetes and many other health risks.

The growing body of scientific research shows that coffee, when drunk in moderation (two to three regular size cups a day) is safe for healthy adults.



Don't let people tell you coffee is a bad drug and should be avoided at all costs.
You know the truth that coffee actually has more benefits than negatives, so enjoy your coffee worry free about hindering for diet and weight loss goals.

Have a great day !

Hey Aruna,

Coffee looks real tempting,as i was commenting I realized that I just finished my lunch and had to wait for some time to relish this steamy hot filter coffee..

Great entry..
I surely found this post tempting enough to pen down..
will visit here often..

AshKuku said...

You couldn't post anything better & yummy than this..... What a cuppa that is... I truly agree, I drink the so called hot cappuccino @ the coffee day, but never enjoyed it, rather was never refreshing.... At least I like the cold coffee better than the hot cappuccino.....

U have posted this so well, the write up & the cuppa is so amazing... U took me back to those days at my mom' place.... Gone are those days forever... I can only long for them, till death.... The filter coffee she made & I helped her with... It is just gone.... I am out after being married, now there is a sis in-law, & more over they don't drink coffee anymore because of their health issues.... I am in tears as I am writing this.... I miss everything.... I wonder why can I not have the happiness of both the worlds.... why just one.... Why only hubby??? I feel this phase is an addition to already existing happiness, but no, it is not like that.... WHATEVER!!!!

that lively picture of that cuppa, kindled my emotions & drained them out.... What a CUPPA????!!!!! U could not have been back with a better post than this.... WELCOME BACK!!!!

Ash....

hi aruna,
क्या करूं मैं? कहां जाऊं? इतनी खुशी कैसे संभालूं? सच्ची आपकी वापसी पर इतनी खुश हूं कि शब्द ही नहीं मिल रहे उसे व्यक्त करने के लिये. वैसे कहां गायब हो जातीं हैं आप? अब मत जाना प्लीज़...
और ये कॉफ़ी..क्या कहने हैं लम्बे अन्तराल को भरने के लिये अच्छी शुरुआत की है कॉफ़ी से. साउथ की कॉफ़ी मुझे बहुत पसंद है. एक अलग ही खुश्बू होती है उसकी.
