South Indian Filter Coffee, with its stimulating aroma, is like an alarm clock that can wake you up even when you are dog-tired! An everyday beverage in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, Filter Coffee has now become popular throughout the country. Filter Coffee is made using a special utensil that has two parts. The upper part has a perforated base, which allows the decoction to seep through into the lower half, which is basically a container. To make filter coffee, you need to put the coffee powder into the upper strainer-like container, press it using the special inverted-umbrella shaped attachment and top it with hot water. Slowly, decoction collects in the lower container. If you do not have this special coffee filter, you can line a strainer with muslin cloth, place it over a container and follow the same procedure. Here is how to make the perfect filter coffee!
