South Indian filter coffee is a beverage or drink made by mixing boiling milk with the decoction made by brewing finely ground coffee powder in a traditional Indian filter. This drink is also referred as Madras filter coffee or Mysore filter coffee. It is a very common and popular drink in most of the South Indian households. South Indian filter coffee is brewed with a metal device that resembles two cylindrical cups, one of which has a pierced bottom that sits on the top of the tumbler cup, which helps to receive the brewed coffee. The upper cup has two removable parts: a pierced pressing disc with a central stem handle and a covering lid.
Filter coffee tastes best when prepared with whole fat milk and fresh strong decoction. Traditionally filter coffee is served in brass tumbler and davara. But nowadays it is served in steel tumbler and davara. A good coffee also depends on the quality of the coffee powder used. We generally get the coffee powder from Chennai which suits our taste well. Nowadays, coffee powder is easily available in almost all major cities of India or even online.
