Filter coffee (kaapi)
A tumbler of freshly brewed filter coffee (kaapi) is a great mood booster anytime of the day. The preparation is quite simple, but you will need a coffee filter to prepare this traditional south Indian beverage. Use a freshly ground blend of your favourite coffee beans. A blend of coffee and chicory helps to make the coffee thicker. Filter coffee is usually served in a tumbler (or a tumbler set) but you can also use a mug. Piping hot, fresh and wholesome Sarda Farms milk is added to the aromatic coffee decoction to make a soulful magic potion!
- 1 ½ cups Sarda Farms milk
- 4 heaped tablespoons freshly ground coffee blend
- 2 teaspoons sugar (or as required)
To make the decoction:
Place the coffee powder in the top compartment (the one with holes) of the filter.
Press with the disc so that the coffee is spread evenly.
Pour 1 ½ cups boiling hot water over this.
Cover the filter and let it sit till all the water percolates into the lower compartment.This usually takes about 1- 1 1/2 hours but will depend on the quality of the coffee powder.
To make Filter coffee
Heat milk in a sauce pan till it comes to a boil.
Add sugar and stir till it dissolves.
Distribute it into 2 tumblers or mugs.
Add the decoction as required. Stir
You can re-heat it in the pan on low flame (do not boil) if you want your coffee very hot.
To get the typical froth on top of the coffee, pour it a couple of times in the tumbler set or 2 mugs.
