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.

Serve immediately.


To get the typical froth on top of the coffee, pour it a couple of times in the tumbler set or 2 mugs.
