Let’s drink it the Indian way

Kaapi / Madras filter coffee

  • South Indian filter coffee specialty
  • 70-80% medium-roasted and finely ground beans are mixed with 20-30% roasted chicory.
  • A metal filter is used for the preparation.
  • In the lower part of the filter comes the coffee mixture. Then the filter is put together, so that the coffee is compressed.
  • Pour boiling water into the upper part of the filter, which then slowly drips through the coffee powder.
  • The Kaapi is very strong. Therefore, only 1-2 tbsp. of the filter coffee is added to a cup of boiling milk and sweetened with sugar as required.
  • Shake until frothy and serve in a typical stainless steel cup with saucer (Tumbler & Dabarah)

Tomorrow we will continue with bag 5!
