A lot of people who visit south India fall in love with “The South Indian Decoction Coffee”. Recently one of my status update about cofee(kaapi in tamizh) in facebook on a chill(Jill in Tamizh) morning provoked so much of comments and discussions. The “decoction-coffee” making filter and also the pair of davara and tumbler goes with the kaapi. Gifts of good beans, coffee mugs and coffee discussions are never misplaced. This post in pictures is about how we prepare that South Indian Decoction Coffee at home . There is no one-way to make it. There are lots of variations. This is my story. My Grandma used to buy the bean, roast it at home and use a manual grinding machine everyday morning and evening to make her powder. Nothing less would suffice. I have not yet reached that kind of sophistication. Incidentally I am at my Grandma’s place writing this. Over to the pictures of the coffee story now.
