For any hard core south Indian the day begins with a cup of aromatic, freshly-brewed filter coffee or decoction coffee – the whiff of coffee is very invigorating and sipping this hot beverage energizes you instantly as if it were a morning fuel for the body.
Filter coffee is made using a metal (stainless steel) container set consisting of two cylindrical cups, that goes one on top of the other. The upper cup contains small holes. There is plunger that comes along with this which is used to gently push down and compress the coffee powder.
So the filter coffee device consists of 4 pieces –
a cylindrical container at the bottom
a container with holes that is placed on the top
Coarsely ground coffee powder is available in stores, but it is better to get it from the coffee merchandiser where you can choose your coffee beans and get it ground – this is more aromatic.
