    [QUOTE="Thyagarajan, post: 4133404, member: 472312"In some other hotels tooo in Chennai and interior of south India, the decoction ready with sugar syrup added already and they claim extra effort required to make coffee without sugar......[/QUOTE]
    The sugar syrup is a Fructose Corn syrup exported from forin. Not at all equivalent to the refined cane sugar, or sucrose, whose chemical formula you seem to have learnt by heart :confundio1:

    If restaurants start using sugared coffee decoctions, those are probably industrial size bags of what is marketed for consumers in smaller packets in sugar-free format. Rs. 135 for 250ml. of decoction product online from amazondotin, that looks like:

    This can take out a lot of stress for the young couple hurrying off to work in the mornings. Add decoction to milk, microwave for a minute (or two), toss from tumbler to dabara to make some foam, drink it up, and scoot. All the mess with waiting for the coffee filter to drip down will be over and done with.

    I am planning to get some of these kinds of coffee (the next time I am in the shopping orbit of amazondotin) and see what they are made of.

    :hello:Thank you for the informative response. But the Amazon product might have larger side effects perhaps.
    BTW thanks for recognising the chemical formula for sugar.

    One Canadian Novelist put it like this:
    “Conversations and jokes together, mutual rendering of good services, the reading together of sweetly phrased books, the sharing of nonsense and mutual attentions.”
    ― Robertson Davies, The Rebel Angels

    I am impressed that you had trained him to make coffee for you first thing in the mornings. Well Done!!

    The famous programs "Coffee with a celebrities" is it just named that way or they really drink a tasty filter coffee? Apparently, they are not promoting any coffee brands. Kumbakonam Degree Coffee brand can be promoted through this program, if it has the potential to become Starbucks of India.

    Carrying decoction and hot milk in two different flasks shows that whoever packed those things for you, is a connoisseur of coffee. The regular riffraff would have mixed them up and sent you off with a cafe-latte in the flask, that changes taste by the minute.
    This is a tragic story when you had to finally have a coffee that is shortchanged in so many ways. I hope you had suitably apologized to the people who filled and packed the two flasks for you.

    RFLOL.... destiny !!
    Sometimes what is the truth spills out, even though we didn't mean to spill it.
    Married life is indeed "destiny" that one reaches.

    The spilling of good decoction through the train window should have shocked the new bride, and made her wonder about the MIT graduate (who ought to know his physics) she had married. I am sure she had shared that with her relatives (that she had called on STD), after she reached her destiny also.:sweatsmile:

    I saw this picture of girls on roasted coffee bean in a commercial for Instant Coffee. The coffee bean in the picture is roasted minimally. I would roast it a wee bit darker, until just the sheen of the oils can be seen on the surface.
