    This morning my coffee filter was pretty slow in dripping down the decoction. I am not one for any sort of morning puja before coffee. However, this morning I almost thought I needed some help.
    Here is the old Coffee Dandakam:

    :hello: A bit of chocolate added to coffee filter along with regular coffee powder.The decoction tasted better with milk.
    A dash of vanilla powder added to coffee filter along with regular powder. The resulting decoction mixed with less milk made delicious drink.

    It is becoming increasingly popular in our backyard nowadays. I was in Chatanooga last month and I saw many drinking a coffee with a lot of froth and I wanted to have one in the nice cold evening. When the bearer asked what I would like to be mixed with, I realized it was an alcoholic drink. Ignorance is never blissful.

    Some glazed pottery in coffee filters are quite beautiful. Here is a Madras-Vietnamese design with the top filter to sit right over a coffee mug to make the decoction. The water spreader is quite nicely crafted. However, it is the most fragile part, and would require careful handling.

    I sent a photo like that to a friend, and she asked, what are those? On the first blush, to her, they looked like shells we used to play with, when we were children.

    I took a handful of these coffee beans from my storage bottle and chose six of the really flat ones for testing as shell candidates to use as dice for playing snakes and ladders. In a gentle toss, it is easy to get "12" (all six beans with flat sides down), but more difficult to get "6" (all six beans with flat sides up).

    Skip the sales talk at the end....no need for that kind of contraption for home coffee roasters.

    Focus on the notion of "fresh coffee" versus "dead coffee" in the preamble of the coffee besotted...... several grades nuttier than a coffee lover.
