    Hi Ladies,

    To get the authentic filter coffee taste, please buy an "Espresso " machine rather than the regular coffee machine. Espresso machine gives the rich dark decoction needed to make filter coffee. The coffee machine one is kind of light .

    Hope this helps.

    hi,

    You get indian brand coffee powders (kothas, narasus) in indian groceries which are much cheaper compared to american brands.If you use filter paper which you get in malls in coffee maker,you get the same indian taste.

    Hi all,

    In texas, i didn't find any Kothas or narsus coffee powder, i have to adjust with Starbucks coffee which comes in Asian blend too, but its no way comparable to indian coffee.

    cheers

    Hi,

    The best way to start early morning is with filter :coffee. I bought coffee filters when I went to Chennai . I use the COSTCO brand Kirkland Dark Roast 100% Columbian Coffee in the filter. The decoction comes out thick and not watery like Folgers. This has the exact aroma, taste and flavor of Leo coffee in Chennai. Hope everyone can agree with this.

    Thanks,
    Jithiks
