    Thank you @Laks09

    I have mostly survived on tea and after drinking loads of coffee in India this time, I had to try it at home.

    Thank you @sociallifein30s

    1/3 decotion and 2/3 milk seems to be the consensus. The problem is I have whole milk which I dilute it normally. Might have to be trial and error in my case to find the right proportion.

    Wow, thank you Ma'm, that was both educational and enjoyable. I don't remember seeing the percolator in recent times and had totally forgotten that it existed.

    I will need to come back time and again to your response here till I have the details you have shared ingrained. Truly valuable.

    :hello:As addedum to my previous response, i wish to state here about coffee - A thesis about coffee around the world - one can read encyclopaedic from the thread by il famous popular fellow member @Amulet
    Amulet's Coffee

    In chennai for lovers of coffee with out sugar C12 H22 O 11
    Some restaurants charge extra. I questioned the supervisor of Saravana Bhawan in one if their branches, his answer surprised me. He said the sugar(powdered) stands added to the powder and then decoction extracted. For those ordering coffee, they have to get decoction extracted separately which is additional work and consumes extra time! Therefore they are compelled to charge more fir extra labour!

    A friend of mine told a little brandy in a thin layer l ed on to this beverage and micro sipping it makes him at ease when he suffers severe cold. I haven’t tried!

    I loved the image and the froth over strong coffee in that ss tumbler in image. It is time IST 7.20AM TUESDAY here for my second coffee - a luxury said so by dad.
    A vicarious sip of coffee offered in the image is heavenly.
    Thanks.
    Regards.
    God Bless
