    Usually South Indians are famous for filter coffee and any one other than south indian coming to a South Indian house will ask for filter coffee.

    Earlier they used to fry the coffee seeds and grind it in coffee machine at home only and make filter coffee.

    It was surprising that When I was working, we used to get good filter coffee made by our canteen boy who is a christian. We all used to enjoy his coffee very much.

    Yes Viji Akka
    As you go South the coffee tastes excellent. Once en route from Trichy to Kuttralam we had coffee at Rajapalayam. I have never tasted coffee that good as yet.

    Dear Viji amma,

    Filter coffee is my favorite too. When I was younger, my mom would send me to the coffee podi shop in my neighborhood to buy coffee podi. I would sit and wait while the man grinds and packs it. The aroma used to be sooooo good. Here too I have filter coffee..... nothing beats it!! Thanks for the lovely post.

    ya, filter coffee's aroma is unbeatable. the first item in my list from India is coffee powder (planning to buy 5 kgs if my husband permits).

    Dear Kalyani

    Thanks for your first fb and sorry for the late reply.
    For filter coffee you require filter in which there are two parts , on the top part at the base there are holes through which the filtered coffee goes in to the second one. On the top you have to put coffee powder and put boiled water also and in the second part the filtered coffee decotion will be there. which you can mix with milk put sugar and have. Hope you have understood. I dont know to explain properly.

    love
    viji

    Dear Akila

    Glad to know that you also love to have filter coffee. You reminded me of the days when I also used to go to the coffee shop to buy coffee powder when we were in Hyderabad
