Filter Coffee


The word Filter Coffee itself has a wonderful aroma and flavor in it. I never like to have coffee, but I love to have to filter coffee. Evenings are always special for me from my childhood, when I am back to home from school, the brewing smell of the coffee pulls me to kitchen. But my mom brews coffee using a pot. The very first time I had filter coffee during my travel to hometown in a Kumbakonam Filter Coffee shop.

After that I too got a filter at home and started brewing my coffee – “Filter Coffee”. Now daily evening I and my daughter never miss to have this Filter Coffee. No words for the taste and smell of the filter coffee.

Filter Kaapi / Filter Coffee


  • Filter Coffee Powder (Narasus) – 4 tsp
  • Water – 100 ml
  • Rock Salt – a pinch (optional)
  • Milk – 2 cups
  • Sugar – as required


  • Heat the water in a bowl, let it boil.
  • In the top portion of coffee filter, add a pinch of rock salt and then the coffee powder.
  • Place the long handle like filter over the coffee powder.
  • Pour in the boiling water and close it with the lid for few mins.
  • Boil the milk and keep in low flame.
  • Remove the lid after 15 mins and check out if all the water is drained to the bottom portion of the filter.
  • Carefully remove the upper portion of the filter, you could see the decotion collected at the bottom portion of the filter.
  • Take ¾ cup of milk along with a tsp of sugar and pour in ¼ tsp of coffee decotion and start pouring the milk from one cup to another cup fastly, so that you could get lots of froth.
  • Transfer the coffee to a tawara along with the froth.

Serve hot in the morning or evening.


  1. Add salt only in the filter not to the milk and this is optional as it avoids the bitter taste.
  2. Refrigerate the excess decotion for one day.
  3. Do not heat the decotion, heat the milk and then pour the decotion.
  4. Serve hot with froth.
