there are several ways the indian filter coffee is brewed, but the popular one is to brew it in a stainless steel metal device or to be precisely in a 2 cylindrical cups. the upper cup contains small holes which acts as a filter to pass the decoction to the lower cup. the readymade filter coffee powder is added to the top cup and is pressed and pierced using metal pressing disc. once the coffee powder and pressing disc is assembled, it is filled with hot boiling water and left untouched for 15 minutes for concentrated coffee liquid to settle down in the lower cup. this decoction can be used later and mixed with hot milk and sugar for instant strong coffee.
