i am a big-time coffee drinker. especially after landing in australia, my love for coffee’s has increased further. this is mainly due to the range of coffee variations available here. i personally have nespresso coffee machine next to my work table and i drink it more often. even after these options, i ensure to have one dosage of filter coffee every day. it is generally the first thing i make it in the morning. having said that, my husband is completely opposite when it comes to morning beverage. he just needs one cup of tea (preferably masala chai) with his morning breakfast. that’s it for his entire day. even though we hail from the same location, we have different taste and choice in terms of food and beverage.

anyway, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to south indian filter coffee. firstly, the coffee powder is important and unique to this recipe. you cannot use instant or smooth textured coffee powder for this recipe. perhaps, you can use coffee grounding machine to ground coffee beans and use it for this recipe. secondly, once the hot water is added, it has to be rested for a minimum of 30 mins. ideally, you can keep it overnight and use it in the early morning. lastly, you may increase or decrease the coffee powder quantity and hot water as per your taste. for instance, if you need a strong coffee, you may add 1 tbsp extra on top of what i have shown in this recipe post.
