The Indian Filter Coffee with "The Seattle Times".

Coffee to drink or not to drink – There are numerous research going on but for me it is a stimulant drink. I usually have a cup of coffee to start the day with and not more than that. My husband and daughter know that I am a very different person if I do not consume coffee in the morning. My husband somehow manages to get me a cup of coffee when we happen to be out of home.
Seattle is the Coffee Capital of the World for selling the most coffee. Not only is Seattle the originating city of the largest coffee store Starbuck's (started at Pike Place Market), but also for Tully's Coffee and Seattle's Best Coffee.
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages worldwide. Coffee comes from the Italian word café
Coffee may be presented in a variety of ways. Drip brewed, percolated, or French-pressed/cafetiere coffee may be served with no additives (colloquially known as black) or with sugar, milk or cream, or both. When served cold, it is called iced coffee.
Espresso-based coffee has a wide variety of possible presentations. In its most basic form, it is served alone as a "shot" or in the more watered down style café Americano—a shot or two of espresso with hot water. Milk can be added in various forms to espresso: steamed milk makes a café latte. Equal parts espresso and milk froth make a cappuccino. A dollop of hot, foamed milk on top creates a caffe macchiato.
Coffee is a cultural icon in Tamil culture. It is a custom to offer a cup of coffee to any guest. Coffee is typically offered in dabarah and tumbler. Some folks even get offended when served in Cup and Saucer. “Kumbakonam Degree Coffee” is very famous among coffee drinkers in India.
Most of us learn to make Coffee or Tea before learning the basics of cooking. Therefore I have only given some tips on making a good coffee to make our mornings a very pleasant one.
In America you can buy, bucket-sized cups of coffee in any flavor you like other than coffee-flavor. ~Author Unknown. I could not manage to make good coffee despite Seattle being the Coffee Capital. I am not sure if it was the milk or the coffee powder. I am able to drink a reasonably good coffee after Indian stores started selling Coffee powders.
Mothers are those wonderful people who can get up in the morning before the smell of coffee. ~Author Unknown. I still miss Amma`s early morning coffee.

Making Coffee:
Put about 4 teaspoons of Filter Coffee powder.( I use Coffee Day plus some chicory from India) in the top part of the coffee filter. Give it a slight press. Fix the top part to the lower part. Boil a cup of water and pour over the coffee powder, up to the brim. It will take a while for the decoction. In the meantime boil milk and pour the coffee back and forth between two glasses in huge motions to make a thick layer of froth on top. Scoop out the froth and keep aside.
Now mix the decoction, milk and sugar according to taste. Finally put the froth on top, mix gently and serve.


Few Tips:
  1. Store the coffee powder in an airtight container.
  2. Filter Coffee-Powder, is available with or without chicory. For better results, it is suggested to buy coffee powder and separately mix a packet of chicory. Amma`s combination is 80:20.
  3. Do not Re-heat the coffee.
  4. Do not mix water to the milk.
  5. Finally~ always make Coffee fresh.

  3. Iam coffee addict. Not a single day passes without coffee. The only difference in preparation is , we make a mix of 90:10. But 80: 20 mix coffee will be thick and more tasty.
