Fueling almost all of South India and soon charging its way to the rest of the subcontinent, Filter Kaapi or Filter Coffee is that strong, comforting companion or partner you didn't know you needed to be looking for. But best believe us that once you find a perfectly pulled cup of frothy goodness, there's no turning back! Before that here's some general knowledge - what makes good quality filter coffee is actual coffee and none of that instant stuff. A coarser grind of Arabica and Robusta beans slow roasted to a medium (to dark) and mixed with the right amount of chicory (signature addition to most filter coffees, adds a savoury, bitter depth) is believed to yield the perfect, deep and rich flavoured cup. Similarly, brewing filter coffee the right way is important too. Make sure to use a 4-part South Indian filter and let the coffee brew low and slow.
That said, finding the cup of filter coffee best suited to your tastebuds is a journey of hits and misses.
