Filter coffee is south India's pride. Aromatic, milky, strong and frothy, the filter coffee differs in taste and make from its 'instant' variant. To make the traditional filter coffee, you need the coffee making container. The container comes in two parts. The upper part is where the coffee powder goes. It gets filtered and collected in the lower container.
The decoction (filtered, liquid coffee) is then passed over to a tumbler(steel cup) to which boiled milk and sugar is added. It is easily made and delicious.
