Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Coffee powder – 3 tablespoons
  2. Water – 1 and 1/2 cups
  3. Full fat fresh milk – 1 cup or add as required
  4. Sugar – 2 teaspoons for each cup or as required
  5. Coffee filter for making the decoction


  1. This is the pic of the coffee filter. It has 2 cylindrical vessels and a lid. The top vessel has small holes in it to help the decoction get collected in the lower vessel. The lower vessel has a plain base where the decoction is collecte
  2. Fit the top vessel (with holes) on the lower vessel. Add 3 tablespoons of coffee powder on the top vessel and press gently with your finger tips.
  3. Boil 1 and 1/2 cups of water. Let it come to a nice boil. Switch off the flame. Immediately pour this water in the top vessel and close the vessel with its lid.
  4. Wait for 15-20 minutes till the coffee decoction gets collected in the lower vessel. When the coffee is brewed, collect it in a separate small vessel for further use.
  5. Take a tumbler or glass. Add 1/4 cup of decoction. Then add 1 and 1/2 cups of freshly heated hot milk and sugar. Adjust the decoction according to the strong or light coffee required by you.
  6. Now pour the coffee back and forth from the tumbler to the davara and vice versa to get that foam on the top of the coffee. Repeat this process for 2-3 times. The sugar also gets dissolved quickly.
  7. Serve filter coffee as a beverage or along with snacks like idli, dosa, upma, medu vada or uthapams.
