It’s an easy job to prepare South-Indian Filter Coffee at home. You just need a good blend of Coffee with less chicory . I prefer not to add chicory while grinding the coffee beans.Chicory is the roasted and ground root of the cultivated plant species, Chicorium Intybus, subspecies Sativum. Roasted chicory contains none of the volatile oils and aromatics that are contained in roasted coffee. It also contains no caffeine , yield 45 to 65% of soluble extractive matter, while coffee yields only 20 to 25%. This difference explains why less coffee and chicory can be brewed while still resulting in a beverage that looks (and tastes) quite strong.Chicory was cultivated as early as 5000 years ago by Egyptians as a medicinal plant.

Coffee grown worldwide can trace its heritage back centuries to the ancient coffee forests on the Ethiopian plateau. Legend says the goat herder Kaldi first discovered the potential of these beloved beans. He found coffee after seeing that his goats, upon consuming berries from a particular tree, ended up being so energetic that they did not wish to rest during the night

And I like Filter-Coffee since the day I was introduced to it in Bangalore. There will be hardly any Breakfast store who doesn’t sell Coffee served in small steel-glass. After that it became a regular affair at my home ,to start my preparation i bought a small Steel Coffee maker equipment from local shop nearby which is used to prepare the thick decoction .

Sometimes i prefer a cup with some extra flavor for a different taste. First i tried Green-Cardamom , this version of Filter Coffee is liked most by my family members. You can also try adding a pinch of clove powder or cinnamon to it. Though these two spices are little bit stronger compared to cardamom.

Earlier i have shared Chukku Kappi where dry-ginger is added to prepare black-coffee ,another version of Filter Coffee.
