Filter coffee/kapi is the most important beverage in south indian homes.The first drink we have in the morning is kapi(coffee).Unlike coffee in rest of the world south indian coffee is milky and sweet.
My mother used to make the perfect filter coffee and my fahter's friends used to come to our house especially for the coffee that she makes.she used to buy the coffee seeds,roast and grind and brew fresh decoction.
Of course i do not take so much trouble i buy the roast and ground powder without much of chicory and brew the decoction.
