Our South Indian filter coffee is made the way it was first made for our Founder's Mother, perfectly balanced for the richest and most authentic flavour. Our Founder's Mother is at the heart of everything we do, every aspect is carefully thought of & planned, no compromises! (What a cliche right, but its true) Our carefully crafted, award winning blend comprises of 'Mysore Nugget', 'Monsoon Malabar' & 'Kaapi Royale' with an optimum amount of premium organic chicory, all blended to bring out the best characteristics of each element. Therefore the secret lies in the roast profile of each estate coffee and the exact blend percentage.
Sourced from the growing highlands of South India, the rich beauty and intense aroma of this coffee is preserved as a result of the high elevation and abundance of shade on the plantation. All our coffees are 'specialty grade' (unfortunately a term that is overused these days without any transparency). These coffees are in the top 5 that come out of India, with a hefty price tag, at least 40-50% more than premium or commodity grade coffees (which you may find in cheaper alternatives sold on the shelves of retailers). Our aim is to source these beautiful coffees, roast them fresh and get it to our customers fast!
We carefully source the finest 'specialty grade' indian coffees, including premium quality chicory direct from the farms.

As a traditional South Indian, I have been drinking filter coffee for over 50 years. I am happy to say Malgudi days filter coffee has bowled me over with its real "filter coffee" aroma and its rich flavour. It's the only filter coffee I drink now.

When I heard that South Indian Filter Coffee was roasted locally I became excited. The coffee was amazing & better than my experiences with vendors of Chennai! I’m delighted to recommend MD to anyone keen to start their day or experience an alternative to espresso.

What attracted me at first was its name. I grew up watching the famous tele-series penned by the brilliant R.K.Narayan. The name evokes fond memories of childhood and that of aromatic coffee! Malgudi Days embodies all that is South Indian & pure.

I have been working with espresso for the past 15 years and through that time have roasted coffee, owned cafes and trained thousands of baristas in Australia. I’ve tried many alternatives to espresso at home but MD using the traditional indian filter system was a very special experience. The aroma and the flavour are superb.

Ah! It transports me back home instantly with its rich aroma and the classic South Indian filter coffee taste. Malgudi Days easily becomes an addiction for coffee-holics & I am glad to have unearthed this gem in Sydney.
