10 Things We All Love About Filter Coffee

To reduce filter coffee to a list of characteristics that makes it special is doing it no justice. You’d need to drink it to know why it is one of the most popular forms of beverages in the world.

But in the attempt to persuade you to give it a try, we’re going to list down a few common reasons why people love a cup of filter coffee.


Taste

Filter coffee can be anything you want it to be - light-bodied, medium-bodied, or even heavy-bodied.

It has a strong, refreshing taste that is usually heightened by chicory. And even if you choose an alternative that has no chicory, you’d have nothing to worry about. The coffee grounds tend to have a bitter flavour profile that retains the indulgent taste.

A lot of people usually prefer consuming filter coffee with milk and some sweetener to get the best of both worlds.


Smell

The aroma of filter coffee is a beacon in itself.

Many children (and even adults) have been nudged out of their beds and drawn to the kitchen in their Indian households because of the intoxicating scent of Indian filter coffee being brewed by a family member.

Several filter coffee flavours have a nutty, smoky aroma that leaves a lingering sweetness in the air. Once you get a whiff of it, you’ll know that there’s nothing like it.


Ability to Sharpen Your Mind

Whether you’re an early riser or not, everyone needs a firm wake up call in the morning.

And what a cold shower may not be able to do, filter coffee can for sure.

It is the only alarm bell we need to set aside the sleep-induced stupor and get ready for the day.

Filter kaapi, as it is also known in India, increases energy levels and helps you focus on the task ahead.

If you look forward to moments like these when having a cup of filter coffee can brighten your mood, you’d know why it’s cherished by people worldwide.


Varieties

Filter coffee, typically, has a strong taste because of how it's brewed. Depending on the presence of chicory, the taste may be different.
