Indian filter coffee brew guide
How To Prepare a Traditional Indian Filter Coffee
South Indian filter coffee is traditionally brewed in a stainless steel South Indian metal filter with two parts, assembled one on top of the other. For the purposes of this guide we will be using a small 4-cup Indian filter.
To brew your coffee, the recommended coffee/ water ratio is 50gm/ 250ml, along with a coffee decoction/ milk ratio of 40ml/ 80ml.
The above coffee/ water ratio might be different from filter coffee norms you have seen elsewhere, because this is the traditional South Indian recipe. The coffee decoction will be extracted by gravity, similar to other filter systems.
