    FILTER COFFEE

coffeeFilter Coffee is considered as a cultural icon of every South Indian Family. It is also called ‘degree Coffee’ or ‘Kumbakonam Degree Coffee’ by many. Newspaper and a Cup of Filter coffee are two inseparable twins and they have always been the order of the Morning for most of the South Indian. It is also a cultural courtesy to offer coffee to any one who visits Home or Office. As per legend it is believed, Baba Budan, who lived in what is called as Chikmagalur today, introduced Coffee to the south in the 17th century. He bought a handful of Coffee Seed from Yemen after his Haj Yatra and planted it in his place. The British made it more popular during their rule. Coffee Beans used for Filter Coffee are Arabica and Robusta and it is grown in the ghat areas of Karnataka [Coorg and Hassan], Tamil Nadu [Nilgiris] and Malabar Region of Kerala. Traditionally Plantation A and Peaberry are used to make Filter Coffee. The Beans are medium roasted and fine ground and mixed with 25% Chicory to give it the Ultimate taste. In villages, apart from sugar, many use Karupatti /Palm jiggery/sugar as sweetening agent. Even though exclusive Coffee shops have opened their shutters to impress upon their clients to try out variations in taste and combinations and Younger generations do fill up the seats there, the craze for Filter Coffee still exists and it will be the same in the future too.
