How to brew a Great Coffee?
The simplest and best way to brew a great cup of coffee is to use the South-Indian Coffee Filter.
It is easy to use, quick, cost-effective and gives you a clean cup, extracting just the desired flavours from the coffee.
A Guide to Brewing the Perfect Cup
- Place 35gm coffee powder (4 heaped TBSP) in the upper section of the filter on the sieve.
- Place the spindle (not too tight) on top of the coffee powder.
- Pour 250ml simmering hot water.
- Loosely place the upper lid to cover the filter. Allow the water to percolate through the powder and sieve into the lower compartment or directly into your cup.
- Once all the water has percolated through, throw out the residue* in the upper compartment and wash the filter clean. Check the sieve and free blocked holes.
- The brew extracted is coffee concentrate and is called the decoction.
- This may be used immediately and or stored in a refrigerator for 24 hours.
- Do not re-heat the decoction as it will lose its flavour and taste.
* Used coffee residue is a good source of nutrition when added to the soil for growing roses.
