Filter Coffee


Best thing in the morning is of steaming hot filter coffee. I love when the smell wafts through it is divine.

The Coorg Mountains in Southern India is famous for its coffee plantations.It is truly paradise.
The coffee roasted on a low temperature for a prolonged duration of time. It gives it a intense aroma. This coffee is meant for the aficionados(no decaf)

Child hood memories create a coffee craving. Growing up parents never used give us coffee due to the caffeine factor is what I concluded lately. In my neighborhood Mylapore there is a lot of little coffee roastery so the kids used to hang out late evening when the coffee bean used to get roasted.
