Filter Coffee - Filter Kaapi Recipe | How to make south indian filter coffee

Filter Coffee Recipe
Making filter coffee (filter kaapi) isnt a big deal but to get the perfection sure comes only practise. I am totally an instant coffee lover but can have filter coffee once in a while. Filter coffee is always ammas department as she loves it and she says she cant proceed her daily chores without her morning dose :)
Filter Kaapi
The below pic shows a south indian coffee filter. It has a lower container that collects the filtered coffee and upper container where the coffee powder and water is added to form the decotion.
Filter Kaapi Recipe
Now lets get on to see how we prepare filter coffee:

Filter Kaapi(Coffee) Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Serves : 2 to 3
Recipe Category: Beverage | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

For the decotion:

Coffee Powder - 3 heaped tsp
Water - 1 cup

For the coffee:

Strong decotion - 1/4 cup(adjust according to the strongness you want)
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp
Note* : This decotion can make around 2-3 cups of coffee depending on the strongness.

Method:

  1. First add 3 tsps of filter coffee powder to the filter container. Allow water to boil.Add the boiled water.

  2. Add the top chamber of the filter. As you see the decotion drops and gets collected in the lower part of the filter as shown. After adding water close and keep it undisturbed for 10mins until all the decotion drops down.

My Notes:

  • Once the decotion is added to the milk, do not overheat. If you want to heat then place the coffee tumbler inside a container which has boiling water.
  • You can refrigerate the decotion for a day.
  • We can take even 2 decotion by adding in little more water once the 1 st decotion is taken and used. The 2nd decotion is not very strong.
  • If you use decotion stored in fridge, heat the decotion separately by placing it inside a container which has boiling water.

    You have posted this post at right time for me. I do not drink coffee and tea. My husband need only filter coffee. Moreover next week i have to make coffee for nearly 20 to 25 members. Can you share me the percentage of coffee powder . Normally at my home 80 and 20 ratio. I would like to know your coffee and chocory ratio. So that you are helping me a lot.

    Thanks in advance

    1. You can use 10-12 tsp of coffee powder, water and milk around 5-6 cups. I have just rounded off, you can adjust according to your taste. But do you have a filter that can hold so much? Else you can make it in batches and refrigerate it. Hope this helps!

  42. Hello, I'm just visiting from Knapkins.com, intrigued by your filter kaapi. I know of American drip coffee, espresso, coffee from a French press, an Italian press, Turkish coffee, instant coffee, but I have never heard of South Indian filter coffee. The utensils are beautifull. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.
