A typical day in Chennai does not go by without the words ‘oru kaapi podu’ (which loosely translates to ‘make a cup of coffee for me, will you?’) being said by someone in every house or restaurant. It simply does not count as a full day if one does not have a cup of coffee, or as they say in Chennai, kaapi.
The tradition is rich and multi-phased, including a two-tiered filter to steep and tamp the coffee and a brass tumbler-dawara used to mix the brew with sweetened milk, which is claimed to be the most ideal way to enjoy a delicious cup of filter coffee. And of course, it all starts with a high-quality, precisely ground coffee beans.
