How to prepare Kumbakonam Degree Coffee - Kaapi

Not a day starts without the filter coffee for every South Indian. Early in the morning, waking up to the aroma of the freshly made thick decoction blended with thick milk always makes the day a very fine one.

The coffee powder combination:
One can get the aroma and taste only when the proper combination of the beans are selected and they are properly roasted and ground too.

One of the popularly known combination is 200gms Peaberry+ 200gms A+50gms Robusta and the other is 200gms Plantation+200gms Peaberry+100gms Chicory. The chicory is known to give the aroma and taste that makes the coffee lovers go for it. Whatever be the combination, the beans are roasted properly and should also be ground finely. The ground powder should be stored in airtight container too.

The coffee making method:

In a coffee filter add the coffee powder to the top chamber up to half of the filter. Press the coffee powder lightly with the mushroom shaped umbrella. Do not over press it, if done there will be no decoction. Pour the water evenly. Close the lid and in 10 mins fresh thick decoction can be obtained.

While the decoction is getting ready, boil the milk and keep it ready. In a tumbler and dabara, add 1 spoon of sugar, and decoction upto 1/4th of the tumbler. Pour the boiled milk to it. (Never add decoction to milk). Pour the coffee from tumbler to dabara to get a froth. Drink it slowly by enjoying it. (Many men can be seen with their coffee tumbler in right hand and their favourite news paper in the left hand).

Recipe for Coffee Syrup

South Indians without coffee is something unimaginable. This is definitely a sort of mixture of 2 or 3 recipes that I have seen in the net. When my brother came to know that Cold Coffee he wanted me to add this coffee syrup recipe. This can be used to make coffee milkshake, or used as topping in ice creams.

Before making this syrup it is better to check out the capacity of the coffee maker or coffee filter and the quantity of syrup one wants to make.

Filter Coffee Powder - 24 tbspns
Hot Water - 2 cups
Sugar - 12 tbsp

How to make coffee syrup:
In a coffee filter or coffee maker, add enough spoons of coffee powder and add hot water to it. When the decoction is ready remove and keep it separately. To the coffee powder add 1/2 of the original amount of water. You will get a second decoction. Again add the same quantity of coffee powder and add the second decoction first and half of the first strong decoction to the coffee powder. The resultant decoction will be extra strong and thick. Use the same decoction and prepare decoction one more time with fresh coffee powder. There will be a triple strength coffee powder.

For the total amount of decoction add half the quantity of sugar. For example if there is 2 cups of decoction, 1 cup of sugar is to be added. Stir constantly till the sugar is dissolved. The sugar is to be added to the hot decoction and to be ensured that it dissolves completely. Store the syrup in airtight jar and refrigerate it.

Recipe for Coffee Syrup - காபி சிரப்

This syrup is for my brother who loves Cold Coffee.

Mix this syrup in chilled milk (3 tbsp for 1 cup milk), or use it in coffee milk shake or use it as ice cream topping.

The syrup that you can get is totally based on the size of coffee filter and the quantity of filter you require. You can make this either using percolator or using filter. In the filter, add coffee powder that is needed for atleast 6 people. Pour hot water over it and get thick decoction. Take the first decoction for this syrup. Add more hot water to it and get the second decoction. You can then throw off the powder. Add the same amount of coffee powder again in the filter. Heat the first decoction (dont heat the decoction directly on fire. Heat it either in microwave or keep the decoction in a vessel and keep that vessel in boiling water).

Add that decoction to the filter. You will get more stronger decoction. Now add hot water to this powder and take the second decoction. Throw off this powder too.

Again add powder to the filter and follow the same procedure as above. The decoction that you will get is stronger. Measure the resultant decoction, add 1/2 the quantity of sugar to it. (For Eg. if there is 5 cups of decoction add 2 1/2 cups of sugar.)

Refrigerate it and use it for a long time.
