15gms coffee
100ml water
south indian filter


  1. Add 15 gms of coffee for 100ml of water in the top compartment of the filter and spread evenly with a spoon and then fit the top compartment on the bottom chamber.
  2. Place the pressing disc with the stem on the top compartment and press down. Then pour 100ml of boiling water into the top compartment. Place the lid of the compartment and allow it to drip for around 10 minutes.
  3. While the coffee is brewing, boil milk on the stove.
  4. Pour the boiled milk into the dabara and add 2-3 Tbsps of the brew to it. Add sugar to taste.Pour the mixture between the dabarah and tumbler at some distance between the two until the coffee is well mixed and cool enough to drink.
  5. Then serve the coffee in either the tumbler or dabarah.

Fun fact: the distance between the pouring and receiving cup during the mixing leads to another name for the south Indian filter coffee which is "Meter Coffee".
