I am a coffee lover and I wanted to share the taste of my everyday coffee. I am really addicted to coffee, just once a day, everyday. For me, the day starts with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and I am sure this is the same for every coffee lover in the world. I like Madras Kaapi that I will never miss everytime I visit Saravana Bhavan and Madras Cafe in Sunnyvale, CA. They have the best Madras Kaapi in the SF bay area. Kaapi is slang for coffee in Tamil nadu.
After I tasted the Seattle's Best - french roast coffee, I don't prefer any other brand or any other variety in the same brand in the US. The best decoction that makes the day. Thanks to my friend Priya for introducing this coffee to me. All you need is French roasted, ground Seattle's best coffee powder and a coffee maker. I use Black & Decker 5 cup coffee maker with stainless steel carafe. Of couse you will need #4 coffee filter.
I don't regret that I don't have a typical south Indian style coffee filter brewing Narasus's coffee or Leo coffee from Tamil nadu, after making decoction in this coffee maker. Just one tablespoon of coffee powder for one cup of coffee and it is ready in two minutes.
Ingredients for preparing 2 cups of coffee:
Seattle' best french roast ground coffee powder - 2 tablespoons
Water - two third cup (one third for one cup coffee)
Milk - two third cup (one third for one cup coffee)
Sugar - 2 teaspoons
Pour water in the water resorvoir.
Place the #4 filter in the filte basket.
Add exactly 2 tablespoons coffee powder and press it so that the powder is equally distributed in the filter.
Place the carafe and switch on the coffee maker and let it start brewing.
Meanwhile, heat milk in microwave for 2 minutes.
When the milk is ready, the decoction will also be ready as it takes only a couple of minutes to brew.
Turn off the coffee maker and pour the hot milk in the carafe and add 2 spoons of sugar. Adjust the sugar to your taste.
Stir briskly and pour immediately in the coffee cups. You can as well heat the milk in 2 cups and then pour the decoction to the milk and stir with sugar.
Enjoy the intense, bittersweet coffee with the aroma of the fresh brew. Hmmm... that is one best coffee.
